A Neuroscientist Walked into a Bar...... 23 mars 2014
Par Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
While author Scott Weems is a cognitive neuroscientist, the book is more psychology and sociology than biochemistry. Indeed, aside from some mention of brain anatomy and the neurotransmitter dopamine, no other familiarity of biology is necessary to enjoy this wide-angle treatise. The book allows us to examine what we know or thought we knew about humor. It reminds us how our sense of humor changes as we age, how different ethnic groups regard jokes, how men differ from women in appreciating certain jokes. He analyzes the structure and function of jokes and humor and relates many psychological findings. Merely 200 pages in length plus notes for the more scholarly, the reader is entertained by examples of humor and of recent historical events, as TV's Jeopardy! star Jennings's comments after being defeated by IBM's Watson supercomputer. We learn that rats 'laugh' (not in my laboratory when I had to inject them) and that the sound of dog laughter can calm a kennel. Why some people enjoy horror movies and others don't is explained. Other than some rare anomaly, laughter is indeed a health-inducing process, and this too is described. Political outlook and a sense of humor correlate. (I will leave you do find whether directly or inversely.) Thus, while being amused by the various forms of humor, puns, absurdities, the breaking of taboos, surprises, and clever jokes, the reader will learn about one aspect of consciousness-mind and brain processes that makes life enjoyable. As pointed out, humor is subversive. There are some life lessons here.

The serious need for humor 28 avril 2014
Par Deb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Humor is a funny thing. What makes something funny...or not? What is the purpose of humor anyway? And, how can it improve our health and overall life attitude?

These are three basic questions that cognitive neuroscientist Scott Weems explores in his book. As he explains:
"_Ha!_ is about an idea. The idea is that humor and its most common symptom--laughter--are the by-products of possessing brains which rely on conflict. Because they constantly deal with confusion or ambiguity, our minds jump the gun, make mistakes, and generally get muddled in their own complexity. But this isn't so bad. On the contrary, it provides us adaptability and a constant reason to laugh." (p. xiv)

Although the delivery of the book sometimes gets a bit messy, the punch line is a satisfying one: humor helps us to make sense out of our complex world by providing emotionally satisfying ways to turn conflicts into pleasure.

After all, what's the point of life's absurdities if we can't laugh at them!

The importance of the HA! 22 juin 2014
Par pamela rand - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book on laughter and humor is so much easier to read than Henri Bergson's essays on Laughter. The "Science of When We Laugh and Why is such an important topic and should also be vastly promoted to boomers and seniors since incorporating a regime of laughter into ones daily life is an intricate ingredient to maintaining health and longevity. As a long time believer in this premise, I have created a youtube series entitled Adventures in Staying Young and I will definitely promote Dr. Weems's book as in all possible ways. Thank you, Scott Weems!

Ha ha! 12 juin 2014
Par P. Ikomi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I used "ha ha" as my header for this review because the book gave me some surprising reasons we laugh and why. I found the book quite interesting and at the same time it was a stiff book to comprehend because there were a few descriptions of "real" research in it. The author made it light with the humor he interjected from time to time. The book is worth its weight in gold!
Excellent book on humor 5 avril 2014
Par Buddy Denny - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book was very informative, and you did not have to be a scientist to actually learn a good bit about why or brains tell us to laugh or see humor in certain situations. It had a great "flow" to it, I really liked Dr. Weems writing style because he presented a lot of science/data in a way for everyone to understand and stay entertained. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the science of humor. Great job Dr. Weems!
