[The multipleparameter combinatory analysis of EEG rhythms in norm and at schizophrenia].

[Article in Russian]


On the base of EEG records of 38 healthy subjects and 17 schizophrenic patients the statistical structural analysis of 176 elementary characteristics in all 11 spectral ranges for each of 4 experimental conditions was carried out, employing "Kora-n" recognition algorithm, adopted for EEG analysis by Kaplan. The list of characteristics with a minimal error revealed statistically significant differences between spectral power of delta- and theta-ranges in healthy subjects and schizophrenic patients. Spectral power of these slow rhythms was always higher in the formers then in the latter. As a whole, in schizophrenic patients the decrease of delta-rhythm spectral power in the lower frontal area of right hemisphere and theta-rhythm - in the lower temporal area of left hemisphere most frequently is observed. These results are in agreement with hypofrontality and hypotemporality characteristic of schizophrenic patients and testify to the lack of "fundamental" brain base of cognitive functions. These facts are evidently connected with the significant neurochemical disturbances taking place in schizophrenia.
