Researcher Examines Humor

Macomb, IL – WIU Communication Professor Nathan Miczo spent the last year researching humor and its links to one's sense of security. He outlined some of his findings in the 13th annual Thompson lecture on the campus. He became curious about laughter while doing research as an undergraduate. His research shows there is a high correlation between a person's ability to be creative and a person's ability and willingness to play.
