Abstract

The study was intended to rate the psycho-physiological and cognitive abilities versus the individual motor activity levels. Subject to the study were 17-20 yearsold males (n=50) split up into 4 similar groups that were different only in the motor activity levels. The mechanisms behind the differences in the psychophysiological and cognitive abilities of differently active people appear to correlate with their nervous system organization dominated by the cerebral cortex activity specifics that, in their turn, are largely driven by the repeated habitual patterns of motor activity. These patterns, in their turn, are apparently determined by the training process specifics and manifest themselves in adaptive, compensatory, psychological and rehabilitative qualities and abilities of the individuals rated with different motor activity levels. The study data and analysis demonstrated the motor activity intensity and nature causing a modulating effect on the psychophysiological and cognitive ability rates. Growing motor activity levels generally will scale down the individual anxiety levels, neurosis levels and exposure to the latter. In addition, cyclic physical workloads will help increase the neural process lability rates as verified by the performance rates (with initial pace growth) in the tapping tests and attention focusing tests.
