The phenomenon of synesthesia likely stems from normal cognitive development in utero and early childhood. Large numbers of neural connections are formed as the brain grows both before and after birth. As the brain differentiates, many of these connections are pruned away. There is speculation that synesthesia may arise from an incomplete shedding of these connections. (Mahony, Melissa. “Finding the Connection,” Scientific American Mind, October/November 2007.)
