A lobotomy was a neurosurgical procedure in which the connections to and from the pre-frontal cortex were cut from the brain. A lobotomy usually resulted in a serious loss of cognitive function.
Behind the scenesEdit
During the production of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, it was decided that the talkative character of "Lando's aide" would be muted due to his cybernetic implants lobotomizing him. As a reference to this change, the character was named "Lobot," a corruption of the word "lobotomy."
