  • The article is devoted to finding approaches to the diagnostics of psycho-physiological level of development and early detection of functional and pathological changes in the central nervous system development in children and adolescents living in polar and subpolar zones of Russia. The new data concerning the impact of harsh Arctic conditions on the formation of brain electrogenesis and its performance, the development of mental processes, features of adaptive alterations and disadaptative disorders in children and adolescents. An innovative method ofassessing the algorithms of age-related maturation of electrogenesis of cortical and subcortical structures and their interaction has been developed to control the level of integrative and cognitive-mental brain activity in healthy children and adolescents, and to detect possible deviations in their development. Priority data concerning cognitive and mnestic processes in children of different ages living in the northdemonstrating normal development and psychoneurological pathology was obtained.
    The practical significance of the results consists in the possibility of using them for improving screening checks of childrenand early diagnostics of latent deviations in developmental age.
