Electrical stimulation at various sites in the dorsal pontine tegmentum in urethane anesthetized rats modulated activity of the urinary bladder as well as efferent firing on bladder postganglionic nerves. Electrical stimulation (0.2 ms 50 Hz, 5-20 V or 30-150 microA, 2-5 s train duration) using a microelectrode (tip diameter, 10-20 microns) in an excitatory area located rostral and medial to the locus coeruleus evoked short latency (less than 2 s) large amplitude (greater than 20 cm H2O… CONTINUE READING
