Synesthesia as (multimodal) mental imagery
Journal Contribution - Journal Article
It has been repeatedly suggested that synesthesia is intricately connected with unusual ways of exercising one?s mental imagery, although it is not always entirely clear what the exact connection is. My aim is to show that all forms of synesthesia are forms of (often very different kinds of) mental imagery and, further, if we consider synesthesia to be a form of mental imagery, we get significant explanatory benefits, especially concerning less central cases of synesthesia where the inducer is not sensory stimulation.
