Autism is a neuro-developmental disorder characterized by a lack of appropriate eye contact, facial expression, social interaction, communication, and restricted repetitive behavior. Research on autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) shows that neurofeedback can lead to less struggle and overall better functioning.
Research has shown that related aspects of ASD are the result of brain dysfunction and abnormal neural connectivity. The brains of individuals with ASD show areas of both excessively high connectivity and deficient connectivity. Some areas of the brain are chatting excessively with themselves while failing to communicate normally with other regions.
