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.

Ok so I was watching Atlantis: The Lost Empire (again)…

rivendellbitch:

And I noticed something…

so this is the first time we see the king of Atlantis, right? 

image

Then he says this while his wife is drawn into the heart of Atlantis:

image

Notice how he’s not looking away. The next time we see the king, he is blind.

image

DOES THIS MEAN HE LOOKED INTO THE HEART OF ATLANTIS, RISKED LOSING HIS SIGHT, JUST SO HE COULD SEE HIS WIFE ONE LAST TIME??????

JUST FUCKING STOP RIGHT THERE

CANT STOP WONT STOP

Hey guys!

WOW! It’s been almost 5 months since I first started Agents of the Realm and I felt a bit like doing a look back to one of my favorite sequences in Chapter 1 (also now with the new and shiny cover!). 

Agents of the Realm updates Sundays and Thursdays (with this coming Sunday being the first appearance of the SECOND agent ooOOOOOOOOOOO).

So come along on the ride with me to get to know the 5 girls who’ll be saving the world as (they) know it, share in the struggles of their college years and cheer them on with every fight they come across!

The Comic The Cast The Story 

This project has been SO MUCH FUN to work on and has been teaching me SO much. I really hope y’all are enjoying this as much as I am working on it!

reasons why winter is better than summer:

  • little to no insects (◕‿◕✿) 
  • sweaters all the time (◠△◠✿)
  • the air is nice and fresh smelling (◡‿◡✿)
  • sometimes it snows and you get out of school \(◕‿◕✿)/
  • snow is pretty (´・ω・`)
  • no pollen (▰˘◡˘▰) 
  • it gets darker faster so theres more nighttime and more time to look at the stars (ᅌᴗᅌ* )
  • everything is dead just the way i like it (⊙‿⊙✿)
