Neural sarcasm detection mechanism

I was reading an article in the Times last night which I found rather interesting. Neurologists have apparently located the part of the brain which detects sarcasm. They believe that it is in the right temperofrontal lobe, where they also believe there is a social surroundings detector of some sorts. Give the article a read it's worth your time. Also, play the video they used to test for sarcasm detectors, it is quite a hoot.
