Brain-behavior-computation-cognition: Convergent methods to understanding the human mind View all 9 Articles. Humor operates through a variety of techniques, which first generate surprise and then amusement and laughter once the unexpected incongruity is resolved. As different types of jokes use different techniques, the corresponding humor processes also differ. Three types of verbal jokes, bridging-inference jokes BJs , exaggeration jokes EJs , and ambiguity jokes AJs , were used as stimuli. Women also showed greater activation than men in the frontal-mesolimbic network associated with EJs, including the anterior frontopolar prefrontal cortex aPFC, BA 10 for executive control processes, and the amygdala and midbrain for reward anticipation and salience processes. Conversely, AJs elicited greater activation in men than women in the frontal-paralimbic network , including the dorsal prefrontal cortex dPFC and parahippocampal gyrus. All joke types elicited greater activation in the aPFC of women than of men, whereas men showed greater activation than women in the dPFC.
