The aim of this review is to substantiate theoretically the application of the cognitive evoked potentials method to evaluation of physiological mechanisms of cognitive functions and their contribution to determinants of the military occupational adaptation. The review of literature includes questions of application of the cognitive evoked potentials method in the military professional selection, and in the study of mechanisms of mental processes among servicemen in the norm, at combat-related stress, at posttraumatic stress disorder, and at other kinds of pathology. The requirement is substantiated to include the cognitive evoked potentials method in procedures of psychometric meta-analyses and in crossvalidation studies carried out within the framework of development of the modern methodical apparatus of psychodiagnostics.
