Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a set of neurodevelopmental features which represent limitations for the individual in his/her social, affective and functional life. Previously named as Pervasive Developmental Disorder, nowadays autism is conceived as a spectrum and is a vast fan of manifestations, usually with repetitive behavior, some delay on language acquisition and isolation. The present mini review aims to study ASD starting from the Neural Action Potential as initial element of neural networks, connectivity and relation of the individual with the environment, based on neurosciences, studies that have been published during the last 5 years on PUBMED and Google Scholar databases. Discussion takes place as a theoretical approach to possibilities of construction of those neural connections and its implications to ASD symptoms. It is urgent to spread information about ASD in order to search for better therapy strategies, relation between family and health professional formation centers as well as ameliorate ASD-assistance services.
