Is synaesthesia a dominantly female trait?
A large-scale prevalence study is presented which informs ideas on whether the condition is more prevalent in men or women, and re-analyse previous reports of very large female biases to show again that they likely arose from self-referral or other methodological issues.
Validating a standardised test battery for synesthesia: Does the Synesthesia Battery reliably detect synesthesia?
The immune hypothesis of synesthesia
This work proposes an immune hypothesis of synesthesia, which supplements existing models by suggesting how altered connectivity may arise and how associations between synesthesia and other conditions might be explained, and explores the functionality of genes that regulate the types of altered synesthetic cortical connectivity.

The data support previous studies showing superior imagery reports and mental rotation advantages in sequence-space synaesthetes, and suggest that one previous failure to replicate might be explained by individual differences among synaes recruited for testing.

The Sussex Cognitive Styles Questionnaire consolidates research from traditionally disparate areas of cognitive science into a comprehensive cognitive style measure, which can be used in the general population, and special populations.

The SynGenes cohort is presented, the largest genotyped collection of unrelated people with grapheme–colour synaesthesia, and polygenic scores derived from published genome-wide scans of schizophrenia and autism spectrum disorder are investigated.

This is the first large-scale screening of the general population in which grapheme-colour synaesthetes are objectively identified and elicited information from participants about a range of clinical conditions.
