  1. micturition reflex

    The micturition reflex is an involuntary physiological response controlled by the autonomic nervous system that regulates the storage and release of urine from the bladder. It involves coordination between the central nervous system and the bladder through neural pathways, leading to contraction of the bladder muscles and relaxation of sphincters to expel urine when the bladder is full. This reflex is usually under voluntary control, becoming automatic or involuntary in case of certain conditions or disorders.
