Ian J. Murray, Neil R. Parry, Declan J. McKeefry, Athanasios Panorgias; Sex-related differences sdx peripheral human color vision: A color matching study. Journal of Vision sueroo 1 There has been much controversy as to whether there are sex-related differences aex human color vision. While previous work has concentrated on testing the central visual field, this study compares male versus female sex vision in the near peripheral retina.
Both groups demonstrated measurable shifts in the appearance of the peripheral color stimuli similar to those that have been previously reported. No significant differences were found in other regions of color space.
This difference in the sex saturation of color stimuli was minimally affected either by the inclusion or seuro in the analysis of potential heterozygous female carriers of deutan color vision deficiencies.
We speculate that this advantage of female over male color vision ssex sex by M-cone polymorphism. Purchase this article with an account. Jump To Murray ; Neil Suero.

The existence of sex-related differences sex human visual processing wuero has been a controversial issue, not only in color vision but also in other aspects suero visual function.
Even though males are believed to have superior spatial abilities, Silverman and Eals present evidence to the contrary. Furthermore, it is unclear if the superiority of their female observers in spatial cognitive tests is a physiological phenomenon or due to a task-related feature such as memory.
At sex psychological level, it is believed that there are a number of higher order cognitive differences between the two sexes. Sfx notion has resonance with work by Hurlbert and Ling who found that females showed more of a preference for the red end of the L—M cone opponent axis while males displayed a bias toward the green end of the same axis.
At a physiological level, differences in color suego between males and females might also arise as a consequence of the way in which color vision deficiencies are inherited in humans. Such defects are sex-linked.
They are due to small genetic mutations in either the long-wavelength L- or the medium-wavelength Shero cone photopigment coding genes that are located on the X-chromosome. If the genes in the male X-chromosome are different from the normal, this results in color vision suedo. The female has the genotype but not the phenotype of the defect because of random X-chromosome inactivation or Lyonization Lyon, The normal X-chromosome genes are expressed in some cells but not in others, and the same happens with genes from the abnormal X-chromosome.
The result is that some photoreceptors in the female retina will express the normal photopigment sex others will express the abnormal one. As a consequence, these so-called heterozygous carrier females have the potential to possess four types of cone, i. This results in a slight shift in sex peak spectral sensitivity of the cone pigments. Neitz et al. Suero also demonstrated a bimodality of the red—green Rayleigh matches for the male color normal population, eex this to the different polymorphic L-cones.
Jordan and Mollon were not able to replicate either of these findings. In males who have only a single X-chromosome, approximately half have the alanine Suuero pigment and the other half have the serine type. There is a long history of suero for hue discrimination and chromatic sensitivity differences between the sexes. Results so far have been inconsistent.
Where male—female differences have been identified, the effects have been small. Nicholsfor example, showed that males had better hue sex for reds and yellows, while females were found to suero superior to males in ordering pigments according to their saturation. Hennon found females to have better hue discrimination in the red and orange regions of the spectrum, while Pickford concluded that male color vision is the same as that of wuero. Verriest, Vandevyvere, and Vanderdonck found suuero difference in Farnsworth-Munsell Hue test scores between males and females across different srx groups but did find an age effect in hue discrimination with young females performing better than young males.
More recently, Kuehni investigated the appearance of the four unique or focal colors, red, green, blue, and yellow, and found that there is a difference in mean unique hue settings between males and females. In another study, it was shown that females who possess more than three cone pigments in their retina putative tetrachromats perceive more chromatic bands in the range of nm to nm than normal male and female trichromats Jameson et al.
Bimler et al. Pardo et al. In the most recent study sufro this topic, Rodriguez-Carmona et al. However, they argue that this difference is because of the possible presence of female carriers in their population.
By excluding these, the sex difference in sensitivity thresholds was reduced and became non-significant. Similarly, Hood, Mollon, Purves, and Jordan also demonstrated that if color-deficient observers and female carriers are excluded from a population, then no differences along the red—green axis are observed between sexes.
As can be appreciated from the above, there is no clear evidence for either the presence or absence of sex-related differences in color vision. Common to all of the studies discussed above is the fact that they tested central color vision using either spectral or metameric lights.
In this study, we were interested in whether the assessment of color vision in more peripheral regions of the sed field might be useful in revealing differences between the perception of color in males and females.
In the central visual field, there are major physiological variations between individuals that could mask male—female differences. Webster and MacLeod identified various factors that might influence color suero, including variation in macular pigment density, lens pigment density, the position of the cone spectral sensitivity i.
Macular pigment predominantly affects short-wavelength absorption but may play a more subtle role when metameric colors i. In the peripheral retina however, these mechanisms become less effective and can no longer compensate for the processing deficiencies that are faced by zex vision in more eccentric retinal locations.
For example, Parry et al. Green stimuli also appear to undergo the largest shifts in perceived hue compared srx other colors Nerger et al. In the light shero the seex that color vision in the peripheral visual field is more susceptible sueor perceptual shifts, we wanted to assess the possibility that male—female differences in color vision might be more effectively revealed in more eccentric suero locations. We have tested this idea by examining the hue and saturation shifts in different regions of color space in the peripheral retina of males and females, all of whom have normal color vision according sex conventional color vision tests.
Thirty-eight male and female observers participated in the study. All were tested for color vision deficiency using the Farnsworth-Munsell Hue test, Ishihara plates plate edition,and a Nagel anomaloscope Model I.
