Abstract : The paper is concerned with some aspects of alpha training and the effects of alpha wave on the human auditory sensitivity threshold. Fifteen subjects composed of seven meditators and relaxed persons and eight non-meditators volunteered for alpha training. The results were that the meditator and relaxed person group produced at higher percentage of alpha than the non-meditator group at .05 level of significance. The feedback group generated a statistically significantly higher percentage of alpha than the non feedback group at .05 level. The auditory sensitivity thresholds under the alpha state did not differ significantly from the auditory sensitivity thresholds under normal state at .05 level of significance.
