Effects of carbohydrate and protein co-ingestion during short-term moderate-intensity exercise on cognitive function.
TLDR
There was no difference in the cognitive performance when CHO or CHO-PRO solutions was consumed during 30 minutes moderate-intensity cycling, and no significant main effects of the exercise on all cognitive function variables were observed.
The effect of beverages varying in glycaemic load on postprandial glucose responses, appetite and cognition in 10–12-year-old school children
TLDR
Girls may demonstrate improved short-term memory after consuming beverages with higher protein and lower GL, which inconsistently improves aspects of cognitive function and appetite in children.
The effect of the macronutrient composition of breakfast on satiety and cognitive function in undergraduate students
TLDR
It is suggested that changing the macronutrient content of breakfast influences the glycemic response, but has no effect on the appetitive or cognitive performance measures used in this present study.
Breakfast high in whey protein or carbohydrates improves coping with workload in healthy subjects
TLDR
It is concluded that a breakfast drink high in whey protein or carbohydrates may improve coping with mental tasks in healthy subjects.
Cognitive Performance Following Ingestion of Glucose–Fructose Sweeteners That Impart Different Postprandial Glycaemic Responses: A Randomised Control Trial
TLDR
Cognitive performance was unaffected by different glycaemic responses to beverages during the postprandial period of 140 min, and the mean difference in the trail-making test between beverages was −0.3 sec.
Baseline glucoregulatory function moderates the effect of dairy milk and fruit juice on postprandial cognition in healthy young adults
TLDR
Dairy milk may improve cognition in persons with higher fasting glucose, and consideration of baseline glucoregulatory function is crucial when assessing postprandial cognition, even in non-diabetic and non-hypoglycemic samples.
The Overnight Effect of Dietary Energy Balance on Postprandial Plasma Free Amino Acid (PFAA) Profiles in Japanese Adult Men
TLDR
It was found that a high protein meal in the evening that contained 40% energy would significantly increase the PFAA concentration the next morning, even more than 12 hours after the meal, suggesting that thePFAA profile does not reflect the subject's health condition, but rather the acute effect of high protein ingestion.

Cognitive performance and its relationship with postprandial metabolic changes after ingestion of different macronutrients in the morning
TLDR
The concept that good and stable cognitive performance is related to a balanced glucose metabolism and metabolic activation state is supported.
Post-prandial changes in measures of fatigue: Effect of a mixed or a pure carbohydrate or pure fat meal
TLDR
Central and subjective fatigue may be influenced by raised plasma free tryptophan to competitor amino acid ratios induced by carbohydrate intake but other aspects of central arousal are affected by fat intake.
Effect of meal composition on alertness and performance of hospital night-shift workers. Do mood and performance have different determinants?
TLDR
In this population, self-selected for night-shift work, there were no clear-cut differences in subjective feelings or objective performance between the different diets, and the preferred regular diet gave the best performance and had a metabolic profile similar to the CHO diet.
Effects of protein and carbohydrate meals on mood and performance: interactions with sex and age.
Aging, Nutrient Choice, Activity, and Behavioral Responses to Nutrients a
TLDR
Overall, the young and old adults exhibited significant differences in calorie and carbohydrate intakes and also mood and activity, even when they chose their foods from an identical selection of food items and followed the same basic daily routines while living in a controlled study environment.
Plasma amino acid responses in humans to evening meals of differing nutritional composition.
TLDR
If brain neurotransmitter synthesis is controlled by the same mechanisms as in rats, then the evening meal containing added TRP was the only one of the meals likely to affectbrain neurotransmitter (serotonin) synthesis.
Counterregulatory hormones during moderate, insulin-induced, blood glucose decrements in man.
TLDR
The results suggest that the mechanisms involved for the release of counterregulatory hormones such as glucagon, catecholamines, cortisol, and GH are very sensitive to a moderate decrease in BG concentration and that there is a close relationship between this hormonal response and the degree of the BG decrements obtained.
