Terminology question

Anyone know the term for the inappropriate laughter often seen in alcoholics? I know there is a term, because it was told to me some time ago. However, this nurse is an OLD old-school psych nurse and she said that she hasn't heard the term used in ages.

I always chart "inappropriate laughter" or if the patient is labile, I will chart that. However, I want to know that specific term because I want to use it in a sentence someday. Heh.
