Tactile discrimination or tactile discrimination is an aspect of tactual perception and is the ability to differentiate information received through the sense of touch.

This is often tested during neurological examination and represents a higher level of neurological function involving the cerebral cortex. Examples include the ability to discriminate between sharp and dull objects touching the skin, stereognosis, graphesthesia, and two-point discrimination.
