Introduction: Migraine is sever and painful type of headache which can be treated in different ways. Recent
studies have demonstrated that neurofeedback is a good option for treatment of migraine headaches.
Method: The main aim of present research was to investigate the effect of neurofeedback on Memory of migraine
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 Wechsler Memory Scale in two stages (pretest and posttest).
The obtained data were analyzed through covariance analysis method.
Result: After 30 sessions of neurofeedback training, considerable improvement in general memory of the
experimental group was observed. Also the two groups (experimental and placebo) presented significant differences
in the memory.
Conclusion: According to the researcher’s view, migraine patients are able to control their brainwaves with
participating in neurofeedback training sessions, so their total memory would be increased.
