IQ Improvements With Neurofeedback:
In a 1998 medical study by Thompson and Thompson cited in the journal Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, 98 children and 13 adults received 40 neurofeedback sessions for ADHD-like symptoms and had significant improvements with attention and reducing impulsivity.
Additionally, they experienced an average gain of 12 points on IQ testing.
