The Synesthete’s Brain – Danilo’s Pre-Presentation

by

My personal interest in Synesthesia also led me to try and understand how a Synesthete’s brain works. It is interesting how a synesthete perceives the world until they find that what they are experiencing is in fact a neurological condition known as Synesthesia and that they are quite unique. Before knowing that what they have is actually a link connecting different areas of the brain, Synesthetes assume that everyone can see what they see. This inherent self-awareness enclosed on the synesthete’s brain has become one of my sources of inspiration and inquisitiveness. Another source of inspiration comes from the Object-Based Media Group from the MIT Media Lab. The group use cutting-edge technology to explore and understand ways of digital interaction and sensory capabilities.

VS Ramachandran: 3 clues to understanding your brain
“Vilayanur Ramachandran tells us what brain damage can reveal about the connection between cerebral tissue and the mind, using three startling delusions as examples.

Neurologist V.S. Ramachandran looks deep into the brain’s most basic mechanisms. By working with those who have very specific mental disabilities caused by brain injury or stroke, he can map functions of the mind to physical structures of the brain.”
