Thebrain is divided into sev-
eral sections, or lobes. Each lobe
has specific functions. The fron-
tal lobe behind the forehead is the
largest lobe of the brain. It is the
seat ofjudgment, reasoningo in-
tellect, and the will. It is the place
of spirituality and morality that
makes up the character of man.
Therefore, a person with a dam-

In the late 1800s psychia-
trists began using a surgical pro-
cedure called a "frontal lo-
botomy" (literally meaning re-
moval of the frontal lobe). Al-
though sometimes a portion of
the lobe was physically removed,
at other times it was "function-
ally" removed by severing its
nerve connections.
The operation initially was
used on people who were vio-
lently or criminally insane. The
practice of frontal lobotomies be-
came increasingly popular in the
1930s and 1940s. However, today
this operation is rdrely used.

Patricia, the Surgical Nurse

Patricia was a very success-
ful surgical ntrse who was pre-
paring for a frontal lobotomy. The

hope was that the surgery would

frl{:i resolve her many guilt problems
that she had struggled with for
several years. Following the pro-
cedure there were striking
changes in her interests, attitude,
work performance, and integrity.
It was obvious that Patricia was
a different person.
Before the lobotomy, Patricia
was dn extremely efficient oper-
ating room nurse. She was also
very fond ofbooks and belonged
to the nruses' literary circle.
After,the lobotomy, she lost
