Question by : Neurosurgeons and Med-Students studying Neuroscience: Is lobotomy procedure apart of the curriculum?
The existence of psycho-medications (i.e. Thorazine etc) for the past 60 years has helped with the dramatic decline of this procedure, however I’ve wondered if they still occur, and if so is it apart of the standard curriculum for brain surgery. Do all certified Neurosurgeons/ Neuroscientists know how to perform a lobotomy?

Best answer:

Answer by Scary Hedgehog
psychosurgery is a lot more advanced than the old-style lobotomies, and it does still occur. It’s really rare though – so rare, I’ve never known of one perfomed in 20 years of working in mental health. My partner is a psychiatrist, and he’s never heard of one being done in a hospital he’s worked at either.

I imagine the theory behind the procedure is still taught, but it’s certainly not something that happens regularly.

Best wishes.

Question by /: What are your top book recommendations for studying astrology?
I have only a basic knowledge of astrology and I want to learn more. . . If you could recommend any books (something in-depth and challenging) for someone who is seriously interested in studying astrology what would they be?

– thanks very much!

Best answer:

Answer by Áine Clí
It sounds simple but the first book I would recommend is The Astrologer’s Handbook. This was one of my first “real” astrology books, and I still use it as a reference even after I’ve had a few years under my belt now….

There’s also Astrology Made Easy, which is a invaluable resource.

Both of those go way beyond Sun signs and can be used for reference for years….
