"Brain Lock" Explained! Can't Post

News:
Walking through doorways causes forgetting, new research shows

"Weve all experienced it: The frustration of entering a room and forgetting what we were going to do. Or get. Or find.

New research from University of Notre Dame Psychology Professor Gabriel Radvansky suggests that passing through doorways is the cause of these memory lapses.

'Entering or exiting through a doorway serves as an event boundary in the mind, which separates episodes of activity and files them away,' Radvansky explains.
