Lobotomy

Did you know that…..

the first Lobotomy was performed by Egas Moniz in 1936 ?

It consists of the surgical section of certain nerve fibers of cerebral lobes.

Lobotomy was once widely used, particularly in the psychotic patient, as schizophrenics, but now practically not used by the poor results obtained.
