This studv was designed to test the possibility that training with the Biolight, a combined audio/visuai stimulation (AVS) and EDR feedback device, would result in positive changes in academic performance. University students who had sought the help of the student counseling staff were divided into two groups of 8 each. The experimental group received 30 sessiom of the combined AVS (using only the photic stimulation) and EDR feedback. The control group received no training. All subjects were given pre-post physiological stress profiles and other psychometric testing. Results indicate that the Biolight training cun improve academic perfomnance.
