    Hi again, Roirosal :)

    In this case, I think that less is more.
    Everyone understands "discriminatoire" and it is a translation that will always work.
    Dictionaries, on the other hand, don't seem to agree on the definitions of the other 3 terms, so I'd rather not add them.
    Eg:
    https://www.larousse.fr/dictionnaires/francais/discriminatif/25876
    Sensibilité discriminative,
    sensibilité tactile fine permettant de discriminer entre plusieurs qualités de stimulation (effleurement, pression continue, vibration, piqûre, déplacement de poils).
