Abstract: Borderline intellectual functioning is a cognitive impairment that applies to people who have lower than average intelligence but do not have intellectual developmental disorder or mental retardation. Borderline intellectual functioning is diagnosed by IQ test scores that are between 63 to74. This classification describes a group comprising about 7% of the general population that falls into an area of delayed intellectual, emotional, and/or adaptive functioning that teeters on the edge of intellectual disability but does not actually qualify for that specific diagnosis using DSM-IV-TR strict IQ criteria. Mandukaparni (Centella asiatica Linn.) is one among the four medhya (nootropic) drugs as per Ayurvedic literature. These drugs are collectively called as ‘Medhya Dravyas’. Hence the present study entitled “study on the efficacy of Centella asiatica Linn. on borderline intelligence of 5th standard students of a rural area in Southern India” was carried-out by a thorough review of the psychological tests and interviewing methods.
