Caffeine Enhances Memory


Good news for coffee and cola drinkers. A recent study from Johns Hopkins University has shown that that 200 mg caffeine, which is the amount of caffeine in about one and a half cups of coffee, in has a memory enhancing effect, possibly because it increases the brain’s production of norepinephrine, a chemical that helps with memory storage. I don’t drink coffee, but I think I’ll have another Diet Mountain Dew.
