This study investigates the bi-directionality of synaestesic experience by means of a flanked bisection paradigm in TT, a number-colour synaesthete. Previous studies have shown that bisection is shifted towards the larger digit flanker (e.g., Ranzini & Girelli, 2012). TT and controls performed line bisections with lines flanked by black digits (experiment 1), by TT’s photism colours (experiment 2), and by congruently (experiment 3), or incongruently coloured digits (experiment 4). While the results of the control group mainly replicated previous findings, only the colour-digit congruence elicited in TT the larger-digit bias. TT’s absence of effects in the other conditions was not due to reduced sensitivity to luminance effects (experiment 5), or to mathematical expertise (experiment 6). We suggest that grapheme-colour synaesthesia might be characterised by a rigid access to semantic representation when the inducer is task-irrelevant.
