Professor Sophie Scott’s LaughterLab at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience in the UK does neuroscience research on why and how people laugh.

In a project at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2012 and the Big Bang Fair 2013, at an exhibit they simply asked people to write down, “What makes you laugh?” In this short, fun video, they share the answers they collected.
