The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of the audiovisual stimulation (AVS) on the psycho-functional state of university students.
There was found a decrease of stress in regulatory systems and psycho-physiological status of students after 20-22 sessions of AVS. AVS contributed to the increase of influence of the parasympathetic regulation and more economic heart rate, increase of parasympathetic regulation, enhance autonomic contour of regulation and a more efficient functioning of the heart at rest and during orthostatic testing. Course of AVS resulted in increase of the adaptive potential, enhanced neurohormonal influences and eliminate energy deficit states. After the training course of AVS it was observed an improvement of the socio-psychological adaptation, enhancing of psychophysiological parameters (acceptance of others, mechanical memory, speed shifting attention, a simple visual-motor reaction, decrease in reactive and personal anxiety). AVS trainings may be recommended for application in the educational process, as well as in areas related to a state of heightened neuropsychological and physical tension (sports, dispatch service, etc.), for a more rapid recovery and improve the functional state of the organism.
