The influence of examination stress on the reactions of the autonomic nervous system in students with different levels of functional mobility of nervous processes (FMNP) was studied. More intense functioning of the cardiovascular system and the strain of all regulatory mechanisms during examination stress were characteristic of individuals with low FMNP, whereas students with high FMNP values were characterized by a weaker strain of the mechanisms of cardiac rhythm regulation, more economical activity of the cardiovascular system, and better performance on the examinations. The activation of humoral, metabolic, and sympathetic effects was observed in all the subjects under examination stress, along with decreased parasympathetic effects on the cardiac rhythm.
