Barrick, Ann Louise; And Others
Gerontologist, v30 n5 p675-78 Oct 1990
Investigated humor response to aggressive cartoons using ratings of pain and funniness of cartoons by college students (n=93) and older adults (n=61). Found no significant age differences; however, sex differences were found. Females exhibited an inverted-U relationship between pain ratings and funniness ratings. For males there was no relationship between pain and funniness. (Author/ABL)
