- Both cerebral hemispheres take turns to adjust to extreme conditions of rotating shift work in the Arctic. As a result of chronically uncompleted acclimatization and tensed adaptive processes, the right hemisphere is mainly active which triggers some characteristic differences in higher mental functions and activation of vegetative reactions. To evaluate possible research methods for lateralization of brain function with rotating shift workers, handle one of the applied problems of occupational psychology which was working out certain work and rest regimen (WRR), time-to-time survey for shift workers (n = 76) using Activatiometer was conducted. The shift workers carried out oil and gas extraction based on field work (WRR formula 12×12/52 + 52) and field rotating shift work (WRR formula 12×12/24 + 24). Statistically significant (p□0.001) right hemisphere activation with shift workers is found predominant both during the day time and rotation period monitoring regardless of type of shiftwork management (TSM) used. Reduction of the total cerebral cortex activation can serve as a marker indicating body reserves wearing off with shift workers, ending of working efficiency period, and hence duration of rotating shift period, which can be used to develop optimal WRR in the Arctic.
