It's The Door's Fault!

Whew, scientific proof. What a relief to learn this !







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 anEvent 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.









Thank goodness for studies like this.



It's not our age, it's that **** door !

Didn't need a Notre Dame study for that!! I do the same for web pages!! Just going from window to window I get distracted and forget what I was searching for!! So I guess it's doors AND windows!!
