[Indices of mental working ability in school students learning some subjects by advanced educational programs].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

The study enrolled 390 schoolchildren attending classes of general, humanitarian, and mathematical education profiles. Mental working ability, memory, and speed and level of cognitive processes were examined. Lower indices were revealed in pupils attending mathematical classes which may be a manifestation of greater fatigue characteristic of this group of pupils. The education in classes of humanitarian profile was associated with significantly higher volume of the operative memory. This finding suggests that the advanced learning of humanities promotes the development of memory. Higher speed of cognitive processes and accuracy of solution of mental tasks were shown to be characteristic of the pupils of mathematical classes.
