NPR : ‘My Lobotomy’: Howard Dully’s Journey

‘My Lobotomy’: Howard Dully’s Journey

Another fantastic link from Jonty, about the psychiatrist Walter Freeman and his rapid ice-pick lobotomies. Curiously, I think my grand-uncle was given a lobotomy many years ago, but it’s one of those topics that my family refuses to talk about. (And considering most lobotomies require familial consent, who can blame them?)
