Lili's tip for the day

I think Tomas would be most interested in some of the info within the chapter about synesthesia in the terrific new book by BBC radio journalist and synaesthete Claudia Hammond, titled Time warped: unlocking the mysteries of time perception

Thanks for the tip!

Hammond is a synaesthete and has also done informal research on time-space synaesthesia inher job as radio science journo, so she writes with great authority. She briefly presents an argument plus evidence that time-space syn can be used as an aid to memorizing, including memorizing stuff that isn't related to time. This is completely consistent with research by Simner et al published in 2009. So syn could certainly be a natural advantage to mnemonists. See page 122.

Well, actually Simner's paper was about time-related memorizing - autobiographical memory.
