Six young female subjects watched a 90-minmovie program on TV screen starting 3.5hours before retiring at 23:00. Comical videoprograms caused significantly long durationof pleasant laughter (1930 sec) as against edu-cational ones (56 sec). The laughter induceddynamic fluctuations of rectal temperatureand blood pressure during and after videowatching. Rectal temperature at post-laughternights remained higher than that at controlnights.
