The afferent nervous system plays an important role in the regulation of lower urinary tract (LUT) function. Multiple methods to study the afferent nervous system in the LUT have been described. This overview focuses on extracellular afferent nerve recordings of the pelvic and hypogastric nerves in cat, rat, mouse, and guinea pig from in vivo and in vitro models and considers how such recordings may lend to the understanding of interspecies differences.
