(1) Lumbar dorsal horn units characterized by their mechanical cutaneous sensitivities were tested for their responses to temperature changes of the skin in the decerebrate spinal rats. (a) Class 1 units (i.e. driven by non-noxious mechanical stimuli) were rarely thermally sensitive. (b) Nearly all class 2 units (i.e. driven by both non-noxious and noxious mechanical stimuli) and 4 of the 5 class 3 units (i.e. driven by noxious mechanical stimuli) were sensitive to temperature changes.
