Caffeine is the most commonly consumed psychoactive stimulant in the world. Caffeine is often found to enhance vigilance, alertness and performance in sustained attention tasks for extended periods. It has been implicated in the enhancement of certain higher-order cognitive processes, such as those involved in the active monitoring and coordination of behavior. Caffeine influences also performance in real-life motor tasks, such as handwriting, and in simulated-motor tasks, such as driving. Although the positive effects of caffeine are well documented, controversy surrounds the relationship between regular consumption of caffeine and its beneficial effects. © 2012 Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
