EAN 2023 | Investigating neural pathways involved in bladder control to inform novel treatments

Jalesh Panicker, MBBS, MD, DM, MRCP, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, London, UK, discusses ongoing research focusing on understanding the neural pathways involved in regulating bladder and sexual functions. By unraveling the complexities of this neural network, researchers aim to develop targeted treatments. Dr Panicker highlights a recent study investigating transcranial magnetic stimulation to address bladder control issues in multiple sclerosis patients. Another promising research avenue is further investigation of the periaqueductal gray (PAG) area in the midbrain, with hopes of uncovering how neuromodulation or other targeted treatments could enhance bladder control. This interview took place at the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) 2023 Congress in Budapest, Hungary.
