Purpose. Study of the link between psychophysiological state and levels of aggression in elite wrestlers. Methods. 27 elite wrestlers aged between 18 and 30, all members of the Ukraine National Greco-Roman Wrestling Team were examined. The scale of aggression by Buss & Darkee [1957] was used. The following parameters were estimated: subjective comfort / discomfort and balance of process of excitation / inhibition. Results. The athletes were separated into two groups by level of aggression: group 1 with low levels of aggression (15 wrestlers); and group 2 with high levels of aggression (12 wrestlers). The first group is characterized by low significant levels of physical and verbal aggression compared to the second group (p<0,01). The results of subjective psychical state assessment indicate the prevalence of discomfort in athletes in group 2 compared to the first group (p< 0,05). The study of the balance of nervous processes revealed the presence of excitation of the nervous system in group 2 athletes with high levels of aggression. Conclusions. Aggression is a non optimal emotion which influences an increase in subjective psychical discomfort and processes excitation of the nervous system in elite athletes.
