Synaesthesia is characterised by idiosyncratic ectopic sensations which commonly take the form of coloured visual impressions evoked by touch or hearing. We studied six late-blind individuals who have retained synaesthetic colour perception. Four of them had been without any form of genuine colour vision for more than 10 years. All perceived colours when they heard or thought about letters, numbers, and time-related words (days of the week and months of the year). One experienced synaesthetic… Expand
