The Trace Amine Associate receptor is a new potential mechanism of disease for Schizophrenia. This course will increase the understanding of the actions of the trace amine receptor activation and it’s role in the modulation of neurotransmitters associated with the genesis of psychosis. A discussion of the current research of new agents acting at the TAAR-1 receptor will complete the lecture.
- To increase the understanding of linking neural circuitry differences to unmet needs for new mechanisms of disease.
- Learn the evidence for trace amine associated receptors (TAAR) as therapeutic targets in models of psychiatric disorders
- To discuss and increase the knowledge of TAAR-1 agonists as two potential new treatments for people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia
