This is your brain on TED MONTEREY, Calif.--If you sense numbers as colors,
or see images when hearing a tone, you might be a poet and don't know it.
Atypical and subjective responses to colors, sounds, numbers and the like are
caused by a neurological condition called synesthesia, a mutation in an area of
the brain that can result in a cross-wiring of hearing, vision and touch

poets. (It affects a small portion of the population.)
