A systemic methodological approach to psychophysiology is described. In the framework of this approach a wide range of experimental data are analyzed, including the results of neuronal recordings in vitro, and in awake normal and pathological animals, performing both complex instrumental and simple behavioural acts. Also included are data from experiments with human subjects in tasks involving categorization of words, skilled performance, participation in game activity in groups, and completion of psychodiagnostic questionnaires. On the basis of these analyses, qualitative and quantitative descriptions of the principles of formation and realization of individual experience are suggested within the framework of a unified methodology.
