The Humor Research Lab (aka HuRL) at the University of Colorado Boulder is dedicated to the scientific study of humor, its antecedents, and its consequences. The lab’s theoretical and methodological base is in the interdisciplinary fields of emotion and judgment and decision making, with an emphasis in social and cognitive psychology. HuRL is directed by Dr. Peter McGraw, Professor of Marketing and Psychology at the University of Colorado Boulder.
