What Happens When You Hear What You Smell

Synesthesia is a neurological experience where your sensory perception becomes scrambled and one sensory experience becomes confused with another. So those who suffer from it may “see” sound or “hear” smell.  “There are several different types of synesthesia; some people describe seeing colors when they listen to sounds, or tasting words when they speak. Although strange, it’s hardly a handicap. Many creative people have synesthesia and use it to their advantage, including singer/songwriters Tori Amos and Billy Joel.”
