Senast ändrad: 26 oktober 2023

The aim of the study is to investigate if horses (who have a dichromate eye sight like red-green blind humans) see the difference between green and yellow (as red-green blind humans do), which is currently unknown. The study will be a series of behavioural tests conducted on horses aimed to elucidate if horses can differentiate between green and yellow, and which shades they can differentiate.
