Insane in the membrane?
I know you are well aware that coffee drinking can improve your alertness, but a new study found that caffeine may have other positive effects when it comes to the brain functioning.
A study conducted at the University of Minho School of Medicine in Portugal and published in “Molecular Psychiatry” used MRI technology to compare brain activity of coffee drinkers to non-coffee drinkers while they were resting, performing a task and just after drinking a cup of coffee.
What they found was a link between drinking coffee and a decreased level of connectivity in the brain which suggests improved motor control and higher levels of alertness. The MRI imaging also showed dynamic activity in several areas that are associated with an increased ability to focus, learn and remember.
