J Lanini et al, 2015. Acute personalized habitual caffeine doses improve attention and have selective effects when considering the fractionation of executive functions. Human Psychopharmacology, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT: Caffeine is widely used, often consumed with food, and improves simple and complex/executive attention under fasting conditions. We investigated whether these cognitive effects are observed when personalized habitual doses of caffeine are ingested by caffeine consumers, whether they are influenced by nutriments and if various executive domains are susceptible to improvement. This was a […]

D P Evatt et al, 2015. A brief manualized treatment for problematic caffeine use: a randomized trial. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT: Objective: The goal of the present investigation was to develop and test a brief therapist-guided manualized treatment for problematic caffeine use, including cognitive-behavioral strategies and 5 weeks of progressively decreased consumption. Method: Individuals seeking treatment for problematic caffeine use (mean daily caffeine consumption of 666 mg at baseline) were randomized using a waitlist-control design […]

E Loftfield et al, 2015. Association of Coffee Consumption With Overall and Cause-Specific Mortality in a Large US Prospective Cohort Study. American Journal of Epidemiology, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT: Concerns about high caffeine intake and coffee as a vehicle for added fat and sugar have raised questions about the net impact of coffee on health. Although inverse associations have been observed for overall mortality, data for cause-specific mortality are sparse. Additionally, few studies have considered exclusively decaffeinated coffee intake or use of coffee additives. Coffee intake was assessed at baseline by self-report in […]

M A Klebanoff & S A Keim, 2015. Maternal Caffeine Intake During Pregnancy and Child Cognition and Behavior at 4 and 7 Years of Age. American Journal of Epidemiology, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT: Although caffeine is commonly consumed during pregnancy, there are few reports on the association of in utero caffeine exposure with offspring cognition or behavior during childhood. We evaluated the association of maternal serum paraxanthine, caffeine’s primary metabolite, at <20 and ≥26 weeks’ gestation with the child’s intelligence quotient (IQ) and problem behaviors at ages […]

M Ding et al, 2015. Association of Coffee Consumption with Total and Cause-Specific Mortality in Three Large Prospective Cohorts, Circulation, published online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT: Background: The association between consumption of caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee and risk of mortality remains inconclusive. Methods and Results: We examined the associations of consumption of total, caffeinated, and decaffeinated coffee with risk of subsequent total and cause-specific mortality among 74,890 women in the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS), 93,054 women in the NHS 2, and […]
