In synaesthetes, stimulation of one sensory pathway provokes a sensory experience (e.g. a colour concurrent) in a different sensory modality or sub-modality. Results of synaesthetic Stroop and priming tests indicate that the perception of a colour concurrent interferes with the processing of a veridical colour in synaesthetes. We here examined the congruency between a stimulus' colour and the colour concurrent both in grapheme-colour synaesthetes and in non-synaesthetes trained on grapheme… CONTINUE READING
