Traditional color vision theory posits that three types of retinal photopigments transduce light into a trivariate neural color code, thereby explaining color-matching behaviors. Thisprinciple of trichromacy is in need of reexamination in view of molecular genetics results suggesting that a substantial percentage of women possess more than three classes of retinal photopigments. At issue is the question of whether four-photopigment retinas necessarily yield trichromatic color perception. In the… Expand
Re-assessing perceptual diagnostics for observers with diverse retinal photopigment genotypes
Summary The assessment of color perception in observers with four or more classes of retinal photopigments has often been undertaken with diagnostic tools designed to assess color vision under anExpand

TLDR
This review provides an account of how the linkage between the number of active photopigments and the dimensions of human color vision developed, summarizes the various mechanisms that can impactPhotopigment spectra and number, and provides an across-species survey to examine cases where the photop pigment link to the dimensionality of color vision has been claimed.

Sex and vision II: color appearance of monochromatic lights
TLDR
There are marked sex differences in color vision, and it is hypothesized that testosterone plays a major role, somehow leading to different connectivities for males and females: color appearance requires a re-combination and re-weighting of neuronal inputs from the LGN to the cortex, which, as the authors show, depends on the sex of the participant. Expand
Art, interpersonal comparisons of color experience, and potential tetrachromacy
TLDR
This work empirically investigated color perception in genotyped individuals with a potential for greater than three retinal photopigment classes compared to controls, and investigated both professional artists and non-artist participants using psychophysical designs that employed low-level motion processing of isoluminant color stimuli. Expand
Human Color Vision and Tetrachromacy
TLDR
This Element focuses on new knowledge about the linkages between color vision genetics and color perception variation and the color perception consequences of inheriting alternative, nonnormative, forms of genetic sequence variation. Expand
A Quantitative Theory of Human Color Choices
TLDR
A quantitative model of a lexicographic semiorder type is created, which shows how different perceptual and cognitive influences can trade-off when making color similarity judgments, and concludes that distance in a CIE model is but the first of several layers in a hierarchy of higher-order cognitive influences that shape color triad choices. Expand
Sex-related differences in peripheral human color vision: a color matching study.
TLDR
Female showed substantially less saturation loss than males in the green-yellow region of color space, and it is speculated that this advantage of female over male color vision is conferred by M-cone polymorphism. Expand
Modeling color percepts of dichromats
TLDR
This work presents a model for the processing of photoreceptor signals which, under physiologically plausible assumptions, achieves a trichromat-like representation of dichromatic receptor signals, and introduces a third cone opsin to explain normal, trichromaat hue scaling. Expand
Signatures of selection and gene conversion associated with human color vision variation.
TLDR
Nucleotide sequence analyses and tests of neutrality for a 5.5-kb region of the X-linked long-wave "red" opsin gene (OPN1LW) in 236 individuals from ethnically diverse human populations suggest that subtle changes in L-cone opsin wavelength absorption may have been adaptive during human evolution. Expand
Sex-related differences in chromatic sensitivity
TLDR
Assessing the performance of 150 males and 150 females on the color assessment and diagnosis (CAD) test found differences between males and females in red-green (RG) color discrimination may be related to the heterozygosity in X-linked cone photo pigment expression common among females. Expand

Variation in color matching and discrimination among deuteranomalous trichromats: Theoretical implications of small differences in photopigments
TLDR
T theoretical Rayleigh ranges (chromatic discrimination) and quantal matches for deuteranomalous trichromats with photopigments in the red/green range that vary in their separation and optical density are reported. Expand
Polymorphism of the long-wavelength cone in normal human colour vision
TLDR
Evidence for the existence of two different long-wavelength cone mechanisms in normal humans is reported and the different patterns of colour matches made by male and female subjects indicate these two mechanisms are inherited as an X-chromosome linked trait. Expand
More than three different cone pigments among people with normal color vision
TLDR
Comparing color vision differences with photopigment gene differences reveals that a serine/alanine polymorphism at amino acid position 180 of X-encoded pigments can account for this type of color vision variation. Expand
Polymorphism in red photopigment underlies variation in colour matching
TLDR
It is reported that a common single amino-acid polymorphism at residue 180 of the X-linked red visual pigment explains the finding of two major groups in the distribution of colour matching among males with normal colour vision. Expand
Color vision in two observers with highly biased LWS/MWS cone ratios
TLDR
Two sisters, heterozygous carriers for congenital X-linked protanopia, were diagnosed as normal trichromats by the Rayleigh match on the anomaloscope and the data indicate that normal color vision can occur even when the LWS/MWS cone ratio is quite abnormal. Expand
Evaluation of single-pigment shift model of anomalous trichromacy.
TLDR
Calculation of the r-g opponent chromatic channel can provide correct predictions of the spectral loci for unique yellow for anomalous trichromats. Expand
New observations concerning red–green color defects
TLDR
Family studies reveal that intrafamilial variability in chromatic discrimination is less than interfamilial variation, and a possible interpretation is that multiple, rather than three or four, alleles may be involved in X-chromosomal color-vision defects, with the alleles determining the proportion of functional anomalous cones. Expand
Differences in the responses of heterozygous carriers of colorblindness and normal controls to briefly presented stimuli
TLDR
Both experiments support the Lyon hypothesis in that female carriers were found to have more difficulty in perceiving patterns of colored stimuli than did control subjects, and they suggest that the amount of time that a carrier has to scan colored stimuli plays an important role in her ability to accurately perceive them.

Genetic basis of photopigment variations in human dichromats
TLDR
Pairwise comparisons of the opsin structures and pigment spectra confirm and clarify earlier conclusions and deduced Amino acid sequences from examination of the genes encoding the pigments. Expand
