Great Resources for Synesthesia Researchers

We’ve received lots of inquiries about where find more information about synesthesia. Below is a list of some interesting books and websites to look at. You will see that many of the books are written by authors that have spent a lot of their careers studying synesthesia. The Robertson and Sagiv book, Synesthesia: Perspectives from Cognitive Neuroscience, is perhaps the best academic source of current disputes in synesthesia research. We also included a few associations and Facebook groups dedicated to the study of synesthesia. As a bonus, check out the World Access for the Blind website. Founded by human echolocator Daniel Kish, the non-profit organization teaches the blind how to see the world based on sounds in the environment.
