The ten people in one million who are synesthetes are born into a world where one sensation (such as sound) conjures up one or more others (such as taste or color). Extensive experiments with more than 40 synesthetes led Richard Cytowic to an explanation of synesthesia and reveals the brain to be an active explorer, not just a passive receiver--a fascinating breakthrough in our understanding of what it means to be human. 15 illustrations.
