I would like to know the effect of the level of hydration of a person on their ability to focus. I'm looking for statistics like a X% increase in dehydration will lead to a Y% decrease in focus or ability to concentrate.

I've been trained that a 2% level of dehydration within the human body not only effects your ability to concentrate, but it also starts to effect your short-term memory as well. It is recommended that for the average, not so active individual to drink 1-2L of water a day to stay hydrated. Anybody can estimate their hydration level by checking the color of their urine. If it is dark than you will require more water through the day, and the color will lighten as your hydration level goes up. But you also want to be careful not to flood your system with H2O as there have been some studies that found that it may force too much protein from your system causing problems with your liver.
