Explain what synesthesia is, its causes and symptoms from a peer-reviewed article.

Assignment Question

Use only peer-reviewed sources. The brain receives input from the world around us through our senses. Sometimes, the “wiring gets crossed” and conditions such as synesthesia occur.

1) Explain what synesthesia is, its causes and symptoms from a peer-reviewed article. Sometimes, when a brain part or one of the senses are not working properly, the brain “re-wires” its circuits and enhances the sensitivity of other areas or senses to compensate. Sometimes this results in individuals having genius-like abilities who are severely impaired in other areas.

2) Give two examples and explain how the brain accomplishes it biologically. Organize answers by number.
