my question isn’t “why do people live in Gotham” my question is “why do people who live in Gotham habitually buy recreational drugs from a known serial killer who wears a potato sack over his face”

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

Anyone wanna do a fill in the blank? My life as _______ #waitwhat #kidstoys #wheelchair #lol #walmart #toysection

representation is important. this toy is important. the people who play with them are important.

People have no idea how much having medical stuff for my dolls helped me when I was younger. I have two doll wheelchairs, a Build-A-Bear “get well” set, a bald 18” ‘Sew Able’ doll (at one point between the hair thinning, scalp pain, and inability to lift my arms to care for my hair, my hair had to be cut to 1-2 inches long, and having that doll helped so much), a couple sets of Build-A-Bear scrubs, and my dolls and bears had germ masks. When I started aquatic therapy, my Sew Able doll got a swimsuit, too. She wore long sleeves to protect from the sun, just like me. Representation means so much to kids and the adults they will become.

Here are my favorite sources for inclusive dolls and bears:

  • Here’s a link to Sew Dolling’s "Sew Able" dolls and physical therapy and mobility equipment. They come with/without hair, with/without prosthesis, etc., and they are the same price (and better quality, IMHO) as American Girl dolls! They have a boy doll, as well!
  • Here's some Build-A-Bear stuff, too.
  • Here's a couple 18” doll outfits from Emily Rose (less $$ than AG, better quality and customer service, IMHO).
  • American Girl dolls can now come with/without hair and with/without hearing aids (however, they don’t come with wigs like the Sew Able dolls). Casts, crutches, and wheelchairs are also for sale.
  • Feel free to add more!
