Synaesthesia: The Prevalence of Atypical Cross-Modal Experiences
Sensory and cognitive mechanisms allow stimuli to be perceived with properties relating to sight, sound, touch, etc, and ensure, for example, that visual properties are perceived as visualExpand

Non-random associations of graphemes to colours in synaesthetic and non-synaesthetic populations
This study shows that biases exist in the associations of letters with colours across individuals both with and without grapheme-colour synaesthesia. A group of grapheme-colour synaesthetes wereExpand

Mirror-touch synesthesia is linked with empathy
Watching another person being touched activates a similar neural circuit to actual touch and, for some people with 'mirror-touch' synesthesia, can produce a felt tactile sensation on their own body.Expand

Prevalence, characteristics and a neurocognitive model of mirror-touch synaesthesia
In so-called ‘mirror-touch synaesthesia’, observing touch to another person induces a subjective tactile sensation on the synaesthete’s own body. It has been suggested that this type of synaesthesiaExpand

Searching for Shereshevskii: What is superior about the memory of synaesthetes?
Some individuals with superior memory, such as the mnemonist Shereshevskii (Luria, 1968), are known to have synaesthesia. However, the extent to which superior memory is a general characteristic ofExpand

DNA Tests in Prolific Sheep from Eight Countries Provide New Evidence on Origin of the Booroola (FecB) Mutation1
Abstract Recent discoveries that high prolificacy in sheep carrying the Booroola gene (FecB) is the result of a mutation in the BMPIB receptor and high prolificacy in Inverdale sheep (FecXI) is theExpand

Visual experiences in the blind induced by an auditory sensory substitution device
In this report, the phenomenology of two blind users of a sensory substitution device - "The vOICe" - that converts visual images to auditory signals is described. The users both report detailedExpand

Disruption of synaesthesia following TMS of the right posterior parietal cortex
This study examines the role of four regions of the parietal lobe in grapheme-colour synaesthesia. TMS applied over a right parieto-occipital region disrupts performance on a synaesthetic primingExpand
