You are an occupational nurse for a large corporation. Could it be due to her synesthesia?

You tell the manager you have never heard of this condition before but will do some research and get back to her. Once she leaves your office you begin your investigation. At the end of it, you need to prepare a brief (1–2 page) report for the manager explaining the following:

  • What is synesthesia
  • Medically how does it occur (be sure to focus on neuronal and sensory system features here)
  • What are the more common types of synesthesia
  • Could this condition be impacting the employee’s ability to meet deadlines
  • Any types of work projects that could be given to the employee that actually take advantage of her synesthesia
