The Laughter Laboratory brings years of laughter research in the School of Psychology at Queen’s University into the open. In this session we will run experiments on the way people perceive laughter in an attempt to demonstrate what is so special and unique about this universal behaviour. We will then do some hard work in groups to explore the highly reliable methods that we have developed over years of research to make laughter happen. The session will finish with a short talk on the nature of laughter, bringing together the aspects that are explored during the interactive parts of the session. Come prepared to laugh and be laughed at.
