Humorous Stimuli and Depression: An Examination of Beck's Premise.
Scogin, Forrest R.; Merbaum, Michael
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v39 n2 p165-69 Mar 1983
Studied the relationship between depression and humor in 85 college students who took the Beck Depression Inventory and then rated 10 cartoons. Results showed no difference between mildly depressed and nondepressed subjects. However, some trends were noted on a mood scale related to immediate feelings and humor preference. (Author/JAC)
