Brain Teasers: A Good Laugh

Laughing feels good. Laughing is indeed good in most cases. A good belly laugh amounts to an aerobic exercise as your blood pressure and heart rate increase, your breathing changes and your diaphragm contracts. Laughing has also been shown to boost the immune system and reduce stress.

Laughing is thus good for your brain! Here are two fun ways to take a further look at laughter and the brain :

  • Listen to these laughs and decide whether it is a human or a computer laughing.
  • Try this to find out how much you are stressed. You may be surprised…

Enjoy!
