Although it is well known that water is essential for human homeostasis and survival, only recently have we begun to understand its role in the maintenance of brain function. Herein, we integrate emerging evidence regarding the effects of both dehydration and additional acute water consumption on cognition and mood. Current findings in the field suggest that particular cognitive abilities and mood states are positively influenced by water consumption. The impact of dehydration on cognition and… Expand
Dehydration and cognition: an understated relation
Water is essential for mental health. In spite of research evidence that dehydration has detrimental effects on cognitive functioning, the element of water has often been understated in the nutritionExpand
Hydration, the brain, and aging
TLDR
There are only a few studies taking into account the relationship between hydration status and cognitive function in the elderly, but the results are not strong enough to confirm the negative effect of dehydration on cognitive functioning in this age group. Expand
Narrative Review of Hydration and Selected Health Outcomes in the General Population
TLDR
There is a growing body of evidence that supports the importance of adequate hydration in maintaining proper health, especially with regard to cognition, kidney stone risk, and weight management, but the evidence is largely associative and lacks consistency. Expand
Does Hydration Status Influence Executive Function? A Systematic Review.
TLDR
There is a strong need for consistent methodological approaches and a greater number of long-term studies of dehydration and euhydration and EF, and half suggested effects on EF domains, particularly working memory, inhibitory control, and attention. Expand
The association between hydration status and cognitive function among free-living elderly volunteers
TLDR
As the elderly volunteers had a good hydration status, there was no significant relationship between cognitive performance and urine specific gravity and it is necessary to replicate the findings with a larger and more diverse sample of older adults. Expand
Autonomic adaptations mediate the effect of hydration on brain functioning and mood: Evidence from two randomized controlled trials
TLDR
Decreases in fMRI BOLD activity in the orbito-frontal cortex, ventral cingulate gyrus, dorsal cingulates cortex, hypothalamus, amygdala, right striatum, post-central gyrus and superior parietal cortex were observed when participants were hypo-hydrated, associated with reduced HRV, greater perceived effort, and more anxiety.

Cognitive performance in relation to hydration status and water intake among older adults, NHANES 2011–2014
TLDR
Hydration status and water intake were moderately associated with attention/processing speed among females and potential sex differences in cognitive responses to hydration status were investigated. Expand
Neurocognitive Disorders and Dehydration in Older Patients: Clinical Experience Supports the Hydromolecular Hypothesis of Dementia
TLDR
The hydromolecular hypothesis intends to explain the relationship between dehydration and cognitive impairment in older patients as the result of protein misfolding and aggregation, in the presence of a low interstitial fluid volume, which is a defect of the microcirculation. Expand
Effects of controlled dehydration on sleep quality and quantity: A polysomnographic study in healthy young adults
TLDR
This is the first study to show that controlled mild dehydration does not seem to affect sleep quality and quantity in young healthy adults. Expand
Hydration status affects mood state and pain sensation during ultra-endurance cycling
TLDR
Findings indicate dehydration may adversely affect mood state and perceptual ratings during ultra-endurance cycling. Expand

TLDR
Future research should be conducted using dose-response designs and state-of-the-art behavioral methods to determine the lowest levels of dehydration that produce substantive effects on cognitive performance and mood. Expand
Dehydration Influences Mood and Cognition: A Plausible Hypothesis?
TLDR
In young adults there is little evidence that under normal living conditions dehydration disrupts cognition, although this may simply reflect a lack of relevant evidence. Expand
Dehydration affects brain structure and function in healthy adolescents
TLDR
It is suggested that prolonged states of reduced water intake may adversely impact executive functions such as planning and visuo‐spatial processing because of the limited availability of brain metabolic resources. Expand
Influence of progressive fluid restriction on mood and physiological markers of dehydration in women
TLDR
Urine specific gravity appears to be the best physiological measure of hydration status in subjects with a normal level of activity; saliva osmolality is another reliable and non-invasive method for assessing hydration Status. Expand
Water, hydration, and health.
This review examines the current knowledge of water intake as it pertains to human health, including overall patterns of intake and some factors linked with intake, the complex mechanisms behindExpand
Mild dehydration affects mood in healthy young women.
TLDR
In conclusion, degraded mood, increased perception of task difficulty, lower concentration, and headache symptoms resulted from 1.36% dehydration in females, and increased emphasis on optimal hydration is warranted, especially during and after moderate exercise. Expand
The relation of hydration status to declarative memory and working memory in older adults
TLDR
Results emphasize the importance of considering hydration status and blood pressure when interpreting cognitive performance in older adults and suggest a relationship between dehydration and poor cognitive performance. Expand
Impaired cognitive function and mental performance in mild dehydration
TLDR
Objective data, using tests of cortical function, support the deterioration of mental performance in mildly dehydrated younger adults and intervention models directed toward improving outcomes in dehydration must incorporate strategies to enhance prompt recognition of cognitive dysfunction. Expand
The effects of fluid restriction on hydration status and subjective feelings in man.
TLDR
The present investigation was designed to investigate the physiological responses and subjective feelings resulting from 13, 24 and 37 h of fluid restriction (FR) and to compare these with a euhydration (EU) trial of the same duration in fifteen healthy volunteers. Expand
Effects of drinking supplementary water at school on cognitive performance in children
TLDR
A significant negative correlation between dehydration and the auditory number span is found, which indicates a beneficial effect of drinking supplementary water at school on short-term memory and there was a positive correlation between dehydration and performance in the verbal analogy task.
