Recently we received the DFF 2 research project grant from the Danish Council for Independent Research, which will support a number of investigations into synesthesia.
The Synesthesia Project have recently received a grant for a three year project on the perceptual effects of synesthesia and how they relate to prior experience, entitled “Synaesthesia – the Roles of Association Learning and of Differential Brain Development“. The project involves three full-time positions including part time involvement from a number of researchers already part of The Synesthesia Project; from Denmark (Thomas Alrik Sørensen (PI), Maria, Nordfang, Morten Storm Overgaard) and Iceland (Árni Gunnar Ásgeirsson). Moreover, the project has a number of international partners which recently was extended to include partners from England, Iceland, USA, China, and Japan. Currently the project is set to begin in the fall of 2016 and run over a three year period (announcement from the Danish Council for Independent Research).
