a gene implicated in human memory. The gene is expressed in the hippocampus, and those with one variant — the T-allele — appear to need less brain activity to remember the same amount of information compared to those with the C-allele. The gene has also been implicated in Alzheimer's risk. The gene is on chromosome 5.
