Music research using subjects with synaesthesia

Dr Jamie Ward, of the University College London (UCL) Department of Psychology, and others there have been working on music research using human subjects with a rare condition known as synaesthesia. Synaesthesia is is a neurological condition in which two or more bodily senses are coupled (Wikipedia) and manifests itself as, as examples, seeing images when music is played or experiencing a taste when reading a word. Fascinating, isn't it? To find out more on synaesthesia or participate in the research (if you have this condition), see the UCL Psychology site.
