AbstractGoal: to study certain characteristics of emotional constitution of young generation in Siberia and their dependence on adaptive capability. Method and methodology: 124 apparently healthy young male students of Zheleznogorsk branch of Krasnoyarsk State Pedagogical University named after V.P. Astafyev were examined on a volunteer basis upon their informed consent. Up-to-date conventional techniques were used for making anthropometric measurements and conducting functional study. Personality questionnaire by G.Y. Eysenck was used for referring students to emotional types. Results: body weight of young males from Zheleznogorsk increases from asthenic to normosthenic and picnic types of build, while the height decreases from normosthenic and asthenic to picnic types. About 40% of young males are of normosthenic build and about 30% each can be referred to picnic or asthenic types. As far as adaptation potential is concerned, in the majority of young males strain of adaptation mechanisms or poor adaptation (90-92%) are present, and only 8-10% have normal adaptation characteristics. Parameters of adaptation capabilities in characteristics of emotional status adequately reflect functional activity of central links of regulation and adaptation ‘resources’. Among characteristic features of emotional constitution of young males from Zheleznogorsk are moderate and considerable introversion, a high degree of emotional stability in situations when adaptation mechanisms are strained, and rather high emotional instability among young males with normal adaptation characteristics and even higher among those with poor adaptation mechanisms. All these are probably connected with radioecological situation at Zheleznogorsk. Scope of application of results: medicine, psychology, age-specific physiology, anthropology, neurology.
