Word of the day – Deuteranomaly

Colour blindness not all it seems

Specialised cells detect colour differences
Forms of colour blindness may actually give people enhanced perception of some colours, research suggests.

Researchers asked people with a form of colour blindness called deuteranomaly – the most common form of the condition – to assess pairs of colours.

The University of Cambridge team found these people were able to distinguish between pairs that looked identical to those with “normal” colour vision.

The study is published in the journal Current Biology.
