Biofeedback can monitor a variety of body functions like heart rhythm, temperature or galvanic skin response. Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback that monitors brainwaves. It may help people achieve deep relaxation and help treat conditions like adhd, autism and epilepsy. Drug addicts who practice neurofeedback have much lower relapse rates.

Is a subspecialty of biofeedback. It involves feedback of brain activity through surface scalp sensors. It is used to treat adhd, alcohol & substance abuse, epilepsy, headache, and traumatic brain injury, and to teach optimal performance. General biofeedback uses breathing, heart rate, muscle, sweat gland, and temperature feedback. For more information, go to www.Bcia.Org.
