Coffee Scent Might Be Enough to Boost Your Brain
A new study from the Stevens School of Business in New Jersey, USA, finds that even coffee scent can sharpen the brain under certain conditions.
In the study, 114 students were involved. The participants were divided into two group and both had to answer mathematical questions. One group has been exposed to a coffee smell during the study. The scent was free from caffeine and other stimulants.
The researchers also executed a follow-up survey. They asked questions of 208 individuals not involved in the first test and found that a coffee scent was associated with being more alert and energetic, compared with other scents such as flowers, or with no scent.
Lead researchers of the study Adriana Madzhrov says: “Olfaction is one of our most powerful senses. Employers, architects, building developers, retail space managers and others, can use subtle scents to help shape employees' or occupants' experience with their environment.”
