R] values below one for real deuteranopes (they see the pseudoachromatic greens darker).
R] values similar to those provided by real protanopes but not by real deuteranopes.
Post hoc analysis for R signals shows that normals have significantly shorter response times than do all color-deficient groups except for protanomals, and that protanomals have significantly shorter reaction times than do deuteranopes.
The differences are statistically significant, except for normal participants between G and Y signals, for deuteranomals between G and Y signals, for deuteranopes between R and Y signals, for protanomals for Y signals with both R and G signals, and for protanopes for Y signals with both R and G signals.
Green', say, just means something different to the deuteranope from what it means to most people.
This is because the recognition criterion required identification of whether a stop or go traffic light signal was displayed, and deuteranopes are known to have difficulty recognizing the colors of signal lights (Vingrys & Cole, 1988).

The classification plates are more effective for deuteranopes than protanopes, with a correct classification possible for around 90% of deuteranopes and around 80% of protanopes.
