MICTURITION REFLEX

is the reflex contraction of the bladder as a response from stretch receptors. Children learn to suppress and control this mechanism during their early development.

MICTURITION REFLEX: "When a bladder detects stretching, the micturition reflex recognises this and highlights the requirement for the organism to offload the excess liquid."
