Webinar: The Role Of Glutamate In Mood Disorders & Schizophrenia
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: Glutamate is the predominant excitatory neurotransmitter in the nervous system, and glutamatergic dysregulation has been implicated in the pathophysiology of both mood disorders and schizophrenia. In this webinar, James Murrough, MD, PhD and Laura Rowland, PhD, will examine current research in this area, provide an overview of ionotropic and metabotropic glutamate receptors, discuss the rationale for development of glutamatergic modulators in the treatment of mood disorders and schizophrenia, and review various targets for therapy.
