News of the Weird
by Chuck Shepherd
In a first-person account in London's The Independent in
September, Jenny Gathorne-Hardy reported that she drilled a hole
in her skull (with pain relief only by local anesthetic) to test the
theory that adults' brains would function better if blood were
allowed to circulate to the topmost part, which is made difficult
because of natural fusing at around age 18 to 21. Reported
Gathorne-Hardy, "I feel calmer, and that particular mental
exhaustion I became so used to has gone."
