Clinical notes and interpretation
  • Ability to discriminate within normal ranges indicates that the DC/ML is intact from the periphery.
  • Inability to discriminate within normal ranges may indicate PNS, central pathway, or parietal lobe lesion.
  • Two-point discrimination decreases with age but should not differ with gender.
