In the present study an attempt has been made to measure the changes occurring in levels of some neuro-humors, such as catecholamines, serotonin (5-HT) and acetylcholine in blood and urine, after distension of urinary bladder caused by suppression of urine urge. Distenision of urinary bladder was produced by withholding the urine rabbits and observations were made at hourly intervals. Canges observed in the levels of these neurohumors reveal that withholding of urine is a stressful situation. Inference has been drawn that suppression of urine urge (vegavidharana) acts as a stressful situation and thus the study validates the role of vegavidharan in aetiology of diseases.
