Just looking at a version of the Mini-mental State Examination (MMSE),* a simple test used in clinical settings to assess possible cognitive impairment. The following does not bode well for patients' scores.

* Folstein, M.F, Foltein, S.E., McHugh, P.R. (1975) Mini-mental state: a practical method for grading the cognitive state of patients for the clinician. J Psychiatric Research, 12, 189–98.
