Humor a boost to memory, study shows! By: Valparaiso University

 In this article by Valparaiso, Dr. Keith Carlson researches if humor effects the ability to remember and recall information more efficently. He talks about his opinion and comments on this topic. Dr. Carlson states how humor will only help you remember that topic if it is relativily related to that topic in some way. Dr. Carlson gives examples like in funny advertisements like geico that is humurous and most people tend to remember this. Dr. Carlson is still looking forward to researching more about humor and memory and will soon hope to get a direct legit answer.

Questions/ comments: What tests would we use to determine this?

It is amazing how humor can help with memory.

Ive also realized that the only pictures that i really remember in my head are the ones that have humor. I beleive that humor does help memory.
