biofeedback

Electronic sensing devices convert blood pressure, heart rate, galvanic skin response, skin temperature, EEG and other physiologic variables into visual or sound signals to provide objective awareness of the degree of success in controlling them as a result of cognitive-behavior therapy interventions or training. This modality may be added to relaxation training to assist in control of anxiety symptoms, headache and other problems.
