LENS: Scientific Articles
Bibliographical references arranged by researcher
Following the discovery of the LENS – Low Energy Neurofeedback System – in the 1990s by Len Ochs PhD, almost thirty scientists have devoted their time to publishing in the written media their knowledge about this neurotherapy system.
In this article, I have arranged all the literature written to date (June 2017) about LENS and its predecessors – AVS and Flexyx – into alphabetical order by author: scientific articles, books, magazines, quotations, etc. Visit the updated 41 links to see the texts in pdf.
