To:Whew! What a Relief to Learn This!Ever walked into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what it was?It turns out; doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through adoorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set ofthoughts and memories from the next. Your brain removes the thoughts you had inthe previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale.
Thank goodness for studies like this. It's not our age, it's that Stupid Door!
