I am not sure of this point's relevance to this article, but I think readers might find it interesting and even useful.

How many time have you walked purposefully into a room, only to wonder why you have gone there? Usually, once you relax a bit (or you retrace your steps), the reason will come to you.


But consider this: your motor body did not forget where to go!

What I have observed is that motor or motion memory ages little or not at all. Conceptional or notion memory, on the other hand, ages badly.

"Take" is notional, "grasp" in notional; "give" is notional, "hand over" is "motional". So if you want to remember something, turn the NOTION INTO MOTION (planned bodily movements).
