Curious behavior : yawning, laughing, hiccupping, and beyond by Robert R Provine( )

25 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 2,504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Provine boldly goes where other scientists seldom tread--in search of hiccups, coughs, yawns, sneezes, and other lowly, undignified human behaviors. Upon investigation, these instinctive acts bear the imprint of our evolutionary origins and can be uniquely valuable tools for understanding how the human brain works and what makes us different from other species."--Back jacket
Laughter : a scientific investigation by Robert R Provine( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 1,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether overheard in a crowded restaurant, as punctuation to the intimate conversation of lovers, or as the noisy guffaws on a TV laugh track, laughter is a fundamental part of the texture of everyday life. It is so fundamental, in fact, that we tend to forget how strange - and how important - it is. Yet while laughter is one of the most common human behaviors, it has, until recently, escaped the scientific scrutiny that has dissected every other aspect of our characters." "For the past ten years, however, Dr. Robert Provine, professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, has studied this complex and often puzzling phenomenon, and through his research has established himself as the world's leading expert on laughing. In Laughter he presents an erudite, wide-ranging, witty, and long-overdue exploration of a frequently surprising subject."--BOOK JACKET

"Quand avonc-nous commencé à rire? Les humains sont-ils seuls à rire? Aujourd'hui, nous savons que les orangs outans, les bonobos ou les chimpanzés apprécient comme nous une bonne rigolade, notamment quand on les chatouille! Quelles sont les dernières découvertes sur les origines neuronales et éthologiques du rire? Notre film, un documentaire de 52 minutes tombe à pic pour nous dire les raisons et les mécanismes du rire, une approche scientifique et comportementale à propos de cette étrange secousse. Vous allez sans doute en rire, mais pas seulement comme vous l'attendez."--Conteneur
