The point is, Haydi, that in this 1932 work of Luria's (prior to his work with brain damaged war veterans) all his experiments were based on observation of behaviour, and the subject's psychological system was reconstructed in theory on the basis of observations of these "disruptions" of their behaviour, whch did not include striking them on the head with rocks, but just the normal "talk" favoured by psychologists.

BTW, "paramedicals" is a word which describes physiotherapists, nurses, dieticians, speech therapists, and so on, who are not regarded as "real doctors". Different from "paranormal."
