Research that merits your attention

compiled by B. Vanatian, AIR staff


It is unusual, at least in the public's view, for research and humor to be directly joined. Here are three published reports in which the link is explicit.

1.

"Pathologic Laughter Associated with Paroxetine Treatment," D. Zullino, et al., Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology, vol. 22, no. 2, April 2002, pp. 231.

2.

"Humor as a Cognitive Technique for Increasing Pain Tolerance," M. Weisenberg, et al., Pain, vol. 63, no. 2, November 1995, pp. 207-12.

3.

"Inverse Association Between Sense of Humor and Coronary Heart Disease," A. Clark, et al., International Journal of Cardiology, vol. 80, no. 1, August 2001, pp. 87-8.
