New research shows that a case of the giggles may help reduce the effects of Alzheimer's disease.

A study out of Australia says laughter may be as effective as psychiatric drugs, in reducing the agitation patients often experience.

Researchers say nursing home residents suffering from the disease were less aggressive, after attending therapeutic comedy sessions.
