Find yourself forgetting why you got up from the couch and went into the kitchen?  Don't get angry at yourself for forgetting, rather be thankful your brain is working properly!  Your brain is meant to forget stuff and knowing when to forgetting stuff might be as important as remembering it in the first place, say researchers studying the effects of memory loss.  While we may consider forgetting why we went into a room frustrating, the mind is designed to forget things it deems not useful. ‘It’s important that the brain forgets irrelevant details and instead focuses on the stuff that’s going to help make decisions in the real world’ says study co-author Paul Frankland of the University of Toronto. So relax, if it was important enough for you to seek out a reasons for you leaving the couch for the kitchen, your mind will recall it eventually!
