Chocolate enhances cognitive performance

Back in my university years, I’d eat around four Ricoa-brand Curly Tops just before taking an exam. I found that it somewhat helped me perform better in tests.

For the longest time, I thought this was just a mere self-imposed superstitious tradition on my part. But apparently, scientific studies done by a Dr Bryan Raudenbush of the Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia show that chocolate may actually improve one’s cognitive abilities!

  1. Hi Kae, thanks for reading. 🙂

  2. 🙂 I’m a lurker for quite some time. I think your blog is very informative and I like to check it everytime I have a free time. :d I share the same sentiments regarding chocolates before exam. I thought it’s just my psychological reasoning that I tend to eat more chocos during examination date. Anyway, thanks for the article.:)
