The effects of electrical stimulation of dorsolateral pontine structures on urinary bladder motility have been compared with those of microinjection of an excitatory amino acid, DL-homocysteic acid (DLH), which is believed to activate neuronal cell bodies but not axons. Increases in the intravesical pressure (IVP), indicative of urinary bladder contractions, were observed following low intensity (less than 50 microA) electrical stimulation in the brachium conjunctivum (BC) and the surrounding… CONTINUE READING
