I'm very interested in the subject or neuroscience. Is the public invited to this or is it just for legislators?

The presentation is for legislators but is open to the public.

I am in the field of research. It's about time that we have this type of resources in Hawaii. This is a wonderful venture and we should all support the institute and it's mission.
