beingblasphemous asked:

Do you know anything about synesthesia?

psych2go answered:

SynesthesiaĀ is a neurological phenomenon in whichĀ stimulationĀ of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. For example, the sense of smell evokes the sense of sight causing you to see specific objects for specific smell. Another example would be the the sight of certain numbers triggers the sight of certainĀ coloursĀ associated with thoseĀ numbers.Ā
