The Science of Laughter with Dr. Scott Weems

Description:
Scott Weems, adjunct research scientist at the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Study of Language (CASL), is receiving rave reviews for his new book, Ha!: The Science of When We Laugh and Why. Weems, a cognitive neuroscientist, investigates the science of humor and what happens in our brains when we laugh.
