  • Your spelling is wrong. But here is a medical article abstract about it: 1: Eur Neurol. 2007;57(2):120-4. Epub 2006 Dec 18. Synaesthesia. Pearce JM. Department of Neurology, Hull Royal Infirmary, Hull, UK. Synaesthesia is the intriguing, involuntary experience of feeling one sensationin response to a different sensory stimulus. Recognised since described in 1890by John Locke and clarified by Galton in the 1880s, it has been analysed in thelast 50 years. Grapheme-colour synaesthesia is the commonest form, but many othersensory linkages are reported. Experiments show that it is a genuine immediateperception, not merely a memory or learned association. Many of the mechanismsposited are based on indirect methods, and we know little of theneurophysiological mechanisms. Copyright 2007 S. Karger AG, Basel. PMID: 17179720 This is not very scientific information, but this person's blog offers a pretty good explanatiom of it: http://nyquister.blogspot.com/
