There is no bladder or bowel incontinence. He was diagnosed with hypertension 10 years ago, which is well controlled on Losartan alone. His medical and drug history is otherwise unremarkable. He does not smoke but drinks socially. He lives alone and is fully independent with normal mobility and activities of daily living. He is right-handed. A full panel of bloodwork is sent for, with results pending. Capillary glucose levels are normal.
