Psychiatric syndromes, including schizophrenia, mood disorders, and autism spectrum disorders, are characterized by a complex range of symptoms, including psychosis, depression, mania, and cognitive deficits. Although the mechanisms driving pathophysiology are complex and remain largely unknown, advances in the understanding of gene association and gene networks are providing significant clues to their etiology. In recent years, small noncoding RNA molecules known as microRNA (miRNA) have… Expand
MicroRNAs and psychiatric disorders: From aetiology to treatment.
TLDR
The mechanisms that regulate microRNA biogenesis are described and the potential to consider microRNAs as putative target for pharmacological intervention, using common psychotropic drugs or more specific tools, with the aim to normalize functions that are disrupted in different psychiatric conditions is discussed.

TLDR
The role of miRNAs in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is focused on and recent findings about ASD‐associated genetic variants in miRNA genes, in mi RNA biogenesis genes, and miRNA targets are summarized. Expand
Epigenomic Dysregulation in Schizophrenia: In Search of Disease Etiology and Biomarkers
TLDR
The most well-known epigenetic marks, including DNA methylation and histone modification, along with emerging RNA mediators of epigenomic state, including miRNAs and lncRNAs are explored and their collective potential for involvement in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia implicated through the postmortem analysis of brain tissue is discussed. Expand
Exploiting Circulating MicroRNAs as Biomarkers in Psychiatric Disorders
TLDR
This review aims to critically evaluate the potential advantages and disadvantages of miRNAs as diagnostic/prognostic biomarkers in psychiatric disorders as well as in treatment response. Expand
MicroRNA: Small RNA mediators of the brains genomic response to environmental stress
TLDR
It is asserted that miRNA hold a significant position at the molecular crossroads between neural development and adaptations to environmental stress and stress- induced alterations in miRNA expression can regulate the stress response via modulation of the immune system. Expand
Long noncoding RNA and its contribution to autism spectrum disorders
TLDR
Several known functions of lncRNAs are reviewed and the potential contribution of lNCRNAs to ASDs and to other genetic syndromes that have a similar clinical presentation to AsDs, such as fragile X syndrome and Rett syndrome are reviewed. Expand
A Potential Role for the Noncoding Transcriptome in Psychiatric Disorders.

TLDR
This review will aim to provide insight into the expression of noncoding RNAs in the brain, their function, and potential role in psychiatric disorders. Expand
Dysregulation of circRNA expression in the peripheral blood of individuals with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of circRNA expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from 39 patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder as well as 20 healthy individuals using deep RNA-seq identified 8762 high confidence circRNAs with systematic alternative splicing in human PBMCs. Expand
Suicide and suicide behaviors: A review of transcriptomics and multiomics studies in psychiatric disorders
TLDR
How transcriptomic approaches have deepened the authors' understanding of the neurobiological underpinnings of psychiatric disorders and how they have to the identification of biomarkers for these disorders, with a focus on their relevance to suicide and suicide behaviors is reviewed. Expand
Emerging role of miRNA in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a systematic review
TLDR
It is shown that miRNAs modulate expression of genes linked to ADHD aetiology, and altered peripheral miRNA levels are observed in both ADHD animal model and humans, suggesting a notion of utilizing circulatory miRNA in disease diagnosis. Expand

Heterogeneous dysregulation of microRNAs across the autism spectrum
TLDR
This study finds that altered miRNA expression levels are observed in postmortem cerebellar cortex from autism patients, a finding which suggests that dysregulation of miRNAs may contribute to autism spectrum phenotype. Expand
Expression of microRNAs and Other Small RNAs in Prefrontal Cortex in Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder and Depressed Subjects
TLDR
There was a significant inverse correlation between the fold-change of a given miRNA seen in schizophrenia and its synaptic enrichment ratio observed in controls, suggesting some deficit in miRNA biogenesis, transport, processing or turnover in schizophrenia that is selective for the synaptic compartment.

MicroRNA-132 dysregulation in schizophrenia has implications for both neurodevelopment and adult brain function
TLDR
Analysis of expression of miRNAs in prefrontal cortical tissue from 100 control, schizophrenic, and bipolar subjects suggests miR-132 dysregulation and subsequent abnormal expression ofmiR- 132 target genes contribute to the neurodevelopmental and neuromorphological pathologies present in schizophrenia.

TLDR
Using in silico target gene prediction programs, the 22 miRNAs found to target brain specific genes contained within networks overrepresented for neurodevelopment, behavior, and SZ and BP disease development were found to be differentially expressed between cases and controls. Expand
