Headache is sever type of pain which can be treated in different ways. Recent studies have demonstrated that neurofeedback is a good option for treatment of headaches. The main aim of present research was to investigate the effect of neurofeedback on Memory of headache patients. To do so, a sample of 30 subjects was selected for experimental and control groups by a accessible sampling procedure. Subjects were assessed with the Stroop test and the Wechsler Memory Scale in two stages (pretest and posttest). The obtained data were analyzed through covariance analysis method. After 30 sessions of neurofeedback training, considerable improvement in executive function and general memory of the experimental group was observed. Also the two groups (experimental and placebo) presented significant differences in the executive function and memory. According to the researcher’s view, headache patients are able to control their brainwaves with participating in neurofeedback training sessions, so their total memory and executive function would be increased
