Abstract

Purpose – to study neuropsychological peculiarities and the autonomic nervous system condition of medical students with vegetative dysfunctions. There were examined 257 students of Bogomolets National Medical University with forming main groups with syndrome of autonomic dystonia (hypotonic type – 132 students, hypertonic type – 49 students, mixed type – 33 students) and control group – 43 students. There were used testing by the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) and Eysenck Personality Inventory (EPI), functional probes for detection of the autonomic tone, autonomic reactiveness and autonomic providing of activity. Achieved data of the main groups show domination of the sympathicotonia, dystonic disorders of autonomic nervous system of supra-segmental level, psychic non-stability, increased T-marcs of F, 9, 8 MMPI scales, what may be used for early diagnosing of the autonomic dysfunctions.
