Purpose: to reliably distinguish minimally consciousness syndrome from the vegetative state (unresponsive wakefulness syndrome) using electromyography. Theoretical, psychodiagnostic and statistical methods were used in this work. The methods used were the Glasgow coma scale, the coma recovery scale (revised), electromyography, and computed tomography. The first Chapter "Theoretical overview of the term small consciousness syndrome" presents the views of domestic and foreign authors on the problem of impaired consciousness, its types, functions and mechanisms of formation, as well as on the problem of diagnosis and rehabilitation of patients in a state of small consciousness. The second Chapter, "Empirical study of consciousness disorders", presents the progress of research on the level of consciousness and motor activity in patients with impaired consciousness, the results of statistical processing of the data obtained and their discussion. As a result of the conducted work, it was revealed that there were no significant differences in the patient's behavioral response, in cases of comparing patients with the diagnosis of small consciousness syndrome "minus" and small consciousness syndrome "plus". Statistically significant differences in motor response were found when comparing patients with areactive wakefulness syndrome and patients with small consciousness syndrome "plus". When comparing patients with areactive wakefulness syndrome and small consciousness syndrome "minus", not unambiguous results were obtained, since significant differences were revealed only in one comparison.
