Can Intelligence Be Taught? Fastback 29.
Sexton, Thomas G.; Poling, Donald R.
This booklet cites evidence indicating that intelligence can be trained, given a physiologically normal student and an intensely persistant tutor. Methodologies for increasing mental efficiency have in common the principle of coordination of physical and mental processes, whether achieved by simple relaxation training, brain polarization, or biofeedback. Successful evidence and short descriptions of the processes are provided for transcendental meditation, yoga, hyponedia, Bulgarian suggestopedia, autogenic therapy, progressive relaxation, and biofeedback. Current applications of biofeedback, descriptions of biofeedback instruments, and suggestions for a hypothetical biofeedback learning center using relatively inexpensive biofeedback equipment are provided. Also included are a source and price list of biofeedback instruments and a list of recommended reading. (Author/DE)
