Other Autonomic Biofeedback Methods

A few other types of feedback have been reported that seem to indicate learned regulation of the ANS. Some reports of control of sweat gland activity at the extremities appear credible. Hyperhydrosis is a disorder of excessive sweating. Biofeedback is used, with the signal usually taken from the palms of the hands, to reduce excessive activity. Whether the reduction is an example of direct autonomic control or is secondary to learning to dampen the sympathetic response is not known.

Biofeedback of the oculomotor response to improve accommodation has been reported. Special visual devices are used to improve the muscular component of the visual accommodation for improved acuity.
