The Science of Laughter

Friday 30th December 2011 at 21h55 - ARTE


For how long have we been laughing? Are human beings the only one to laugh?

We know that bonobos, chimpanzees and orangutans also enjoy having a good laugh, especially when tickled. There is even a “tickling machine” at the Institute of neurology in London.
This film is about why and how we laugh, a scientific and behavioral approach about laughter.
