Figure 6

Cystometrograms in control animals and animals with colonic inflammation. The bladder inter-micturiton intervals (Aa and Ba) and the quantity of solution voided (Ab and Bb) were recorded in unrestrained conscious animals. The dotted vertical lines align the time points for urination, thus the distance between the dotted lines (or the peak of the micturition pressure) represents the inter-micturition intervals. Arrows indicate the non-voiding contractions (increases in the intravesicle pressure (Aa) but no voiding collected (Ab) corresponding to these urges).
