Synaesthesia? A window into perception, thought and language
We investigated grapheme–colour synaesthesia and found that: (1) The induced colours led to perceptual grouping and pop-out, (2) a grapheme rendered invisible through ‘crowding’ or lateral maskingExpand

Projecting sensations to external objects: evidence from skin conductance response
Subjects perceived touch sensations as arising from a table (or a rubber hand) when both the table (or the rubber hand) and their own real hand were repeatedly tapped and stroked in synchrony withExpand

EEG evidence for mirror neuron dysfunction in autism spectrum disorders.
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are largely characterized by deficits in imitation, pragmatic language, theory of mind, and empathy. Previous research has suggested that a dysfunctional mirror neuronExpand

Psychophysical investigations into the neural basis of synaesthesia
We studied two otherwise normal, synaesthetic subjects who 'saw' a specific colour every time they saw a specific number or letter. We conducted four experiments in order to show that this was aExpand

The science of art: A neurological theory of aesthetic experience
art may employ ‘supernormal’ stimuli to excite form areas in the brain more strongly than natural stimuli. Second, we suggest that grouping is a very basic principle. The different extrastriateExpand

Synaesthesia in phantom limbs induced with mirrors
Although there is a vast clinical literature on phantom limbs, there have been no experimental studies on the effects of visual input on phantom sensations. We introduce an inexpensive new device - aExpand

Individual Differences among Grapheme-Color Synesthetes: Brain-Behavior Correlations
Grapheme-color synesthetes experience specific colors associated with specific number or letter characters. To determine the neural locus of this condition, we compared behavioral and fMRI responsesExpand

The use of visual feedback, in particular mirror visual feedback, in restoring brain function.
This article reviews the potential use of visual feedback, focusing on mirror visual feedback, introduced over 15 years ago, for the treatment of many chronic neurological disorders that have longExpand
