van Leeuwen, Tessa M.; Petersson, Karl Magnus; Hagoort, Peter;

<sec> <title>Background</title> <p>In synaesthesia, sensations in a particular modality cause additional experiences in a second, unstimulated modality (e.g., letters elicit colour). Understanding how synaesthesia is mediated in the brain can help to understand normal p... View more
