  • Micturition is a spino-bulbo-spinal reflex. The bulbospinal part of this reflex is formed by the projections from the M-region, also called the pontine micturition center or Barrington's nucleus, to the preganglionic parasympathetic motoneurons in the sacral cord innervating the bladder. In respect to the spino-bulbar part of the micturition reflex, our group recently showed that the sacral cord projections to the brainstem terminate mainly in the periaqueductal gray (PAG). In this study it was… CONTINUE READING
