The patient is attached 5 to a machine measuring the function he wishes to control. When the desired result is achieved, the patient hears a steady tone that indicates that the patient has successfully manipulated that body function to a more desirable state. For example, if a patient wishes to learn to control his heartbeat, he is attached to a biofeedback 10 machine monitoring his heartbeat. When the patient manages to successfully slow his heart beat, the biofeedback machine rewards him with a low, dull noise.
