In chapter 11 we study many of the structures of the brain and spinal cord. Over the course of human history the brain
and spinal cord have been misunderstood in the study of disease and illnesses. For example, frontal lobotomies were
routinely performed in the mid-to-late 20th century to treat such illnesses as schizophrenia, depression, back aches,
anger management issues, hyperactivity and many more. The patient would be rendered unconscious via an electric
shock and then probes would be inserted into the orbits of their skull. The probe would be moved back and forth to
destroy the brain tissue in that area. The practice of lobotomies has been outlawed in the United States, (except for very
specific reasons), but not before tens of thousands of people had their brains butchered by traveling doctors. For this
discussion take one of these structures we have beet talking about in chapter 11 and research historical and or current
medical procedures that were meant to “cure” a disease. In your post address issues like, what the illness was, what
the treatment was meant to do, why people used it, why it was bad, etc…… Your post should not exceed 300 words and
must have appropriate PA references.
