Does ADHD Effect Your Color Perception?

According to a one study it does. In comparing 14 children with ADHD to 13 children without ADHD the researchers noted that the ADHD children were worse at distinguishing colors and the at Stroop test. Oddly this effects the blue-yellow part of the spectrum worse than the red-green.
“Children with ADHD committed more errors on the [Farnsworth–Munsell 100 Hue Test], particularly on discrimination of colors along the blue–yellow axis, and were slower on Stroop subtests involving colour naming. However, the latter deficit was accounted for similarly by blue–yellow and red–green discrimination abilities. Blue–yellow colour perception problems in ADHD contribute to but do not fully explain the observed slowed colour naming.”
