lobotomy or frontal lobotomy is a surgical procedure in neurology which frontal lobe consists of cutting or scraping the connections between the frontal lobe and the rest of the brain. Once a common treatment for psychiatric conditions, it is now generally believed to be useless for that purpose. Although the procedure did alleviate some symptoms, it also created neurological deficits in both personality and intellect, often resulting in total incapacitation or death. Since the development of anti-psychotics, the use of the procedure has been in steep decline.
