What is Multiple Sensory Synesthesia?

  • Multiple Sensory Synesthesia: Synesthesia is a relatively common perceptual anomaly where a stimulus of one of the senses (e.g. hearing) results in an experience or sensation in another sensory modality or an unusual perception in the same sensory modality. Multiple sensory synesthesia is when sensations are experienced in three or more modalities when a stimulus is received in only one modality e.g. a bright light may trigger experiences of pain and sound.
