Artist Tests Color-Blind Correction Glasses - Discover Magazine (blog)

Oxygen levels in blood can change skin color between red and green, whereas control over the amount of blood in the skin can make the color shift between yellow and blue. Together, they can transmit a wide array of social signals. A flushed face can signal anger; blushing may...
