Average evoked potentials (AEP) were recorded in practically healthy subjects to "meaningless" figures and letters, presented to different halves of the visual field. Analysis of the amplitudes of AEP late components to verbal and non-verbal stimuli reveals hemispheric asymmetry. A higher amplitude of the late positive evoked response (P300) to a "direct"(More)
In healthy adult subjects recognition was studied of geometrical figures presented unilaterally, and of separate letters presented unilaterally and dichoptically to the right and left visual fields. At near-threshold exposition, separate letters are better recognized in the right visual field, than in the left one, regardless of the method of presentation.(More)
20 patients suffering from chronic alcoholism and 10 healthy, righthanded persons with normal sight were examined. Alcoholics were trained to elaborate a temporary connection by means of unrecognized significant word "vodka" related to their dominant motivation. The amplitude of the late positive response P300 was greater and its latency was shorter(More)
Dynamics was studied of the extinction of temporary connection, elaborated by means of motivationally significant word, in patients with chronic alcoholism. Two series of studies were conducted. In the first one the reinforcing stimulus was not recognized by the subject and was perceived as a dull light flash on the screen. In the second one the word was(More)
By means of backward masking, the time of perception of letter stimuli presented to the left and right visual fields, was determined in practically healthy persons who were given different doses of alcohol, and in patients with chronic alcoholism. Evoked electrical activity to the same stimuli was recorded in identical conditions. A small dose of alcohol(More)
The ability of mental construction of easily verbalized geometric figures was studied in 20 healthy subjects by means of recording of the evoked potentials of the cerebral cortex. Fragments of geometric figures were presented with the intervals of 80 and 500 ms. To one half of the subjects the stimuli were presented unilaterally (both fragments to one and(More)
The dynamics of the cortical evoked activity in the process of learning of time microintervals (10, 60 and 180 ms) discrimination was studied in healthy adults. Feedback stimulus visually informing of the real correlations of the differentiated pauses facilitates the discrimination. The factor of the visual field does not affect the estimation of brief time(More)
