The article presents an overview of experimental materials regarding the role of individual-typological peculiarities in the process of adaptation to school. The data on the study of psychophysiological indicators of learning senior classes, taking into account the differentiated profile training. The analysis of the change of the psychophysiological organization on the results of cognitive tests and neurodynamic tests teenagers during preprofile and profile training. It is shown that for each profile training identified certain psychophysiological predictors, allowing for distribution into three groups, "recommended", "conditionally recommended" and "not recommended" to the chosen profile of educational activity, which largely determine the success of the training. Carried corrective actions have an impact on the improvement of indicators cognitive sphere and activities for normalization processes of regulation of physiological systems of the body. It is established that in order to reduce the physiological "cost" of training is necessary to carry out comprehensive correctional actions for students relating to the "at risk". Results of the study allow a differential analysis of the indicators of psychophysiological adaptation of schoolboys to educational and learning process. Our results indicate that both adaptation and successfulness of learning in high school link of defined sufficiently developed psychophysiological qualities selected for this profile, while senior pupils who have psychophysiological characteristics do not match the quality of the selected profile learning develops process maladjustment and increases physiological "price" training.
