Caffeine Boosts Memory in Mice with Alzheimer’s

July 5, 2009: 09:36 AM EST
New research from the University of South Florida adds weight to the possibility that caffeine could help improve memory in people “destined to develop Alzheimer’s disease”. The researchers, led by neuroscientist Gary Arendash, found that 500 milligrams of caffeine (equivalent to five 8-oz cups of coffee) “reversed memory issues in mice bred to develop Alzheimer-like symptoms”. In a news release, Arandesh said the findings suggested that caffeine could be a viable treatment for established Alzheimer’s disease. The research was conducted on mice bred to develop the disease, and there was no evidence that caffeine improves memory in normal mice.
