Virtual Event – Trace Amine-Associated Receptor 1 (TAAR1): A Potential New Target For The Treatment of Schizophrenia

This is a Virtual Event for PsychU members in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia.

Trace amines and trace amine-associated receptors (TAAR) are found throughout the brain and peripheral tissues and have modulating effects on neurotransmitters including dopamine, glutamate, and serotonin.1,2 The speaker(s) will discuss what are some of the potential effects of TAAR1 on neurotransmitter signaling related to schizophrenia and some of the preclinical data, as well as share the potential role of TAAR1 beyond schizophrenia.

Objectives:

  • Summarize the Unmet Needs of Schizophrenia as it Relates to Neural Circuitry
  • Introduction to Trace Amines (TA) and Trace Amine-Associated Receptors (TAARs) and Their Potential Relationship to Schizophrenia
  • Discuss Potential Modulating Effects of TAAR1 on Neurotransmitter Signaling Associated with Schizophrenia Pathophysiology
