When I ran the dementia research ward at Mt. Sinai in NYC a prominent former middleweight (he lost a very tough bout to Sugar Ray Robinson) was refered to us for assessment. Probably had traumatic encephalopathy ("dementia pugilistica" as it's known), problem was that when a fire drill alarm bell went off as it did at least once a day, he'd jump out of his chair thinking it was the start of a round. It would take a minute or two to calm him down.
