A recent NYU study reveals that music and coffee can significantly enhance cognitive performance.

According to Neuroscience News, an online science magazine, a recent study conducted at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering found that "listening to music and drinking coffee can impact a person’s brain activity in ways that improve cognitive performance, including in tasks requiring concentration and memory."

The study utilized "groundbreaking brain-monitoring technology" to examine and measure brain activity "during cognitive tests under various stimulants, including music, coffee, and perfume. Results indicated increased “beta band” brain wave activity, linked to peak cognitive performance, when subjects engaged with music or consumed coffee."

Findings indicate that music and coffee can alter brain arousal, promoting improved cognitive performance.
