Owing to its bizarre nature and its implications for understanding how brains work, synesthesia has recently received a lot of attention in the popular press and motivated a great deal of research and discussion among scientists. The questions generated by these two communities are intriguing. This volume brings together a distinguished group of investigators from diverse backgrounds - among them neuroscientists, novelists, and synesthetes themselves - who provide fascinating answers to these questions. The research presented in this volume demonstrates that it is no longer reasonable to ask whether or not synesthesia is real - we must ask how we can account for it from cognitive, neurobiological, developmental, and evolutionary perspectives.
