This Academy Colloquium will bring together leading experts from neurobiology, cognitive psychology, and genetics to critically evaluate the known aspects of synaesthesia and debate the scientific questions that can be answered by studying this intriguing phenomenon. Synaesthesia is a rare human neurodevelopmental trait characterised by cross-modal sensory experiences such as perceptions of visual images triggered by sounds, or tastes elicited by spoken words.
Preceding the international Academy Colloquium a Master Class for young researchers, PhD-students and research master students in Neurobiology of Synaesthesia is organised. Master Class attendees are cordially invited to submit an abstract (300 words) for a 10-minute presentation of their research.
