The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) used the research criteria developed by the American Psychological Association (APA) for treatment efficacy to biofeedback and neurofeedback treatments for a number of disorders.  This reference "Evidence Based Practice in Biofeedback and Neurofeedback" is available at the link below:

What evidence is there that LENS works?

 One study, specifically about LENS, is particularly important because its large sample size (N=100) lends credibility to its utility:
Larsen, S., Harrington, K., Hicks, S. The LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System): A Clinical Outcomes Study on One Hundred Patients at Stone Mountain Center, New York. Journal of Neurotherapy, Vol 10, No. 2/3, 2006 pp. 69-78.
One hundred patients (selected randomly from over 300 cases) ranging in ages 6 to 80 had at least 10 LENS sessions each. Average symptom ratings across 15 major problem areas (e.g., anxiety, mood disturbance, attention problems, fatigue, pain, sleep problems, etc.) showed significant improvement (p<.0001) from beginning to end of treatment. Statistically significant reduction in EEG amplitudes were evident as well.
The following books explain the use of LENS across an number of diagnostic categories:
