Episodic exposure to nicotine, caffeine, and amphetamines triggers malfunctions in the fetal brain, specifically affecting the development of the indusium griseum.
Researchers report there is no real relationship between how many cups of coffee you drink per day and an increased risk of developing any particular cancer. They also ruled out a link between coffee intake and dying from the disease.
A new study reveals caffeine therapy appears to have benefits for healthy brain development in children born prematurely. Researchers report preterm babies given caffeine therapy had better cognitive scores, reduced odds of cerebral palsy and less hearing impairments as toddlers.
A caffeine jolt may give you a little more energy following a restless night of sleep, but it doesn't necessarily help with boosting cognition. Researchers found that while caffeine helped sleep deprived students to perform better at some simple cognition tests, it had no effect on improving performance on more challenging tasks, like placekeeping tests.

Researchers report people who drink at least one cup of coffee a day are at a 12% reduced risk of dying from cancer, stroke and heart disease as those who did not partake in a daily cup of Joe. Lower mortality rates were present regardless of whether people drank fully caffeinated coffee or decaf, suggesting the association with longevity is not tied to caffeine.
