AIMS Complete spinal cord injury does not block perceptual responses or inferior solitary nucleus activation after genital self-stimulation, even though the vagus is not thought to innervate pelvic structures. We tested if vagus nerve endings sprout after bladder decentralization to innervate genitourinary structures in canines with decentralized bladders.(More)
Objective: Preganglionic sympathetic axons to pelvic viscera originate from lumbar preganglionic neurons and contribute to sympathetic chain ganglia and lumbar splanchnic nerves to the inferior mesenteric ganglia (many via the hypogastric nerve). Postganglionic sympathetic axons to the urinary bladder originate mostly from L7–S2 sympathetic chain ganglia(More)
