Hugo Bart Huges (also Hughes; 1934 - 2004) - Bart Huges attended medical school at the University of Amsterdam, but was refused a degree due to his advocacy of marijuana use. In 1964 he published "The Mechanism of Brainbloodvolume ('BBV')" (also known as "Homo Sapiens Correctus"), a scroll in which he proposed to use trepanation (making a hole in the skull) as a means to enhance brain functionality by balancing the proportion of blood and cerebral spinal fluid.Using a foot-operated electric dentist drill, Huges drilled a hole in his own skull on 6 January 1965 to demonstrate the beneficial effects of trepanation. There is doubt whether he actually drilled a hole in his skull or just a superficially penetrated the skin.
