Update 9th October 2014: As part of my preparations for the forthcoming launch of The Laughter Research Podcast™ (Late October 2014), I am building a new website, which is pretty much ready to go. It has a fresh new look and it is designed with podcasting and blogging in mind, something which this website template doesn't offer. I'm interviewing a variety of guests, from a variety of fields, such as psychology, comedy, therapy and business, with the goal of building up a number of interviews to have in a buffer before I launch the podcast shortly. Keep an eye on my Twitter Feed and Facebook page for updates. (If you would like to be a guest - contact me via the contact page above.)

Hello and welcome to the Laughter Research website. My name is Glen Duggan and I'm a PhD candidate, currently researching in the School of Psychology, Trinity College, Dublin. (This website is not affiliated with T.C.D.)

This website started life as research tool, designed for dual purposes - to inform people of my research into the psychology of laughter and to seek people's support as participants in my research.

I have since finished my data collection and I'm delighted with the wonderful support I got. A big thank you to everyone who took part. Woo Hoo! I'm no longer using the website for data collection, but rather than just close it down, I've decided to develop the site further. 

I had noticed that despite the original research forum being members only access (out of ethical necessity), that there were a lot of people coming to visit the website and the open access info section of the forum.

Since people are interested in the topic of laughter, I've decided to make a brand spanking new version of the website, which I'll be launching as soon as the transfer of the domain to a new host is complete. The website address isn't going to change, but the content and the look of the site will. I'm really looking forward to the new site, as it is much more interactive and engaging than the current template could allow for.

 All the best to you & I look forward to chatting to you soon.
