Humor/laughter can help to strengthen the immune system, aid memory, help prevent illness and disease, and anesthetize the body. (Pease, Barbara and Allan. Why Men Don’t Have a Clue and Women Always Need More Shoes. p 60-62. NY: Broadway Books, 2004.)

Males try harder to be funny than women do. Females may not be trained to be funny. Study involving group therapy sessions: men were five times more likely to be funny as compared to women. (Stump, Jane Barr, PhD. What’s the Difference? p. 82. NY: William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1985.)

Brain scans: men laugh more at things that stimulate the right hemisphere; women laugh more at things that stimulate the left hemisphere. (Pease, Barbara and Allan. Why Men Don’t Have a Clue and Women Always Need More Shoes. p. 58-60. NY: Broadway Books, 2004.)

fMRI study cartoons: Females activated the left prefrontal cortex more than males, suggesting a greater degree of executive processing and language-based decoding; exhibited greater activation of mesolimbic regions, including the nucleus accumbens, implying greater reward network response and possibly less reward expectation. These results indicate sex-specific differences in neural response to humor. (Azim, Eiman, et al. Sex differences in brain activation elicited by humor. Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA 94305-5719.)

Men and women differ distinctly in their use an appreciation of humor. Self-ridicule (subjective reality) is the basis of most humor used by women and may be one of the most significant differences between how men and women use humor. (Tanenbaum, Joe. Male & Female Realities. p 152-154. NV: Robert Erdmann Publishing, 1990.)

Males and females do not laugh at the same things and becomes upset by different things. (Moir, Anne, and David Jessel. Brain Sex. p. 172. NY: Carol Publishing Group, 1989, 1991.)

Woman who can interact easily with the aggressive humor of men in business are a step ahead of woman who negatively interprets these interactions. (Tanenbaum, Joe. Male & Female Realities. p 152-154. NV: Robert Erdmann Publishing, 1990.)
