In the past few decades, the apprehension of the human brain is on the rise. There has been vast research in the past decades which have contributed not just to structural form, but even to neuroanatomical, neurophysiological, and neurochemical correlates. In terms of neurochemistry, neurotransmitters already had a principal role. However, recently, attention is drawn to neuropeptides and their role in various physiological and pathological effects on the human body. The purpose of the present article is to review data in general about the relevance of neuropeptides in psychiatry. Our article highlights the findings of previous studies concerning the role of neuropeptides in various psychiatric disorders and its implications as a target for future treatment modalities.
