Scientists studying brain based learning say that humour stimulates both the left and right sides of the brain. The "right brain" connects the memory to the pleasurable moment of laughter. The "left" brain ties the subject content to a memorable emotional moment.
What this means is that we understand the message better and remember it longer when information is accompanied by humour and fun. Learning and teaching in this way also reduces stress and decreases negative neurotransmitters like cortisol that block learning.
