Structure of dissertation: the thesis contains 194 pages of main text, 279 references, 7 attachments, 45 tables and 39 figures. The results obtained have been published in 52 scientific works.
Domain of study: physiology, neurosurgery, psychology. The aim and objectives of the study: to evidence the particularly of cognitive-affective disorders at children with cerebellar tumors in function of localization and lateralization of damage, optimization of diagnostic and therapeutic process. Methodology of the scientific research: clinico-physiologic, vegetative, neurophysiologic, statistical evaluations.
Novelty and study originality: was shown that at children with cerebellar tumors, the injured structures manifests different in cognitive-affective syndromes and psychomotor disorders; modifies different the activity of stem, subcortical and corticocerebral structures; appears the paroxysmal cerebral activity, that correlates with expression of cognitive disorders; disturbing activity of suprasegmental autonomic centers and hemomicrocirculation.
The scientific issue solved in the thesis: highlighting the clinical, neuropsychological and neurophysiologic features of cognitive-affective disorders in relation with localization, volume and lateralization of cerebellar damage at children, that allows optimization of diagnostic strategy, neurosurgical and conservative treatment.
Theoretical value: to evidence the dependence between the structure and expressivity of cognitive-affective disorders and localization, volume and lateralization of damaged the structure of cerebellum, the functional state cerebro-cererbal neuronal network and the indices of vegetative regulation; enlargement the knowledge about the interrelations of different physiological systems and mechanisms of restoring the functions in process of surgical and conservative treatment.
Practical value: to demonstrate the possibility of diagnostic cognitive-affective disorders at children with cerebellar tumors based on association of clinical, psychological, electrophysiological methods; to evidence the dynamical features of cognitive-affective disorders in postoperative period under the conservative treatment.
Implementation of scientific results: was done in Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Medical Center “Neuronova-plus”, Clinical Hospital of Psychiatry.
