What is happening when we laugh?
« on: 21/07/2012 00:30:49 »
What is going on when we laugh? Why do we laugh? And why that sound - perhaps an impossible question. It doesn't seem to be learned      originally since babies do it when physically tickled. And yet it is culturally sensitive so it is learned at the more complex levels. Some people never learn . . . The response to laughter is also interesting in terms of how people take the laughter of others. Why is some laughter offensive?
