On the history of differential psychophysiology at the Psychological Institute

The author describes principal stages in the establishment and development of Russian differential psychophysiology founded by B.M.Teplov. Complex psychological and psychophysiological research has revealed two types of ability - communicative and cognitive - with different sets of psychological and physiological components. Applied research of language learning, for instance, has revealed a number of stable naturally determined individual strategies - communicative, cognitive and mixed. On the example of the triad "teacher - method - student" the author illustrates variability of each of the three types as well as relation of inborn characteristics to acquired skills.
