Salivary uric acid modulates stress-related hippocampal activity

The hippocampal response to psychosocial stress varies with salivary uric acid level Author: Goodman AM, et al (2016), Neuroscience. Uric acid is a naturally occurring, endogenous compound that impacts mental health. In particular, uric acid levels are associated with emotion-related psychopathology (e.g., anxiety and depression). Therefore, understanding uric acid’s impact on the brain would provide […]
