Basic scientific achievements The first comprehensive work concerning neuro­physiological mechanisms of centrifugal control over the visual function, conta­n­ing a general ac­co­unt of the experimental data and public­ations pertaining to the amygdalar regulation of visual perception and the proof of existence of a multifunctional effect exerted by the amyg­da­lar complex on the centrifugal impact of the amyg­dala, mezen­ce­­­phalic reticular formation and hypo­thalamus on the perceptive function of the retina, including its distal  part. The participation of the mentioned structures in the mechanism of infor­mation processing by individual neurons or neu­ronal ensembles in the central structures of the visual system is also considered. The mechanism of oscillatory potentials generation may rely on neu­ronal activity, which indicated by a certain correlation that has been found in their generation. Presented un the dissertation is a analysis of the short-latency responses to ultra-bright (extreme, temporary blinding) light stimuli that were recor­ded for the fist time in all structures of the visual system, and a discussion of the centrifugal control over the retinal functions extending to the distal part of the retina (the paradigm of “a”- and “b”-components in the – ERG) that was shown for the first time in the electro­phy­siological experiments.  Also discussed disturbances of the vision-amyg­dala interaction in conjun­ction with the path­oge­nesis of neurodegenerative disor­ders accompanied by the ag­no­stic syndrome and an impairment of the perception and cog­nition functions of the visual analyzer in the specific vision-controlled cognitive motor act.
