I'm a perceptual scientist by trade and training, and I think that the prevalence and significance of synesthesia are generally overblown. Most of the phenomena that people attribute to synesthesia can in fact be more simply explained via simple association learning.

This is absolutely false, humans have hundreds of different olfactory receptors; orders of magnitude more distinct receptor types than we have for any other sense.
Thank you.
