Mingling Senses

What does the color blue taste like? Does guitar music smell sweet or spicy? For people with synesthesia, this describes real experiences. We have five senses: touch, sight, taste, sound and smell. Most of us experience our senses one at a time. In synesthesia, one sense can be experienced at the same time as another. For example a person with synesthesia might feel something rough brush against their hand every time they smell a flower. They can also experience the same sense in two ways. Seeing letters or numbers in a specific color, like the letter “A” always being red no matter what color it’s written in. Synesthesia isn’t very common. It sometimes runs in families. This makes researchers think that genes may play a role. They think that people with synesthesia have extra connections between neurons in some area of the brain. Others think that the direction that information flow between brain cells might be different. It’s been shown that people with synesthesia have better memories than people who don’t. For now, synesthesia remains a mystery, but researchers plan to keep studying it.
