Does Caffeine Decrease Neuroprotection/neurogenesis?


Recommended Posts

Caffeine increases BDNF, and prevents stress induced decreases in BDNF.


However, chronic BDNF downregulates the TrkB receptor. - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8752592


This is true of caffeine as well. -http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22841916


Does downregulation of TrkB stops BDNF from performing it's functions, like neuroprotection and neurogenesis?
