Neurofeedback has existed since the 1960s. A subtype of biofeedback, neurofeedback works by making use of computers to monitor the performance of major parts of the brain. Electronic sensors are attached to the individual’s scalp and provide a measurement of brainwaves in real-time; these measurements are further used as a form of feedback to the individual so that the individual can learn to control their brainwaves.
