Material and Methods. 160 students from the medical faculty on their 3rd and 6th years of education were surveyed. The type of headache was determined according to the International Classification of Headache (version 3, 2018). Neuropsychological status of students with tension headaches was studied with use of Schulte test, digital character substitution test, hospital anxiety and depression scale (HADS), test for determining sleepiness and sleep quality, tests for semantic and phonetic activity and memory. Statistical analysis was performed using MS Excel 2010 Results. The most common type of headache among medical students was primary headache, namely tension headache (78.2%). Migraine without aura (20.5%) and cluster headache (1.3%) were less common. Changes in the neuropsychological status were revealed in students suffering from tension headache. Conclusion.

Aim of the study. The aim of the work was to evaluate the activity of neuron specific enolase (NSE) in patients with primary hypothyroidism (PHT). Materials and methods. In 110 patients with PHT detailed study of neurological and neuropsychological status, determined NSE level in serum. Results. The results of this study showed that the NSE activity depended on the gender, age of the patient, the duration of existence of the endocrinopathy and the presence / absence of neurological symptoms. Conclusion. Produced a comprehensive assessment of the state of the nervous system in patients with PHT, NSE defined value as a non-specific marker NA lesions in these patients. The goal set at the beginning of the study, achieved.
