ABSTRACT
The article discusses three models of extrasensory perception (ESP) training developed by several psychiatrists to provide evidence for ESP experimentations. It mentions that issues on how ESP can be trained has emerged following the arguments of researchers that ESP phenomena are real. Among the three models are Ryzl's training model, White's training model and Tart's ESP training model, which have failed due to unreliable methods used and insufficient trial-by-trial feedback, which supposedly enable the participants to learn how to give correct responses during the training.
