Just Seeing Reminders of Coffee Can Rev Up The Brain
Next time you need a pick-me-up, try taking a look at a picture of coffee.
Seriously, just look at a picture. Turns out, merely looking at something that reminds us of coffee can cause you to become more alert and attentive, according to a recent study. It is no secret that coffee is popular for its ability to wake us up, and now a “priming” effect is enough to influence our thoughts and behaviors at the memory of coffee. The reason? We become triggered by our emotions when seeing the image or given a reminder of coffee, resulting in a jolt of energy. There is even more on this research over at Psych Central.
