The purpose of the present study was to clarify how Barrington's nucleus regulates bladder contractility. Single neurones that discharge at higher rates during micturition contraction were recorded from Barrington's nucleus. Spinal-projecting neurones were identified by antidromic stimulation of the spinal cord. Seventy-six spinal-projecting neurones were classified into four types based on the firing patterns displayed during the relaxation phase of the micturition contraction-relaxation… CONTINUE READING
