[The motor dominant in man].

[Article in Russian]


Study of the motor dominant in man has shown that in aftereffect of rhythmic electrocutaneous stimulation of hand, a latent focus of excitation is formed in the CNS. When using sensory stimuli (light, sound) and also stimuli, addressed to the second signal system, a hand motor reaction appears in the rhythm of earlier electrocutaneous stimulation, what testifies to preservation of rhythmic nature of excitation in the dominant focus. Summation process in the dominant focus is not reflected in human consciousness. Study of the brain biopotentials has shown that at formation of human motor dominant, typical changes of spectral-coherent characteristics of the neocortex electrical activity appear: within the "dominant" hemisphere, the spectrum power, increases in the range of low frequencies; highly coherent connections of electrical processes appear in the delta-range of the frontal-parietal area at conjugate decrease of combination of processes in the parietal-occipital area of the cerebral cortex. Formation of the dominant focus in one hemisphere causes general reconstruction of the structure of intercentral relations of both hemispheres electrical activity.
