sam1  I believe this concept is referring to peripheral sensitization. Peripheral nerves that have sustained damage (such as through non-enzymatic glycosylation in DM) cause sensitization of their neighboring nerves, thus leading to lower thresholds for activation. This sensitization is thought to be accomplished through mediators such as PGE2. +6

Was I wrong to just pick the only answer with the word nociceptor in it?

submitted by maekhilak(0),

the way I approached this was that the patient has intact vibration sense but has lost sensation to pinprick. if the lesion was in the dorsal root ganglia (a) or dorsal horn (b) or dorsal root afferents (d), the sensory loss would be more widespread than loss of one modality.
