Constructing priors in synesthesia

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/Letter to the editorScientific


A new theoretical framework (PPSMC) applicable
to synesthesia has been proposed, in which the discrepancy
between the perceptual reality of (some) synesthetic
concurrents and their subjective non-veridicality is being
explained. The PPSMC framework stresses the relevance of
the phenomenology of synesthesia for synesthesia research—
and beyond. When describing the emergence and persistence
of synesthetic concurrents under PPSMC, it is proposed that
precise, high-confidence priors are crucial in synesthesia. I
discuss the construction of priors in synesthesia.
