Synaesthetes for a research project
I have a research project, which requires that I work with synaesthetes. If you are a synaesthete, or know someone who is, please contact me, or get them to. I am interested in synaesthetes from everywhere, in the long term, though in my initial project, it would be best if the synaesthete was located in Malaysia or Singapore, for ease of access.
Synaesthesia is a condition in which there is an apparent cross wiring of the senses, in which stimulation of one sense evokes a response in another sense, or mental experience. Examples include graphemic synaesthesia, in which a person sees black letters as coloured; or musical (sound colour) synaesthesia in which music or sounds, produce colours. There are others too, involving all the senses. Curious ones include personality smell synaesthesia, in which different personalities, evoke particular smells, in the bearer of the condition.
Basically, if a sensory stimulation produces any consistent cross modal response, then that would be a variety of synaesthesia.
My first project would involve administering certain tests, from which the synaesthete could learn interesting things about themselves. For later projects, when funded appropriately, there could be financial compensation, though this will not apply to the first project.
Please contact me in the comments below or via email. Thank you.
