Throughout history there were many attempts to understand the mind and to derive treatment options based on the presumed causes. This often resulted in many of the controversial and outlandish practices. In this article we have tried to emphasize on some of such practices, some more unusual than other, that have been used in the pre – neuroleptic era. Advancement in the field of science has changed the way we look at psychiatric disorders and brought transformation in the way we treat psychiatric patients.
