UK Synaesthesia Association

The UK Synaesthesia Association was originally founded by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Professor of Developmental Psychopathology at Cambridge University and a leading researcher into synaesthesia. The Association brings scientists, researchers, students and synaesthetes together and provides verifiable and reliable information regarding the condition for the media and any other interested parties. The UKSA operates as a non-profit making organisation and has an open membership scheme. The Association produces an entertaining and informative quarterly newsletter for its members and also holds an annual international conference with eminent guest speakers including scientists, researchers and synaesthetes themselves.
