A Look At Laughter

Are you game for a giggle? We often hear that laughter is the best medicine and indeed hearing or seeing someone else laughing fires up the areas of our brain related to imitation and get us ready to laugh too.

Laughter is universal amongst humans and is even seen in chimpanzees and gorillas – but how much do you really know about it? We’ll investigate why we laugh and hopefully give you plenty of chances to chuckle and chortle.
