Brief Summary:
Anal incontinence and constipation are frequently observed in patients with neurological disease. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the neurological control of the anal sphincter in healthy subjects, patients with neurological disease by a new electrophysiological technique. This technique consists in recordings of anal sphincter responses after magnetic stimulations of the cortex and the sacral nerves.
