Canberra Synesthetes – RESEARCH REQUEST – ANU

Is Friday green and September pink for you?

Synaesthesia is the fascinating condition in which individuals experience unusual cross-modal sensations. Among the most common forms are grapheme-colour and lexical-colour synaesthesia, in which particular letters or words elicit the experience of particular colours. For example, a particular synaesthete might experience the colour green in response to the word ‘Friday’, or see September as pink.

We are conducting research on language and attention processing in synaesthesia at the Australian National University, and are looking for synaesthetes from the Canberra region who would like to participate. The study takes approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes to complete, and includes a computer-based visual attention experiment, and a questionnaire that asks for information about your experiences of synaesthesia. $25 payment is provided in return for your time.

If you would like more information or would like to make a time to participate, please contact Ms Stephanie Kindon:
