X-men: humans with an unusual interaction between receptor systems who construct a world of new images within themselves (on the 140th anniversary of the birth of Academician P.P. Lazarev)


Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Institutskaya str. 3, Pushchino, Moscow Region, 142290, Russian Federation

Academician Petr Lazarev's scientific and organizational activities are briefly described. He has predicted, first, the law of interaction between various sets of receptors that occurs in solving problems by humans and, second, the existence of a special type of that interaction in which two or more receptor channels are either synchronized or combined into a single channel. The second option is referred to as synesthesia. Half a century later widespread interest to studies of this phenomenon is witnessed.

Now text is available in Russian only.
