Answers may vary, but should contain the following for full credit:
A lobotomy severs all connections between the frontal lobe and the rest of the brain. It was used at one time in the treatment of many forms of severe mental illness, although the side effects were disastrous. Bilateral anterior capsulotomy involves disconnecting circuitry in the orbitofrontal cortex, which is a much more targeted approach compared to lobotomy. Bilateral anterior capsulotomy is used primarily in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
