Title

The Science of Laughter with Sophie Scott

Summary

If you ask people what makes them laugh, they will tell you they laugh at jokes: however if you look at when they laugh a very different pattern emerges, in which laughter can be seen as an extremely important social emotion. In this Ri event, Sophie Scott explores the science of laughter, from laughter in other animals to the acoustics of laughter, and the ways that laughter is processed in our brains. The science of laughter was presented at the Ri on Friday 28 March 2014. This event is part of our all-women line up for Friday Evening Discourses in 2014 as part of our year long celebration of women in science.
