Three Stories Concerning Synaesthesia A commentary on Ramachandran and Hubbard
Abstract:The article on synaesthesia by Ramachandran and Hubbard (2001; henceforth, R&H) is comprehensive and intellectually stimulating. In this commentary, I would like to present some empirical data not discussed in R&H and to raise some theoretical questions relating to ideas proposed in this article. My comments will be divided into three sections, or - rather - three stories, which correspond to three, independent and different, occasions in my career in which I found myself dealing with synaesthesia. Each of these stories carries a moral that adds to the picture of synaesthesia drawn in R&H.
