Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, the activity for rewarding stimuli in both the nucleus accumbens and medial orbitofrontal cortex was greatest when the stimuli were unpredictableG. S. Berns; Samuel M. McClure; G. Pagnoni; P. R. Montague. Predictability modulates human brain response to reward. Journal of Neuroscience 21(8):2793-8, 2001. PMID: 11306631. WOBIB: 107.
Here we demonstrate that humor modulates activity in several cortical regions, and we present new evidence that humor engages a network of subcortical regions including the nucleus accumbens, a key component of the mesolimbic dopaminergic reward systemDean Mobbs; Michael D.
