Summary Edit

Possible neural basis for grapheme-color synesthesia. The region of the visual pathway involved in recognizing letters and numbers (graphemes) is indicated in green, while one a region involved in color processing (hV4) is indicated in red. Due to the adjacency of these regions, there is an increased probability of connections being retained, leading to cross-activation between the grapheme area and hV4.
