Visualizing synaesthesia: attention, perception, and crossmodal plasticity
M J Proulx
This symposium provides a cross-cutting snapshot of synaesthesia research, with a focus on its neural origins, its impact on visual attention, and its implications for the development and plasticity of crossmodal processing in normal cognition. The overview talk will provide a basic introduction of research on synaesthesia and crossmodal perception, with the aim of connecting the various research themes within a common framework. A particular focus will be paid to the implications that synaesthesia and crossmodal perception have for visual perception, and for possible visual aids for the blind. The four talks will focus on aspects of synaesthesia research described above, providing an excellent basis for a discussion of particular intersecting areas of research on crossmodal perception and vision.
