Abstract: The aim of this study was the physiological substantiation of express algo-rithms for assessing cognitive functions according to the data of clinical, psy-chological and neurophysiological studies in conditions of time deficit. The in-tegrative indicator SCL-90-R - "general index of severity" has a high statistical significance (p <0.05) in both healthy subjects and neuropsychiatric patients. The effectiveness of the "Mini-Mult" method in conditions of time deficit is de-termined by the results of the scales of hypochondria, depression, hysteria, par-anoia, psychasthenia, schizoid and hypomania (p <0.05). We also used a block of logical techniques. A similar survey for 15 - 25 min can be used as a stand-ard for assessing neurocognitive status in screening studies of large groups. EEG power indices and spectra in theta, delta and alpha frequency ranges are an effective reflection of mental status.
