Abstract:

Examines medical treatments for madness from early calming and restraining techniques through shock therapies such as Sakel's insulin shock, Ladislav Meduna's epilepsy-inducing metrizol, and Ugo Cerletti's electroconvulsive therapy. Gall's phrenology and the idea of cerebral localization led to Egas Moniz' technique of lobotomy; while ideas of chemical synapses and neurotransmitters resulted in increased use of psychotropic medication. Patient management and healing are not seen as necessarily complimentary, and deinstitutionalisation from chemotherapies has resulted in "sidewalk psychotics". Interviewed are Max Fink, Sander Gilman, Joseph Wortis, Kenneth Tyler, James Watts, Andrew Scull, Ruth Seifert and Kate Millett.
