For many years, scientists who heard approximately synesthesia - listening to shades, tasting phrases, seeing coloured discomfort - simply shrugged their shoulders or rolled their eyes. Now, as irrefutable facts mounts that a few fit brains particularly do that, we're compelled to invite how this squares with a few adored conceptions of neuroscience. those contain binding, modularity, functionalism, blindsight, and awareness. the excellent news is that after previous theoretical buildings fall, new mild might flood in. faraway from an insignificant interest, synesthesia illuminates a large swath of psychological life.

Benchmark interactive tasks during this factor evolving new types of interdisciplinary teamwork comprise The Media condo, led via Metapolis, IaaC and the MIT Media Lab and initiatives conceived on the Interactive Institute, Ivrea, Italy.
