This shows neuronsBIN1, a gene associated with Alzheimer's disease, regulates hippocampal neural activity. Neurons with higher levels of BIN1 fired more often and were more prone to hyperexcitability. BIN1 is the first gene to be linked to hyperexcitability as a driving factor for the development of Alzheimer's disease.
