Coffee helps teams work together: Caffeine makes people more positive by making them more alert -- ScienceDaily June 2018
Paper: "Coffee with co-workers: role of caffeine on evaluations of the self and others in group settings" http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0269881118760665?journalCode=jopa

Abstract

This research explores the effect of consuming a moderate amount of commercially available caffeinated coffee on an individual’s self-evaluated participation in a group activity and subsequent evaluations of the experience. Across two studies, results show that consuming a moderate amount of caffeinated coffee prior to indulging in a group activity enhances an individual’s task-relevant participation in the group activity. In addition, subjective evaluations of the participation of other group members and oneself are also positively influenced. Finally, the positive impact of consuming a moderate amount of caffeinated coffee on the evaluation of participation of other group members and oneself is moderated by a sense of an increased level of alertness.

Dr. Cody Dunne speaks about Network Motif Simplification at the recent CHI 2013 conference in Paris, France -- www.connectedaction.net
"His paper with Prof. Ben Shneiderman at CHI 2013, “Motif simplification: improving network visualization readability with fan, connector, and clique glyphs“, demonstrates a novel method for improving the quality of network visualizations. Common network motifs appear frequently in networks. In network motif simplification these patterns are removed and replaced with simpler composite images"
