Abstract We designed the experimental setup for synchronous recording of eye movements and EEG. This system consists of (или includes) aIt composes with fast digital camera (250 Hz) and a standard EEG-recorder. The high frequency video recording provides the detectionng of gaze direction at the every time moment, while the amplitude and temporal characteristics of EEG reflect functional state of the brain during any mental performance. In experiments we studied eye movement parameters and EEG alpha band amplitude dynamics that accompany different cognitive functioningfunctions (processes или activity?) – perceptual and linguistic. The two paradigms involved the different cognitive processes were conducted – guided visual search and syntactic disambiguation. In different mental executionThe eye movement parameters and EEG alpha band amplitude dynamics were related with task performance efficiency and involvement of different attentional subsystem processes during various mental strains. (или mental processes, mental states, activities) involvement.
