Abstract

The pelvic-to-external urethral sphincter (EUS) reflex in intact and acute spinalized rats was analysis. The reflexes mediate bladder and sphincter coordination. Reflex responses consisted of a large early component and a small late component when the bladder was distended. The late component was not found when the bladder was empty. The small late component was gone after acute spinal cord transection indicated the late responses of the pelvic-to-EUS reflex were mediated by supraspinal reflex pathway.
