Synaesthesia and the integration of information in the human brain

In this lecture, Associate Professor Rich discusses her research on synaesthesia and the mappings we all have between our senses, giving insights into the way the brain integrates information for conscious perception of the world.

About the speaker

Associate Professor Anina Rich is co-director of the Perception in Action Research Centre (PARC) and heads up the Synaesthesia@Macquarie research group. She is Australia’s leading expert on synaesthesia, with publications on the topic in high profile journals including Nature and Nature Reviews Neuroscience. Her work has made a clear argument for selective attention playing a critical role in synaesthetic binding, analogous to normal binding of object features for conscious perception. Her work has received considerable media attention, and she has won a number of awards, including the 2010 ‘Young Tall Poppy’ award for Science from the Australian Institute of Policy & Science.
