Have you ever walked into a room and realized you don't remember what you're doing there?
  Well, thankfully science finally explains why: It's the doorway's fault.
卡壳的记忆碎片
  A new study finds when you go from room to room, your brain identifies each room as a new event and sets a new memory trace to capture the new event.
  Study author Gabriel Radvansky, a psychology professor at the University of Notre Dame, explains doorways are like a chapter marker. They end old episodes and begin new ones. This makes it difficult to retrieve older memories because they've already been filed away.
  He suggests physically carrying a reminder of what your intent is.
  For example, if you want to go from the living room to the kitchen to get a snack, it would be easier to remember if you walked into the kitchen with something to remind yourself of what you wanted, such as a bowl.
  So if you're to fetch a pair of scissors, hold your index and middle fingers in a scissor shape to help the memory stay intact. And when you enter the washroom… well......
  你是否遭遇过这样的情境:当你走进一间房间,却突然不记得你到这来做什么?
  好在科学可以解释这一现象:都是走廊惹的祸。
  一项新研究发现,你从一个房间走到另一房间,大脑认定每个房间为一件新事情,由此建立新的记忆。
  该研究的作者Gabriel Radvansky是圣母大学的心理教授,他解释走廊就像是章节标记,标志着前一章的结束和下一章的开始。所以回忆变得困难,因为记忆已经“归档”了。
  他建议最好带实物提醒自己的意图。
  比如,在卧室的你到厨房拿点零嘴。你可以拿一个碗之类的东西,很容易就记起你到厨房干什么了。
  那么,如果你去拿剪刀,就可以食指中指交叉,比出剪刀的手势,这样就可以帮你想起来啦!如果你要上厕所,那么……
