Effects of Caffeine on Brainwave Synchronization?
I know that Caffeine gives a boost in the amount of Beta-Waves in the brain, but what does it do to the Synchronicity of brainwaves between the 2 Hemispheres?
It's well known that a brain with higher synchronicity is more efficient than a brain with uneven brainwave synchronicity...
Since I don't have access to any Electroencephalography technology, I figure someone in this field might have an idea on what caffeine does other than increasing beta-wave activity and simulating a specific hormone that's produced during sleep.

Without commenting on the notion of synchronization and effective cognition, this may be useful, especially section 4.

That's a fairly thorough article. Thank you, I will have to read the entire thing later when I get more time.
Any additional information is appreciated if anyone wants to give a general explanation :P.
