I read with much interest Dr Rowland's book review of The Lobotomist (April, page 70), and I believe one small correction is needed in his excellent piece. Although Dr Almeida Lima was one of the pioneers in performing frontal lobotomies, it was his partner Egas Moniz who shared the 1949 Noble Prize with Walter Hess.
