Experimental and theoretical studies are presented related to the ground-state magneto-optical resonance
observed in cesium vapor confined in an extremely thin cell ETC , with thickness equal to the wavelength of
the irradiating light. It is shown that utilization of the ETC allows one to examine the formation of a magneto-
optical resonance on the individual hyperfine transitions, thus distinguishing processes resulting in dark re-
duced absorption or bright enhanced absorption resonance formation. We report experimental evidence of
bright magneto-optical resonance sign reversal in Cs atoms confined in an ETC. A theoretical model is
proposed based on the optical Bloch equations that involves the elastic interaction processes of atoms in the
