The main aspects of interdisciplinary technology of educational process based on the concept of functional asymmetry of the cerebral hemispheres, which reflect space-time asymmetry of the Universe and constitute a certain psychophysiological focus of human organism, are presented in the article. Its urgency stems from the global tendencies, evolving towards the information society (or the "society of knowledge") and influencing the development of education, becoming increasingly multimedia-rich and psychologised. The authors consider the major peculiarities of cognitive strategies of brain’s hemispheres, which should be taken into account in educational process with a wide use of multimedia means when teaching different academic disciplines. It is shown that training materials offered to the students can be differentiated by the right (abstract and verbal) and left (concrete and graphic) video sequences, which corresponds to hemispheric information processing strategies and promotes the synergetic state of synchronization of the hemispheres functions. Meanwhile, the encephalographic studies show that such functional synchronization, revealing the specific state of human brain, presupposes the integration of two information processing strategies, leading to harmonization of the processes of the first and second signalling systems. The algorithms of the most effective influence of multimedia presentations of teaching materials on a student based on the concept of functional asymmetry of human brain have been substantiated. These algorithms provide for combining the "left" and "right" information in such a way that the volumes of two types of information would form a harmonious (golden) proportion.
