Synaesthetes have enhanced memory for images of everyday scenes

according to this:
Jamie Ward Enhanced Memory in Synaesthesia: What’s the story so far? American Synesthesia Association, Upcoming Conference Abstracts, June 1, 2013. http://www.synesthesia.info/upcoming.html

This is interesting to me because I am a synaesthete who has many different types of synaesthesia including types in which images of scenes are either inducers or concurrents, and there is much evidence that the visual processing of faces and scenes are done in the same or adjacent parts of the brain, and I’m also a super-recognizer, meaning that I consistently get perfect scores in tests of face memory. So it makes sense that synaesthetes in general should be pretty smart at remembering images of scenes, in fact you could say that the content of this blog has predicted this finding.
