AMN 082 dihydrochloride
The first selective mGlu7 agonist. Potently inhibits cAMP accumulation and stimulates GTPγS binding in recombinant cells and on membranes expressing mGlu7 (EC50 = 64 - 290 nM). Selective over other mGluR subtypes and selected ionotropic glutamate receptors up to 10 μM. Acts via a novel allosteric site and is orally active and brain penetrant. Reduces haloperidol-induced catalepsy in rats.

The key feature of drug addiction is the inability to stop using a drug despite clear evidence of harm. This poster describes the brain circuits associated with addiction, and provides an overview of the main classes of addictive drugs and the neurotransmitter systems that they target.
Learning & Memory Poster
Recognition memory enables us to make judgements about whether or not we have encountered a particular stimulus before. This poster outlines the cellular mechanisms underlying recognition memory and its links to long-term depression, as well as the use of pharmacological intervention to assess the role of neurotransmitters in recognition memory.
Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
Schizophrenia is a debilitating psychiatric disorder that affects 1% of the worldwide population. This poster describes the neurobiology of Schizophrenia, as well as highlighting the genetic and environmental factors that play a fundamental role in the etiology of the disease.
