4. Consciousness

- A single case of conceptual synesthesia (in course by Milan). Our studies showed that in a person with synesthesia (but no in the control group), there is cost of shift of mental set between the following two tasks: task 1, to indicate wether a number is odd or even. Task 2, to indicate the colour of the photism of the number (written always in black).

- A single case of blind colour synesthesia.
