    Dr McGettigan's findings confirm previous research from scientists at the University of Tuebingen in Germany who investigated the 'laughter perception network' of the brain.

     

    Lead researcher Dr Dirk Wildgruber found that parts of our brains sensitive to processing high-level, social information reacted most to 'joyous' and 'taunting' laughter.

     

    Wildgruber's study said this is proof the brain is able to recognise the difference between types of laughter, and whether we're being laughed at, or laughed with.

     

    Yet, regions of our brain that are more sensitive to picking up and registering more complex sounds reacted most to 'tickling' laughter.
