Synesthesia TED talk

Posted on | September 25, 2011 | 1 Comment

Well, the talk is not just about synesthesia (starts on 17th minute), but it was very interesting anyway.

Basically, it appears that we can mix any kind of senses together and it’s quite normal.

Maybe, it is the mechanism of how we, humans, can come up with unique ideas all the time.

    I must admit that I haven’t watched the clip yet.
    But the highlight is the host’s name Vilayanur Ramachandran, sounds as if he would also be a well skilled kwik-e mart vendor, sorry for OT.
