#1 They decussate at different points. Pain and temperature decussate at the spinal cord level they enter into. If for instance you have a pain/temp nerve fiber entering at T6 from the left side, it will be traveling up the body at T5, T4, T3, etc on the right side. If you sever the spinal cord at T5 on the right side where this nerve is located at that point, you'll lose your left side pain/temp perception at T6 (and the rest of the levels below).

Motor loss is ipsilateral. I think descussation occurs in the cerebellum or at least near there, so any nerves in the left side of the spinal cord are going to the left side of the body (and the same for the right).
