Neurotherapy, also known as neurofeedback training or EEG biofeedback, allows children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to visualize their brainwaves. Scientists theorize that a part of the brain called the mirror neuron system may develop differently in autistic children. The brain cells involved in the mirror neuron system are responsible for imitation and empathy. The theory behind neurofeedback training for ASD is that by visualizing brainwave patterns, participants can actively control their brains and move their patterns more toward those of normal children.
Neurofeedback is used primarily to treat high-functioning children with ASD who struggle with learning... read more
