Doorway Memory Loss

How many times have you walked into a room and when you got there, you couldn’t remember why? That has happened to me so many times that I was beginning to think that I was losing my memory! Good news for anyone else who has experienced these episodes. Gabriel Radvansky, PhD of Notre Dame published a study in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology. Professor Radvansky states that exiting or entering through a doorway serves as an “event boundary” in our mind which separates episodes of activity and files them away. I apparently have a darn good file system. Have you experienced this and what did you think it was from?
