Evidence now exists that cross-modality matching can occur in sensations in chemical senses, such as odor and taste, which suggests olfaction and gustation might also be constrained by innate biases.
Themes that emerge from these tales of things not taught in graduate school include trying nontraditional approaches, valuing individual differences and complexity, employing cross-modality syntheses and humor and playfulness, and not imitating their styles.
