I need to customize \listoffigures

My thesis advisor demands that the list of figures must show only one sentence/phrase per figure. At the same time he demands long captions that completely describes the figure and sometimes how to derive the figure or replicate the experiment.

How do I tell LaTex to take only the first sentence of each figure caption for the list of figures?

right now I'm doing this manually. I use Word to create the list of figures. Print it out and attach to the thesis. The LaTex document holds a blank page or two for the list of tables and figures. This makes the page numbers match.
