During the new research volunteers used green tea extract before performing tasks related to working memory, by monitoring brain activity through MRI scans. Scientists claim green tea enhances several cognitive functions, in particular our working memory.

The new findings suggest that green tea could be used to treat dementia and other psychiatric disorders. The new research, from the University of Basel, found that green tea extract increases the brain’s effective connectivity where they saw significant improvements in working memory tasks after people had consumed green tea-writes “Daily Mail”.

The findings suggest green tea could be used to help treat memory loss caused by psychiatric disorders or as part of recovery. Volunteers were given a drink with green tea extract before being given working memory tasks to solve. By monitoring brain activity through MRI scans, scientists could see an increased connectivity between the parietal and the frontal cortex of the brain.
