In collaboration with the department of functional neuro-urology from MUMC+ (Maastricht) and Erasmus MC (Rotterdam), we have been awarded with the NWO ‘humane meetmodellen’ grant, that will support ultra-high field MRI research into the neural mechanisms involved in bladder control. In previous years, Scannexus and the dept. of neuro-urology have successfully partnered by studying how regions in our brain stem and spinal cord work together while our bladder fills up. This grant will further these developments by focussing on the overactive bladder syndrome, to discover if this disease is caused by neural malfunctioning. This could guide future treatment.
