Good to know 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 is 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 door!
Whew! Thank God for that!
