The methods of neuro-physiological identification of an individual proposed in the project based on obtaining experimental data using the innovative Eye-tracking technology and computing means of processing them allow monitoring and diagnostics of the state of cognitive processes during the educational activities of students and schoolchildren.

The information technology of indirect monitoring and diagnostics of neuro-physiological states of the personality on the basis Volterra models of the oculo-motor system (OMS) is offered. In this case, the OMS is considered as a nonlinear dynamic system, the identification of which is carried out using multidimensional transition functions (MTF) – integral transformations of Volterra kernels [1].

The aims is to develop instrumental software tools for constructing a nonparametric dynamical model of the human OMS, taking into account its inertial and nonlinear properties, based on data from experimental input-output studies using test visual stimulus and innovative eye-tracking technology; implementation of the received information models in practice diagnostics of states cognitive processes.

The experiments were organized in order to classify subjects by the state of fatigue. The data for constructing the model – the OMS responses to the same test signals, were obtained using the Tobii Pro TX300 eye tracker at different times of the day: "In the Morning" (before work) and "In the Evening" (after work).

According to averaged data of OMS responses on visual stimuli with a different distance from the start position on the basis of LSM the MTF h1(t), h2(t,t) and h3(t,t,t) of the OMS. In this case, an approximation of the OMS response in the form of a polynomial model of degree N = 3 is used [2].

A Bayesian classifier of the degree of human fatigue in the space of features formed on the basis of MTF is constructed. Evaluation of the recognition confidence indicator (probability of correct recognition) P = 0.9375.
