Long-term benefit of Microbiota Transfer Therapy on autism symptoms and gut microbiota | Scientific Reports

Notably, most improvements in GI symptoms were maintained, and autism-related symptoms improved even more after the end of treatment. Important changes in gut microbiota at the end of treatment remained at follow-up, including significant increases in bacterial diversity and relative abundances of Bifidobacteria and Prevotella. Our observations demonstrate the long-term safety and efficacy of MTT as a potential therapy to treat children with ASD who have GI problems, and warrant a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in the future.

Programmers and Musicians

Why is it like this? I think it’s because if musicians stop practicing, you notice more quickly. If I went to an orchestra rehearsal after a week of not practicing, my fingers would feel sluggish and my lips would hurt. Practicing as a musician is possibly as much about retaining your current skill as it is about improving. But in programming, your skills don’t regress so quickly: practicing is more about just improving your skills. So when we don’t practice, we don’t feel an immediate, negative reward. We just miss out on the better skills we could’ve had.
