Abstract

Energy drink consumption is increasing worldwide, especially among young
adults, and has been associated with negative health outcomes, ranging from headaches and anxiety, to fatal caffeine toxicity. In two experiments, we tested the prediction that energy drink consumption is in part driven by automatic cognitive processes (attentional and approach biases), with a view to modifying these to reduce consumption.
