Coffee affects the brain
The results of magnetic resonance imaging of the brain durialike in year and a half showed changes in the network of neurons in it.
Researcher Russell Poldark from Stanford University decided to undergo an MRI of his brain twice a week for 10 minutes each time, as his brain became the most widely studied in the world.
Poldark explained his decision to perform this experiment on himself because he wanted to understand how different parts of the brain interact with each other and how lifestyle influences brain structure. The results of a previous study conducted by scientists from Kyoto University in Japan have shown that magnetic resonance imaging shows a difference between the brain of happy people and the brain of unhappy people.
So to get more clear results, Poldark decided to scan his brain every Tuesday and give a sample of his blood for analysis before eating breakfast.
The results of this blood analysis helped the professor to know the link between brain functioning and gene expression, as well as what happens in the body when suffering from various diseases. For example, when psoriasis worsens and develops, the expression of genes involved in provoking inflammation and developing an immune response to it intensifies.
The researcher says that the results obtained need more time to study and analyze.
The results of this study showed that drinking coffee on an empty stomach forces the brain to work differently. Without coffee (which the researcher drank every Thursday before the MRI and blood tests), the sense and visual areas of the brain functioned much better.
The results of this experiment clearly indicate that caffeine affects and alters the network of neurons in the brain. This experiment is ongoing, meaning that the researcher is still recording new data, and these results will allow, according to his opinion, to obtain new information about the functioning of the brain and the relationship between its various parts
