al. (2004) tend to support the claim that cognitive enhancing effects of guarana are not solely attributed to the caffeine content of the herb, but to other compounds as well. These two studies report that guarana interventions with low doses of caffeine provided significant improvements in certain cognitive domains.

of playing but the ability or inability to find successful coping strategies to the stress this generates that may be at the heart of the findings of this study.
