Is there a perceptual (non-physical) component to colorblindness that can be cured or mitigated by training?

I've known for a long time that I have color vision deficiency, but it's only recently through self-testing
borne of curiosity that I've self-diagnosed moderate protanopia/protanomaly. So I have color vision, it just isn't "correct." I know that I can't grow better photoreceptors, but can I train my brain to be more responsive to those difficult hues, the way that musicians can learn perfect pitch? Are there any methods to accomplish this? Have you found ways to outsmart your weak eyes?
