Illustrating Caffeine's Pharmacological and Expectancy Effects Utilizing a Balanced Placebo Design.
Lotshaw, Sandra C.; And Others
Journal of Drug Education, v26 n1 p13-24 1996
Hypothesizes that pharmacological and expectancy effects may be two principles that govern caffeine consumption in the same way they affect other drug use. Tests this theory through a balanced placebo design on 100 male undergraduate students. Expectancy set and caffeine content appeared equally powerful, and worked additionally, to affect subjects' ratings of how much coffee influenced their mood and performance. (KW)
