Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses realtime feedback of electroencephalograph (EEC) to highlight brain activity and teach self-regualtion. EEC neurofeedback uses sensors that are placed on the scalp to measure brain waves. Neurofeedback is commonly provided using visual and or sound, with positive feedback for desired brain activity.

Current research shows neurofeedback may be an effective treatment intervention for a range of brain-related conditions. It has been successfully used in the treatment of acute stress, addiction, ADHD, aggression, anxiety, apathy, autism/asperger, depression, headaches, insomnia, migraines, trauma (PTSD).
