Currently, two projects involving interinstitutional and international collaborations are ongoing. In the EEG and MRI project coordinated with the Centre for Chronobiology, Department of Psychiatry, we are investigating the brain plasticity induced by chronic caffeine intake through its influence on SWA at sleep. Furthermore, in the PET-MR project coordinated with the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine, Forschungszentrum Jülich, we will examine the adenosine modulation of brain plasticity induced by daily caffeine and chronic sleep restriction. The results will be progresively published from the end of 2019 onward.
