ON THE SOURCE OF SYNESTHESIA PHYSIOLOGICAL AND FUNCTIONAL BASE

Synesthesia occurs when stimulation of one sensory modality triggers an experience of a few sensory modalities. The most frequent form of synesthesia is colored- hearing, which occcurs when sound induction causes color vision. A psychological base of synesthesia has been an examination using modern brain imagination techniques during synesthesia experience. The results of these tests is to ascertain real synesthesia occuring, although there are divergent results of sensory integration in synesthesia. Possible mechanisms of synesthesia origination are considered upon the current knowledge base of human mind processing. Neonatal Synesthesia hypothesis can have fundamental input in contributing to the development knowledge of general synesthesia as well as in the field of neurobiology and developmental psychology. Synesthesia seems to be an important component in the understanding of human mind functioning rules.
