[The individual typological characteristics of operator activity during long-term monotonous work on the computer].

[Article in Russian]


Individual neurophysiological and psychophysiological characteristics were analyzed in two groups of subjects with different extraversion and genetically determined levels of cortical activity during learning the novel for them monotonous computer operation. Most of the subjects improved their performance to the end of four-hour work. The degree of visual fatigue correlated with changes in P70 component of the evoked potentials. The intergroup difference was revealed in overcoming the visual discomfort during attention concentration. The visual cortex was facilitated in the introverts with high-voltage cortical activity (1st group) and disfacilitated in the extraverts with the low-voltage cortical activity (2nd group). Increase of the simple motor reaction time in the extraverts is considered as a result of temporary impairment of the visual function during the monotonous operator's work, and the worsening of the emotional condition as a consequence of the visual discomfort. The problems are discussed concerning different adaptation mechanisms in realization of the activity under study depending on the genetically determined features of the CNS.
