Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between the patterns of the water consumptions and short-term memory in adolescents during fasting and not fasting. The design of this study is cross-sectional and was conducted from 18 July to 31 October 2013. The research was conducted by giving questionnaires to the students of MAN 6 East Jakarta, medicine and health science and psychology faculty students of Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University. The results showed that there is no significant relationship between the patterns of the water consumptions and memory. The aspects of intentions and beliefs of fasting was suspected as the force underlied the fasting behavior, thus although respondents were dehydrated, it will not disrupt the cognitive function, especially the short-term memory. This study showed that fasting is beneficial to health if done with a full spirit of fasting.
