Abstract

This article discusses the spatial vs. visual dimensions of sequence space synesthesia (SSS). Authors have suggested that characterizing SSS in terms of its orthogonal spatial vs. visual properties may capture some of the ways in which this experience varies between individuals. Authors have also speculated that failure to make this type of distinction between individual synesthetes may contribute to widely differing prevalence estimates and to divergent claims about the visuospatial skills associated with SSS. Further defining and refining empirical methods for classifying participants along spatial and visual dimensions would provide a helpful way to screen participants in future studies addressing the prevalence, behavioral correlates and neurocognitive basis of this condition.
