Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was?
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 state for the now locale.
Thank goodness for studies like this. It’s not our age, it’s that damn doorway!
