“Dr. Walter Freeman, left, and Dr. James W. Watts study an X ray before a psychosurgical operation. Psychosurgery is cutting into the brain to form new patterns and rid a patient of delusions, obsessions, nervous tensions and the like.” Waldemar Kaempffert, “Turning the Mind Inside Out”, Saturday Evening Post, 24 May 1941.[1]

Topic & Preparation: This month we’re focusing on the lobotomy. Please visit the StoryCorps website and review and listen to their radio show on My Lobotomy:

“Dully’s personal journey to find out about his lobotomy took him around the country as he interviewed lobotomy patients, their family members, and people who witnessed the operation. ‘This is my odyssey,’ said Dully. ‘Everyone has one thing have to do before they die, and this is mine.'”

Dr. Liu will be facilitating our discussion on this fascinating and controversial topic.

See you tomorrow!
