Recently, a great article has been published in Mosaic Science – a journal run by the Wellcome Trust, on how one can recover from temporary blindness, and experience the extraordinary effects of synaesthesia. Check out the story written by PatientH64, and find out who she is. As part of gathering background information to the article, Dr Giles Hamilton-Fletcher – a researcher at the University of Sussex Synaesthesia research team – and Daniel (Grapheel) provided their insights on sensory substitution, neuroscience, blindness, and grapheme-colour synaesthesia. Did you know? Daniel, despite being blind, renders colours to letters and symbols while doing mental maths and equations on his cognitive blackboard.
