  It is possible that increased UA levels are a trait marker of higher vulnerability to bipolar disorder, and are even more increased during mania (mostly in the first manic episode of drug-naïve patients).

 The current study provides novel evidence that brain function varies with baseline uric acid level. Specifically,​ these results demonstrate that uric acid is associated with a greater hippocampal response to psychosocial stress.

 +Astrocytes perform many functions, including biochemical support of endothelial cells that form the blood–brain barrier, provision of nutrients to the nervous tissue, maintenance of extracellular ion balance, and a role in the repair and scarring process of the brain and spinal cord following traumatic injuries. ​
