Abstract

Alzheimer's disease is a devastating neurological disorder. The role of hyperexcitability in the disease's cognitive decline is not completely understood. In this issue of Neuron, Palop et al. report both limbic seizures and presumed homeostatic responses to seizures in an animal model of Alzheimer's.
