A new study recognizes specific chromosomal regions linked to auditory visual synaesthesia, a neurological condition characterized by seeing colors in response to sounds. Synaesthesia impacts less than 1 percent of the population. It occurs when stimulation of one sensory pathway results in experiences in another pathway, like if someone were to hear a sound and then see colors. Researchers used a sophisticated genome-wide screen to search for genes that could be linked to auditory-visual...

Synesthetes are individuals in whom one sense triggers another. Their senses are connected, so as well as seeing a painting such as "Composition VIII, 1923" by the Russian painter, the work also triggers sounds. "What Kandinsky wanted to do was for it to appeal to hearing as well," Dr...
