In synaesthesia, an object or symbol has sensory properties that would not normally be associated with it. Here, van Leeuwen and colleagues show that the neural basis for synaesthetic colours is separable from the experience of real colours. This has important implications for our understanding of how and why synaesthesia occurs.
