The phenomenon of synesthesia has undergone an invigorationof research interest and empirical progress over the past decade. Studies investigating the cognitive mechanisms underlying the condition have yielded insight into neural processes behind such cognitive operations as attention, memory, spatial phenomenologyand cross-modal processes. However, the structural and functional mechanisms underlying synesthesia still remain contentiousand hypothetical. In this chapter, BeritBrogaard, Kristian Marlow, and Kevin Rice critically review recent research on grapheme-color synesthesia, one of the most common forms of the condition, and address the ongoingdebate concerning the role of selective attention in eliciting synesthetic experience.

Keywords:   Cross-modal processes, Functional mechanisms, Grapheme-color synesthesia, Memory, Selective attention, Spatial phenomenology
