This study was undertaken with two objects: one clinical, the other physiological. From both aspects the results obtained seem to be of sufficient interest and utility to warrant their publication. The clinical object was primarily to throw light, if possible, on the diagnosis of a case which seemed to present considerable difficulty and concerning which very different conclusions had been arrived at by competent clinical observers. The physiological object was to contribute something to the solution of the question whether the afferent fibers through which the vasomotor reflexes induced by the application to the skin of heat and cold are identical with the fibers concerned in the corresponding sensations, a question which, so far as we are aware, has not received a definite answer. It is, of course, known that actual consciousness of the sensations is not necessary for the development of the vasomotor reactions, since they occur also in
