[The dependence of the emotional state of 8- to 9-year-old children on the conditions of play].

[Article in Russian]


Dependence was studied of emotional state of children, aged 8-9, on the terms of computer play: without additional instruction (with a strategy typical of the child), at time deficiency and at demonstration of techniques of play without limitation in time. Prior to and during the play the following parameters were recorded: heart rate (HR); frequency of basis tone (Fb.t.) and evaluation of frequency of the first formant (n(0] of the vowel "a" in the word "da" pronounced by the child during the play in response to acoustic signal; reaction time (RT) to acoustic signal; parameters of playing activity and also spontaneous verbal expressions of children. Increase of emotional stress during the play at time deficiency was accompanied by the most expressed changes of HR, RT, Fb.t., worsening of playing activity and the increase of the number of negative emotional reactions. When playing without additional instruction, the children showed the best results of playing activity, accompanied by the least expressed changes of HR and Fb.t. in comparison with the background at the greatest expressiveness of the n(0) change, and predominantly positive emotional reactions. The analysis of the correlation of the motivational and informational characteristics of the studied playing activity allowed to make a conclusion about preferential connection of HR and Fb.t. with the motivational and n(0) with informational components of the playing activity.
