Energy drinks are creating a buzz, but not the way most people would expect.

Centre College students are questioning if energy drinks really give us an extra punch of pep?  The students are measuring brain wave activity, in a double blind study. The project started about two years ago. The results might be hard to swallow for makers of high powered energy shots.

"Energy drinks because of their caffeine work, but that energy blend might not be giving them an extra boost as marketers claim they do, according to Gwynne Rose, a student at Centre College.

The study shows the energy drinks are no more effective than other sources of caffeine. The results are preliminary, but a spokesperson for Centre College said the project opens the door for future research.
