That's crazy. Didn't think that could be right, but your clue...

In what year did Egas Moniz of Portugal win the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his development of surgical lobotomy for treatment of mental illness?

 

Go ahead and break it to us so we can get on with our lives...and this thread.  :P

Then I award FJ as the winner.  The correct answer was 1949, so he was really close.

 

Lobotomies were first described in a 1936 publication.  By 1949 they earned the Nobel stamp of approval, and they were being done by the tens of thousands.  By the mid 1960s they were finally identified for what they were: gruesome, horrible butcherings of the brain.
