Post-study caffeine administration enhances memory consolidation in humans
Johns Hopkins researchers find that consuming some caffeine after performing a task helps to boost memory in people that are not used to it. Michael Yassa, senior author of the paper and an assistant professor of psychological and brain sciences at Johns Hopkins, and his team of scientists found that caffeine has a positive effect on our long-term memory. Their research, published by the journal Nature Neuroscience, shows that caffeine enhances certain memories at least up to 24 hours after it is consumed.
