Cognitive advantages of chewing gum. Now you see them, now you don’t
TLDR
It is proposed that the time-limited nature of performance benefits can be attributed to mastication-induced arousal, and the lack of improvement in cognitive function when gum is chewed throughout testing may be because of interference effects due to a sharing of resources by cognitive and masticatory processes.
