Homozygotes for a null allele show aberrant synapses and neurons in the hippocampus CA1 field. Homozygotes for another null allele have normal LTP and spatial reference memory but show increased polyspiking in response to repetitive afferent stimulation and enhanced kainite-induced seizure activity.
