Humor operates through a variety of techniques, which first generate surprise and then amusement and laughter once the unexpected incongruity is resolved. As different types of jokes use different techniques, the corresponding humor processes also differ. Three types of verbal jokes, bridging-inference jokes BJs , exaggeration jokes EJs , and ambiguity jokes AJs , were used as stimuli. Women also showed greater activation than men in the frontal-mesolimbic network associated with EJs, including the anterior frontopolar prefrontal cortex aPFC, BA 10 for executive control processes, and the amygdala and midbrain for reward anticipation and salience processes.

Sex of subject and gender identity as factors in humor appreciation

Neural Correlates of Sex/Gender Differences in Humor Processing for Different Joke Types

Objective HUMOR was established as an international interdisciplinary forum for the publication of high-quality research papers on humor as an important and universal human faculty. Humor research draws upon a wide range of academic disciplines including anthropology, biology, cultural studies, computer science, education, communication, film and media studies, gender studies, history, linguistics, literature, mathematics, health and medicine, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology. At the same time, humor research often sheds light on the basic concepts, ideas, and methods of many of these disciplines. EN English Deutsch. Your documents are now available to view.

Sex differences in humor processing: An event-related potential study

Humor operates through a variety of techniques, which first generate surprise and then amusement and laughter once the unexpected incongruity is resolved. As different types of jokes use different techniques, the corresponding humor processes also differ.
Numerous behavioral studies and a handful of functional neuroimaging studies have reported sex differences in humor. However, no study to date has examined differences in the time-course of brain activity during multistage humor processing between the sexes. The purpose of this study was to compare real-time dynamics related to humor processing between women and men, with reference to a proposed three-stage model involving incongruity detection, incongruity resolution, and elaboration stages.
