The purpose of the article is to reveal the peculiarities of the neurovegetative status of children of senior preschool age. The article exposes the importance of the autonomic nervous system, features of electrical activity, cerebral blood flow on functioning of the child’s body.

Childhood is a sensitive period of development of many neurophysiological and physiological functions. In children the electrical activity of the brain can be considered as an indicator of general properties of the nervous system and takes the leading place in the structure of the neurodynamic constitution of a person and some individual-psychological differences underlying them.

Prolonged psycho-emotional overstrain, a high level of personal anxiety in children and the etiological factor cause increased activity of adaptation-compensatory reactions, in which the most important role is played by the autonomic nervous system. Disturbances of neurovegetative regulation, occurring practically in all diseases, under the influence of a huge number of damaging factors are nonspecific, adaptive-compensatory. In children, psycho-vegetative syndrome, characterized by a combination of psycho-emotional and vegetative disorders is encountered in most cases.
