    Abstract Rationale: A neutral stimulus repeatedly paired with administration of a drug may elicit a conditioned response. This process, termed pharmacological classical conditioning, may be important in the understanding of placebo effects. Objective: The unconditioned response to caffeine is...

    Rationale. To test the theory that expectations control placebo responses. Objective. Subjects (n=20) were asked how much they expected their arousal to increase after one or two cups of coffee, and were subsequently exposed to one or two cups of decaffeinated coffee, or to caffeine equivalent...

    Caffeine has become the most prevalently consumed psychostimulant in the world, but its influences on daily real-world functioning are relatively unknown. The present work investigated the effects of caffeine (0 mg, 100 mg, 200 mg, 400 mg) on a commonplace language task that required readers to...

  • Modification of caffeine effects on the affect-modulated startle by neuropeptide S receptor gene variation. Domschke, Katharina; Klauke, Benedikt; Winter, Bernward; Gajewska, Agnes; Herrmann, Martin; Warrings, Bodo; Mühlberger, Andreas; Wosnitza, Katherina; Dlugos, Andrea; Naunin, Swantje; Nienhaus, Kathrin; Fobker, Manfred; Jacob, Christian; Arolt, Volker; Pauli, Paul; Reif, Andreas; Zwanzger, Peter; Deckert, Jürgen // Psychopharmacology;Aug2012, Vol. 222 Issue 3, p533 

    Rationale/objectives: Both the neuropeptide S (NPS) system and antagonism at the adenosine A2A receptor (e.g., by caffeine) were found to play a crucial role in the mediation of arousal and anxiety/panic in animal and human studies. Furthermore, a complex interaction of the neuropeptide S and...
