Cortical substrate of bladder control in SCI and the effect of peripheral pudendal stimulation

  author={Monika-Zita Zempleni and Lars Michels and Ulrich Mehnert and Brigitte Schurch and Spyros Sreejanth Kollias},
We investigated (i) the central representation of lower urinary tract (LUT) control and (ii-iii) the acute and short-term central neuromodulatory effect of peripheral pudendal nerve stimulation in incomplete spinal cord injured (SCI) patients using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The urinary bladder of eight SCI patients has been passively filled and emptied using a catheter, to identify the neural substrate of bladder control (i), and with simultaneous peripheral pudendal nerve… CONTINUE READING
