- synaesthetic configuration
- The term synaesthetic configuration comes from the Greek words sun (together, unified) and aisthanesthai (to notice, to perceive), and from the Latin verb configurare (to adjust, to render a similar form). It is used to denote a type of * synaesthesia which is characterized by colours, spatial patterns, or forms which may be triggered by multiple concepts such as numbers, days of the week, history patterns, etc. The group of synaesthetic configurations includes the *number forms, the * grapheme-colour synaesthesias, and so-called memory maps.ReferencesCytowic, R.E.
