The integrity of the neurocontrol of the lower urinary tract is tested by clinical examination and several diagnostic tests, including clinical neurophysiological evaluation. Although general clinical neurophysiology is practiced in every neurology department, evaluation of the sacral component (chiefly S2, S3, and S4) is not widely available. Pelvic clinical neurophysiological evaluation requires additional clinical background knowledge that neurophysiology experts usually do not possess. Hence, uroneurophysiological techniques up to now have been most often applied to research.

Therapy of the voiding dysfunction is secondary to localizing, diagnosing, and treating, when possible, the underlying process. Cortical and subcortical involvements are characterized by uninhibited, coordinated detrusor and urethral activity with less effect on disturbance of voiding abilities. Disturbances in the paracentral cortical areas may result in loss of sphincter inhibition with the resulting clinical symptom of hesitancy. Subpontine, suprasacral processes, by affecting the long-loop micturition reflexes, lead to voiding disturbance with loss of detrusor-urethral coordination.

The parasympathetic efferent outflow to the bladder is activated via the medial pontine center. III.

Traveling action potentials are transmitted along the membranes of the nerves and muscle cells. , contraction).
