The paper studies changes in Russian psychiatry which occurred from 1975 to 2010. An effort is made to analyze how scientific paradigms changed when Soviet psychiatry transited through the "hard times" in this science to its current state. The results of the analysis show that there are no cardinal changes in paradigms. Just the part of studies carried out by physiological methods as compared with those carried out by psychological ones diminished. Also, the rate of works on schizophrenia decreased.
