Foods that improve concentration

I'll just charge ahead with the list: red apples, cranberries, blue berries, melons, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, plums, avocados, blackberries, red grapes, carrots (eaten raw), onions, beet, red ball pepper, oranges and citrus fruits, red tomatoes, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, spinach and leafy greens, tea, (small amounts of) chocolate, soybeans, nuts and seeds, eggs, whole grains, liver, salmon, sardines, bluefish, halibut, herring, mackerel, tuna.
Shorter version: spinach, red tomatoes, carrots, strawberries, soybeans, melons, broccoli, liver, salmon, herring, tuna, halibut, mackerel, green tea, whole grains and nuts and seeds.
In addition, glucose might be really helpful for some people who need a short time memory boost, such as for an exam or important meeting. Tea most certainly helps, vitamin B12 supplements are the only memory boosters scientists swear by, and in case you don't like eating fish you could do with an omega-3 supplement.
How did I come up with the above? Well, I've been following health related articles pretty closely for many years now and the list is merely a compilation of the food items that are common to such lists (you can check out MSN's report on Alzheimer's disease; LiveScience reports a 14-day plan to improve memory that actually works, and The Fruit Pages lists stuff you shouldn't eat before an exam). Now you know how horrible my hippocampus is...
