Synesthesia is a neurological occurrence when one sensory experience automatically triggers another sense. It means "to perceive together" in Greek, indicating two senses that are felt simultaneously. There are many synesthesia examples in psychology. For instance, people with synesthesia, or synesthetes, may smell pears when they hear their own name.
These sense combinations and associations can result in higher sense awareness, heightened creativity, and strong memory recall. Though synesthesia is an irregular sensory processing phenomenon, it is not considered a processing disorder.
