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:

I will be speaking at this event,
A notice from the AFFINITY GROUP IN NZ.
In conjunction with International Brain Awareness Week (March 16-23), we’re proud to announce See What I’m Saying? – An exploration of science, creativity and the senses.
We’re inviting you to be part of an evening of interactive experiences and installations as we join with synesthetes, artists and intellectuals to creatively explore synesthesia.
For those creatively inclined, we would love you to express your synesthetic experience in a medium you are comfortable with. If you would like to talk or write about your experience, we would love to share it with the people of New Zealand. If you would just like to join us on the evening, let us know. The aim is to create discussion and awareness around synesthesia in NZ.
See what I’m saying?
