There is a "reflex" or brain function that is responsible for pregnant woman seeing more pregnant women than usual. Or you buy a BMW and all of a sudden it seems like everyone owns a BMW. There is a name for this heightened focus on your environment where you have a connection... type of car, pregnant, etc. Think it might be in the cerrabellum? Thanks! (PS: It's a two word name...)
