An extraordinary sensory condition in which a person sees,touches , feels a thing together or in an intermingling of sensory impressions is called synesthesia.For example guitar music brushes softly against the synesthete’s face.Letters and numbers are seen in brilliant hues.The  good tastes of foodstuff appear in brilliant colours.

Synesthesia means to perceive together.The condition is a purely a biological pheneomenon as distinct from a psychiatric one.Modern brain imagaing and molecular genetic tools may eventually  uncover the mechanism behind the phenomenon.
