Scientific research by Charles Brenner and Jeffrey Zacks has observed that walking through doorways interferes with memory and facilitates forgetting.

More specifically, their “doorway effect” is a theory based on the fact that retaining a memory is more difficult after literally walking through an actual doorway (to another room, the outside, the other lecture hall, in or out the church, a stage door etc). It appears that memory works better when remaining in the room in which it originally captured the information — in real locations (like a piano practice room, the university, a museum, a shopping center, the green room etc.), as well as in virtual reality simulations (like an Avatar program at DARPA; or Skyrim, the Sims or Destiny on PSX) — and that one loses some of the information when walking out of the room. It’s called the “encoding specificity” principle and suggests that memory organizes information in a “location based” way. Full story.
