An unexpected demographic and cognitive constellation co-occurs with
synesthesia: females and non-right-handers predominate, the trait is
familial, and memory is superior while math and spatial navigation suffer.
Synesthesia appears to be a left-hemisphere function that is not cortical
in the conventional sense. The hippocampus is critical for its experience.
Five clinical features
comprise its diagnosis. Synesthesia is "abnormal" only in being
statistically rare. It is, in fact, a normal brain process that is
prematurely displayed to consciousness in a minority of individuals.
