What receptors are stimulated in the micturition reflex?

Micturation is what we commonally call urination. There are various stretch activated receptors within the bladder and in the adjoining sphincter that participate in the reflex. The bladder has to disallow backflow and coordinate the contraction of the bladder with the relaxation of the terminal sphincter. This is done through both voluntary control of the musculature as well via sympathetic and parasympathetic reflexes.
