New research seems to indicate that being in poverty taxes the brain almost to the tune of a loss of 13 IQ points, or comparable to the cognitive difference that’s been observed between chronic alcoholics and normal adults.

While it is hard to understand what difference 13 IQ points make, but the cognitive difference between chronic alcoholics and normal adults seems very huge indeed -  http://www.theatlanticcities.com/jobs-and-economy/2013/08/how-pover....

Hopefully this impact is not permanent.
