N Clarke & D Richardson, 2020. Habitual caffeine consumption does not affect the ergogenicity of coffee ingestion during a 5km cycling time trial, Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, published online.

ABSTRACT There is growing evidence that caffeine and coffee ingestion prior to exercise provide similar ergogenic benefits. However, there has been a long-standing paradigm that habitual caffeine intake may influence the ergogenicity of caffeine supplementation. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of habitual caffeine intake on 5-km cycling time-trial performance […]

S Salek et al, 2020. Association of maternal dietary components during pregnancy and/or lactation with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, Int J Endocrinol Metab, Volume 18 (3)

ABSTRACT Context:  Considering the increasing trend in the incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), the identification of its environmental determinants, especially those related to the prenatal and lactation period, might ultimately result in primary prevention of the disease. We aimed to review the evidence of the association between mothers’ dietary components during pregnancy and/or […]

N Czajkowski et al, 2020. Caffeine consumption, toxicity, tolerance and withdrawal: shared genetic influences with normative personality and personality disorder traits, Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology, published online.

ABSTRACT Our main aim was to estimate the extent of overlapping etiology between caffeine consumption and response and normative and pathological personality. Linear mixed-effects models were used to identify normative personality domains and personality disorder (PD) traits for inclusion in multivariate twin analyses together with individual caffeine related measures. Data were obtained from Norwegian adult […]

T Filippini et al, 2020. Dietary habits and risk of early-onset dementia in an Italian case-control study, Nutrients, Volume 12 (11)

ABSTRACT Risk of early-onset dementia (EOD) might be modified by environmental factors and lifestyles, including diet. The aim of this study is to evaluate the association between dietary habits and EOD risk. We recruited 54 newly-diagnosed EOD patients in Modena (Northern Italy) and 54 caregivers as controls. We investigated dietary habits through a food frequency […]

J Tallis et al, 2020. The acute effect of caffeine ingestion on cognitive dual task performance during assessment of static and dynamic balance in older adults, Nutrients, Volume 12 (11).

ABSTRACT The present work aimed to evaluate the effect of 3 mg·kg−1 caffeine consumption on the standing and dynamic balance performance of older adults and sought to establish if caffeine ingestion can modulate the influence of a cognitive dual task on balance performance. Twelve apparently healthy participants (8 females) aged >65 years (72 ± 3.7 years) […]
