“Doorway Effect”

New post on *Mind Hacks* Why you forget what you came for when you enter the roomby tomstafford Forgetting why you entered a room is called the “Doorway Effect”, and it may reveal as much about the strengths of human memory, as it does the weaknesses, says psychologist Tom Stafford. We’ve all done it. Run upstairs to get your keys, but forget that it is them you’re looking for once you get to the bedroom. Open the fridge door and reach for the middle shelf only to realise that we can't remember why we opened the fridge in the first place. Or wait for a moment to interrupt a friend t... mais »

doctors marry doctors

*Nos escolhemos este caminho há mais de sessenta anos e parece que deu certo!...*Should doctors marry doctors? Here are the challenges they face. TANIKA FORESTAL | PHYSICIAN | MARCH 9, 2016 Fifty years ago, it was very uncommon to find doctors married to other doctors. Why? To answer that question, we need to explore the sociology of the time. Fewer women went to college, which meant fewer female doctors. Many couples married early, right out of high school or right after college. If the wife had career aspirations herself, these were often put aside in order to help her husband get t... mais »

All we are is dust in the interstellar wind 03/09/2016 10:54 AM EST [image: cosmic dust] Cosmic dust is not simply something to sweep under the rug and forget about. Instead, National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded astronomers are studying and even mapping it to learn more about what it might be hiding from us, where it comes from and what it's turning into. Some researchers are delving deep down to see how dust comes together at the atomic level, while others are looking at the big picture to see where stars and planets might be forming in dusty stellar ...

Is Empagliflozin a Diabetes 'Game Changer'? Matthew L. Mintz, MD Disclosures | March 02, 2016 Do Prescribing Trends Foretell the Future? When a new version of inhaled insulin was approved less than 2 years ago, it had the potential to become a major component of diabetes treatment. However, given the recent announcement that pharmaceutical giant Sanofi will stop distributing Afrezza® after a year of poor sales, it is unlikely that the product developed by Mannkind will change the diabetes landscape. Another diabetes treatment has received even more fanfare lately, and one must wonder i... mais »

How One Man Saved the ‘@’ Symbol - Alex Fitzpatrick @alexjamesfitz March 7, 2016 Ray Tomlinson died March 5 If there’s a single symbol that represents the Internet Age, it’s the “@” sign. The second it makes its appearance in a string of text, our brains instantly recognize there’s something digital at hand, whether it be an email address, Twitter username or chat handle. But there’s nothing innate about “@” that screams “computer.” In fact, it’s hundreds of years old, provided you believe a researcher who traced it back to 16th century Italian merchants. Then and afterwards, ... mais »
