It’s the Door!

Copy of lpcp 832

Received this important information in an email today and thought I would share with you.  If you’re like me, it made me feel a lot better!

IT'S THE DOOR!!

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.
It's not aging, it's the damn door!

Thank goodness for studies like this ..... I was really getting scared!

  9. Seems like I saw a TV show that touched on this. The person kept going in and out of the doors. I think I will try it tomorrow. I believe there is truth in it.
