The wake-up effect of coffee: reality or placebo?

what if that first morning coffee What do we take to really wake up? does not fulfill its purpose in our brain? What if everything was a combination of the coffee experience? Spanish and Portuguese scientists have studied coffee drinkers to find out if the wake-up effect of those first cups in the morning depends on the properties of caffeine or if it is the mere experience of drinking coffee, and they have discovered that it only partially reproduces the effects of drinking a cup of coffee, activating areas of the brain that make one feel more alert, but not the areas of the brain that affect working memory and goal-oriented behavior.
