There have been numerous studies on the effects of caffeine on behaviour and cardiovascular function. It is now important to clarify the mechanisms that underlie such effects, and the main objective of the present study was to investigate whether changes in central noradrenaline underlie some of the behavioural and cardiovascular effects of caffeine.

The main aim of this research was to identify factors that were related to caffeine consumption. From this investigation it can be concluded that coffee is the main source of caffeine and that consumption varies with time of day. Individuals may be utilising the arousing effects of caffeine by consuming it at times when arousal is low for instance to(More)
Abstract Rationale. There is a vast literature on the behavioural effects of caffeine. Many of the studies have involved single administration of a large dose of caffeine that is not representative of the way in which caffeine is usually ingested. Further information is required, therefore, on the behavioural effects of realistic patterns of consumption.(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the impact of upper respiratory tract illnesses on efficiency at work. This was done using the 'after-effect' technique with measurements being taken before and after work and the difference between these giving an indication of efficiency over the day. All of the volunteers (N = 48) were tested when healthy to(More)
