Autophagy is sometimes referred to as cellular “cleansing”, and our observations provide an attractive neuronal parallel to the organismal benefits that, historically, are perceived to derive from fasting.

Short-term food restriction(24-48 hours) induces a dramatic upregulation of autophagy in cortical and Purkinje neurons. 

Purkinje cells held in the cerebellum are responsible for communicating information from the cerebellum to the cerebral cortex. The cerebellum is now believed to play a central role in regulating our emotional, psychological, and sensory interactions with the world around us and ourselves.

In autism spectrum disorders, the brain consistently shows defects in Purkinje cells, which have a single axon that projects from the cerebellum and creates connectivity from the cerebellum to most other brain regions.

Previous research has found cerebellar dysfunction in people with ASD through postmortem studies of brain samples that showed loss of Purkinje cell volume. Over the past few years, a variety of studies have confirmed this phenomenon in the majority of autistic brains.

Our observation that a brief period of food restriction can induce widespread upregulation of autophagy in CNS neurons

Short-term fasting leads to a dramatic upregulation in neuronal autophagy. The increased neuronal autophagy is revealed by changes in autophagosome abundance and characteristics, and by diminished neuronal mTOR activity in vivo, demonstrated by a reduction in levels of phosphorylated S6 ribosomal protein in Purkinje cells.

Our data lead us to speculate that sporadic fasting might represent a simple, safe and inexpensive means to promote this potentially therapeutic neuronal response.

There are so many bodily practices that have been done and documented by ancient indians that scientists are just figuring out have notable health benefits now, it’s pretty amazing

Sorry boyo, Indians didn't invent fasting. Africans did. It was called "Intermittent starving" and they continue to be the world leaders of the practice.
