Abstract/OtherAbstract:
It was shown that frequent geomagnetic perturbations and also meteorological, climatic, photoperiodic, and gravitational changes in high latitudes are the main cause for human chronic stress in the North Free-radical damage of cellar and subcellar membranes (oxidative stress), disturbance of ferments' functions and changes in metabolism, connected with it; decrease in functional, detoxical, secretory and other functions of liver and other barrier organs; tension of endocrine adaptive functions; decrease in immune protection; psychoemotional strain are the main elements of geophysically conditioned northern stress. The slow wave regularity of stress reaction course has been found. Dependence of pathological reacting to meteo-geophysical factors of northern stress manifestation has been found out. The data of mechanisms providing stability to geophysically conditioned stress have been presented.
