In brief: Enuresis alarm

Conditioning reflex device.
Alarm goes off when any wetness occurs. Bladder had previously sent nerve impulse to the brain, but unlike during the day, was ignored. After short while subject's brain puts 2 7 2 together & realizes that nerve impulse from bladder alerts brain of need either to urinate or "hold" it. Brain then has option of waking you before wetting occurs or tighten sphincter & dry!
