The Doorway Effect: Why your brain won’t let you remember what you were doing before you came in here

I work in a lab, and the way our lab is set up, there are two adjacent rooms, connected by both an outer hallway and an inner doorway. I do most of my work on one side, but every time I walk over to the other side to grab a reagent or a box of tips, I completely forget what I was after. This leads to a lot of me standing with one hand on the freezer door and grumbling, “What the hell was I doing?” It got to where all I had to say was “Every damn time” and my labmate would laugh. Finally, when I explained to our new labmate why I was standing next to his bench with a glazed look in my eyes, he was able to shed some light. “Oh, yeah, that’s a well-documented phenomenon,” he said. “Doorways wipe your memory.”

Being the gung-ho new science blogger that I am, I decided to investigate. And it’s true! Well, doorways don’t literally wipe your memory. But they do encourage your brain to dump whatever it was working on before and get ready to do something new. In one study, participants played a video game in which they had to carry an object either across a room or into a new room. Then they were given a quiz. Participants who passed through a doorway had more trouble remembering what they were doing. It didn’t matter if the video game display was made smaller and less immersive, or if the participants performed the same task in an actual room—the results were similar. Returning to the room where they had begun the task didn’t help: even context didn’t serve to jog folks’ memories.

The researchers wrote that their results are consistent with what they call an “event model” of memory. They say the brain keeps some information ready to go at all times, but it can’t hold on to everything. So it takes advantage of what the researchers called an “event boundary,” like a doorway into a new room, to dump the old info and start over. Apparently my brain doesn’t care that my timer has seconds to go—if I have to go into the other room, I’m doing something new, and can’t remember that my previous task was antibody, idiot, you needed antibody.

Read more at Scientific American, or the original study.

I finally learned why I completely space when I cross to the other side of the lab, and that I’m apparently not alone.

this is actually kind of great and it’s nice to know there’s something behind that constant spacing out whenever i enter a different place

FINALLY AN EXPLANATION

This has been bugging me for years, so glad to know there is a reason behind it

10 Notes on Educating

1. “We” — that is, the collective existence of trans people — do not have to do so.

2. When one of us is asked, it is perfectly reasonable for us to say “no”.

3. If you ask nice, we might point you to the people in our community whom we, as individuals, feel do a good job at it.

4. Not all education on trans stuff is of the same value.

5. What one trans person tells you may differ from what another trans person tells you. As a result, they might both be right, both be wrong, or be all manner of right and wrong because trans people are just as subject to encountering bad information about themselves as you are.

6. Most of us were *just* as confused about this as you are. We learned it, you can too. We learned it because we had to. Your not having to does not mean we now have to teach you.

7. People died so that you could ask us to teach you. Really. Try to remember that.

8. The trans community needs money. The people who teach this stuff, often use that money to help other trans people. Asking me to do it for free is telling me that what I know has no value to you. Not really all that encouraging.

9. There are trans charities out there that do this stuff all the time. You could look them up. I can point you to some, if you ask me how you can help trans people, instead of telling me I need to help you, first.

10. You’ve just learned a bunch about trans stuff that you didn’t know before. Now would be a good time to say thank you.

 when you say “nonbinary identities don’t exist BECAUSE SCIENCE”

all you’re telling me is that you don’t know what science is

science is a systematic attempt to describe the world. science does not define the world

if you were to go up to a scientist and say “there are things that exist in the word that science does has not yet adequately described, or described at all” 

the scientist would be like “yeah i know, that’s why i still have a job”
