We then briefly describe the claims made for trichromacy at normal lighting levels in the reviewed article, and subsequently describe why we have concluded that the statistical analysis in support of these claims is incorrect.
Although the demonstration of trichromacy failure appeared robust, the attribution of the failure to rod contributions was generally not acceptable, as rods were believed to not contribute to visual processing at photopic light levels.

Berman and Clear have misunderstood Thornton's description of trichromacy, and have incorrectly characterized our use of the term and concept.
Our article was designed to be consistent with Thornton's conceptualization of trichromacy and his prime color theory.
New World primates' vision changed, too, but not to full trichromacy. In most of these animals, some of the females discern reds and yellows from greens, but males don't.

Human colour vision is characterised by trichromacy. This refers to our ability to match all lights by a mixture of three other lights (the primaries), provided we are allowed (when needed) to add one of the primaries to the matching light.
