AIMS 1. To review current knowledge about brain-bladder control network based on brain imaging studies to date. 2. Provide basic information about use of imaging methods (fMRI and PET), analytical approaches and paradigms (infusion/withdrawal protocol) to study bladder control. 3. Address specific topics: - Role of different brain structures in control of continence - Brain activity during urgency and role of aging in bladder control - Neurodegenerative diseases and incontinence - Brain imaging and behavioral treatment of incontinence. OBJECTIVES 1. Interactive discussion of presented material with audience; debating strategies for translation/integration of brain imaging research into clinical practice.