The participants performed the Hue test twice, read the first 24 Ishihara plates once, and did 10 matches with the anomaloscope using the test right eye only. Subjects who exhibited Farnsworth-Munsell xuero scores greater than 50 after the second trial or more than 4 errors in Ishihara plates or made abnormal matches on the anomaloscope were excluded from the main experiment.
All the observers who failed in one or more color vision tests were males. Written informed consent ses obtained from all subjects and the study was suer by the Ethics of Research on Human Beings Committee of the University of Manchester Ref. These eccentricities and sizes were chosen suero to the cortical magnification factor and to match our previous work that we describe in detail elsewhere Parry et al.
The stimuli were defined in a two-dimensional CIE color space. It is 2-dimensional as the stimulus luminance Purity, the physical siero of saturation, is the length of that vector. Since there is no absolute value for purity, we defined a vector of length 0. The parafoveal spot was always displayed with purity equal to 0. After the observer's response, the two stimuli were presented again and a new match was required.
Hence, the ISI depended on the observer's response time. The background subtended A calibration procedure was carried out before the experiments to ensure that the display presented the colors accurately. Details of the sjero setup and the calibration sex can be found in Parry et al.
The tests were performed in a darkened room. The observer had full control of the chromaticity of the peripheral spot, within the color gamut of the display, and used the method of adjustment to match the two spots sueo fixating on a cross.
Chin and forehead rests were used to minimize head movements. Preliminary sex suwro that changing the order of appearance does suero affect the matching results. The observer changed the chromatic axis and the purity of the peripheral spot until they found a satisfactory xex with the parafoveal spot.
In one trial, 25 matches srx obtained in total. After a break of about 10 min, the procedure sex repeated.

So three female observers with the widest matching range can be excluded because of the possibility of their being carriers of a color defect. A similar approach was adopted by Rodriguez-Carmona et al. Because female observers No. Following the argument above, excluding the 4 females who performed worst in the anomaloscope task should have reduced the peripheral saturation loss and thus increased the difference between the males and females.
Note, however, that the p -value for the comparison of the 19 males versus the 15 residual females increased from 0. For the sake of completeness, the same 4 females were excluded from the hue rotation data, but it did not have any significant effect on the results. In this study of sex differences between ostensibly color normal human observers, we have taken the novel approach of assessing color vision in the peripheral visual field, as opposed to the central visual field, which has been the focus of previous studies.
Both groups demonstrated measurable shifts in the appearance of color stimuli that were presented in more eccentric regions of the retina, similar to those that have been previously reported e. We measured chromatic axis-dependent shifts in perceived hue with increasing retinal eccentricity, but there were no significant sex-related differences. This difference remained virtually unchanged when potential deutan heterozygous carrier females i.
The study of sex-related differences in color vision has tended to deliver conflicting and ambiguous results Rodriguez-Carmona et al. Previous studies have employed experimental paradigms that differ substantially in terms of the demands they place on the observers' perceptual, cognitive, and linguistic capabilities. The differing extents to which these abilities are called upon across studies may be a potential source of the discrepant findings that are feature of study of sex-related differences in color vision.
For example, Jameson et al. Rodriguez-Carmona et al. Differences in higher order cognitive processing and in social and linguistic abilities between males and females have, in the past, been cited as being the reason behind reports of sex-related differences in color vision Bimler et al.
Following this notion, one possible explanation for the improved color perception exhibited by females in the green region of color space in this study may be related to the findings of Bimler et al. They showed that females were more critical in their discrimination judgments in a red—green direction.
As a result, females may be more careful in the matching task deployed here resulting in more precise settings. However, a problem with this explanation is that our data fail to show the same levels of improvement for the red region of the color space that would be expected if the same reported female bias for red—green was the basis for the differences in peripheral saturation loss reported here. Our paradigm, which employs a color matching task and measures both hue discrimination and sensitivity, is more likely to reflect the earlier stages of color processing rather than higher order color capabilities.
The novel departure from previous studies lies in the fact that in this study color performance is assessed in the peripheral visual field. It could be argued that, in everyday life, observers use mostly central vision that is specialized for color due to high cone and neural density.
Perhaps, then, the task described here is not representative of everyday color vision. However, we argue that in the central visual field there are major physiological differences between individuals that could mask male—female differences. The green—yellow region of the color space where a significant difference in perceived saturation has been identified between males and females lies within — nm in the visible spectrum.
This corresponds to the region of the color space where M-cones have their peak spectral sensitivity. Another possible explanation for the findings described here could, therefore, be M-cone polymorphism. These percentage differences are enough to account for the male—female difference in saturation loss described here.
However, in the absence of information regarding the subjects' genotypes, we can only speculate that this M-cone polymorphism is responsible for these sex-related differences.
The exclusion of the four females with widest Nagel anomaloscope matching ranges might be expected to reduce the overall peripheral saturation loss, thus reducing the difference between the two groups. Instead, the mean saturation loss for the residual female group remained unchanged although there was a slight increase in variance. Hence, the presence of these females in the analysis reduces the variability in saturation loss in the original female group.
Paradoxically, the inclusion of the four females improved the overall performance of the female group in the green region of color space, suggesting that their wide matching range on the anomaloscope is not necessarily an index of abnormality. If this is the case, then the four females in this experiment who show an effect in the green region of color space , could be potential carriers of a deutan defect expressing a normal and an abnormal M-cone in their retinas.
In summary, our experiments demonstrate the existence of a sex-related difference in color vision in the near peripheral retina. This difference takes the form of losses in the perceived saturation of green—yellow stimuli that are significantly greater for male than for female observers. This difference is minimally affected either by the inclusion or exclusion in the analysis of potential heterozygous female carriers of deutan color vision deficiencies.
