Innovative processes in high education system now are connected not only with the experiments with the contexts of the programs but with the changing the forms of teaching too. The purpose of the study was to compare the psychophysiological parameters, which reflect the state of regulative system and stress of the students, studying at the different forms of education. The most typical psychophysiological methods, allowing to appreciate the regulative mechanisms strait is variability of the cardiac rhythm (Myrtek, 2004). Variability of cardiac rhythm shows the activity of parasympathetic and sympathetic parts of vegetative nervous system (Brenner et all., 1998). 314 students of the Herzen state pedagogical university were participants. The first group includes the full part students of the first (122 students, mean age 18,3±0,9 yr) and the fifth (55 students, mean age 22,2±1,0 yr) year, the second group – 46 students studying both in the college and at the university, the third group – part-time (61 students, 22,2±1,0 yr.) and part-time accelerating training students (30 students, mean age 36,0±4,6 yr. ). We made the cardiac rhythm record for each students using program-apparatus complex “OMEGA-М” with lead hand-hand. The different forms of education give the students different educational loads. We show that the younger student the more possibility she (he) will achieve the high marks with straining the vegetative regulation. This method could lead to the worsening student’s health.
