I’m new to Guru

I recently co-authored a short article on Jason Padgett, an acquired synesthete and savant, with Berit Brogaard. After sustaining a concussion from a brutal attack, Jason began to see visual imagery associated with mathematical formulas. Our lab’s research found the imagery is generated in the left temporal, parietal and frontal lobes. That’s a surprising result. You can read more about Jason here.

 Synesthesia is a complex condition in which the senses are mixed. In this episode of St. Louis on the Air, I speak with Don Marsh about how synesthesia research might provide insight as to how the brain works.
