We know that mice are not good with seeing colors, but can discern between grays.

If you were to design a behavioral mouse experiment in which:

Mouse sees Color A -> do behavior A

Mouse sees Color B -> do behavior B

Which 2 colors would you choose (A and B ), so that the mouse can easily discern between the two colors.

Let me make it easy, your choices are Red, Green, Amber, or Yellow.

The colours or shades that give the highest contrast perhaps? I'd first try out if they really can distinguish the differences, though no idea how to do it.
