Wake Up and Smell the Coffee?


The Neurocritic: Wake Up and Smell the Coffee?: “When they examined their brains they found reduced levels of mRNA – messenger molecules that indicate when a gene is being expressed – for 11 genes important to brain function. When the rats were exposed to the aroma of coffee, the mRNA for nine of the genes was restored to near normal levels, and pushed to above normal levels for two – GIR, involved in neuro-endocrine control, and NFGR, thought to control oxidative stress”
