With science advancing daily, psychiatric disorders are more of a concern now than in the past. It is a significant step forward to increase societal awareness of psychiatric disorders since they do not fall under the category of visible and simply identified conditions as physical illnesses. The fact that ribonucleic acids (RNAs), which are responsible for conveying and interpreting the genetic code, have transcripts that do not code for proteins, is one of the key variables contributing to psychiatric disorders, which are known to be influenced by both environmental and genetic factors. An overview of the connection between brain function and non-coding RNA is intended in this review.
