Increased cross-talk between regions specialized for different functions may account for the many types of synesthesia.
For example, the additive experience of seeing color when looking at graphemes might be due to cross-activation of the grapheme-recognition area and the color area called V4 see figure.
However, if normal feedback were not inhibited as usual, then signals feeding back from late stages of multi-sensory processing might influence earlier stages such that tones could activate vision. Cytowic and Eagleman find support for the disinhibition idea in the so-called acquired forms  of synesthesia that occur in non-synesthetes under certain conditions: They also note that it can likewise occur during stages of meditationdeep concentration, sensory deprivationor with use of psychedelics such as LSD or mescalineand even, in some cases, marijuana.
According to this account, synesthesia is a phenomenon mediated by the extraction of the meaning of the inducing stimulus. Thus, synesthesia may be fundamentally a semantic phenomenon. Therefore, to understand neural mechanisms of synesthesia the mechanisms of semantics and the extraction of meaning need to be understood better.
This is a non-trivial issue because it is not only a question of a location in the brain at which meaning is "processed" but pertains also to the question of understanding —epitomized in e.
Thus, the question of the neural basis of synesthesia is deeply entrenched into the general mind—body problem and the problem of the explanatory gap.
Genetics of synesthesia The genetic mechanism of synesthesia has long been debated. Due to the prevalence of synesthesia among the first-degree relatives of synesthetes,  there is evidence that synesthesia might have a genetic basis, however the monozygotic twins case studies indicate there is an epigenetic component.
Synesthesia might also be a oligogenic condition, with Locus heterogeneitymultiple forms of inheritance including Mendelian in some casesand continuous variation in gene expression. It has been found that women have a higher chance of developing Synesthesia, and in the UK females are 8 times more likely to have it reasons are unknown.
When people are left handed it is inherited, and researchers have discovered that synesthetes have a stronger possibility of being left handed than the general population.
Neuroscience Diagnostic criteria[ edit ] Although often termed a "neurological condition," synesthesia is not listed in either the DSM-IV or the ICD since it most often does not interfere with normal daily functioning.
Reaction times for answers that are congruent with a synesthete's automatic colors are shorter than those whose answers are incongruent. Each common type has a specific test. The person is shown a picture that includes black letters and numbers. A synesthete will associate the letters and numbers with a specific color.
An Auditory test is another way to test for Synesthesia. A sound is turned on and one will either identity it with a taste, or envision shapes. The audio test correlates with Chromesthesia sounds with colors. Since people question whether or not Synesthesia is just tied into memory the "Retest" is given.
One is given a set of objects and is asked to assign colors, tastes, personalities, or more. After a period of time, the same objects are given back to the person and are asked again to do the same job.Compare the Way Poets Present Relationships in 'The Farmer's Bride' and 'The Manhunt' Compare the way poets present relationships in ‘The Farmer’s Bride’ and ‘The Manhunt’.
