Abstract

We examined 102 patients with symptomatic, cryptogenic, and idiopathic forms of epilepsy in order to investigate the physiological mechanisms providing the efficiency of purposeful activity in patients with this disease. Three clusters of patients were formed with the use of the Gorbov-Shulte performance test. The patients of "low efficiency" cluster were characterized by the lack of habituation mechanisms in the activity of afferent systems and mechanism of motor response; the activity rate of stress adaptation systems and the rate of intrasystemic tension during the preparation to purposeful activities were higher than in patients of "intermediate" and "high performance" clusters.
