Bookin' It

So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

Aaah….That Explains It!

TheDoor112

Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was? Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.  Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what’s known as an Event Boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next!  Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale.  Who knew?

Thank goodness for studies like this.  It’s not our age.  It’s that damn door!

Ummm…did I post about this already?

(NOTE: Received this in an email from a friend.  Have no idea where it came from, but it was too good not to share! Enjoy!)

  2. Who are you, really…and why are you asking me these questions? (I feel like that all the time, seems like!) Wandering off now, trying to remember what I sat down here for in the first place………….

  4. I’m guessing this phenomenon is why if you turn around and go back, you can sometimes remember what you were going after. Tell your DH if he’s losing his mind due to Event Boundaries, he’s got plenty of company. Happens to me all the time, and always has. Even when I was younger and much sharper. Now we don’t have to worry about it any more!
