Recording laughter on all continents

 

Laughter is one universal lauguage.

Like dialects there are a lot of personel and cultural differences! interesting !

So far the research of the LaughterLab focused on collecting full belly laughs in four world continents _Africa, Asia, South America and Europe_ to identify simularities and cultural variations in laughter.

Australia and New Zealand have yet to be explored
