By M. V. Sergiyevsky it is published apprx. 300 scientific works devoted to questions of regulation of breath, peripheral reflexes, physiology salivary and prostatic glands.

He studied a neural structure of a respiratory center and functional value of various types of its neurons, inspiratory and expiratory zones of integration of afferent impulses; found out that activity of a respiratory center is regulated by hl. obr. bark of big hemispheres, and also a diencephalon and the bridge, to-rye provide adequate adaptation it to changes of life activity of an organism according to information obtained from the periphery.
