Given this demonstration of an induced synaesthesia, we suggest that using posthypnotic suggestion to induce other types of abnormal cross-modal interactions, such as those observed in other synaesthesias or in neurological patients, will shed light on the cognitive and neuronal mechanisms underlying cross-modal interactions and consciousness in the normal brain.
other methods of inducing synesthesia?
what other methods can be used to trigger or induce synesthesia?
