Structure and function of the brain are use-dependent variables based on "synapse plasticity". Since synapses are driven by chemical transmitters, synaptic functions are liable to be modified by extrinsic chemicals displaying affinities for synaptic receptors or modulators. Caffeine is a widely used chemical substance that can invade synapses, and has several biochemical and metabolic actions on synaptic activities. This review focuses on the actions of caffeine on changes in structure and… CONTINUE READING
