Humour enhancement

Humour enhancement can be described as a general enhancement in the intensity of one's response to humorous or amusing stimuli. During this state, one's sensitivity to finding things funny can be noticeably amplified, this is often to the point that one can begin uncontrollably laughing at trivial things without any discernible reason or apparent cause.

In group settings, the experience of witnessing someone laughing in enjoyment for no apparent reason can itself become a contagious trigger which induces semi-uncontrollable laughter within the people around them. In extreme cases, this can often form a lengthy feedback loop in which people begins to laugh hysterically at the absurdity of not being able to stop laughing.

Increased sense of humor is often accompanied by other coinciding effects such as emotion enhancement and novelty enhancement. It is most commonly induced under the influence of moderate dosages of certain hallucinogenic compounds, such as psychedelics, cannabinoids, and mescaline. However, it can also occur to a much lesser extent under the influence of dissociatives, GABAergic depressants, and stimulants.
