Neuroscientist and legislatures 

When Seth Rogen appeared before the Senate Committee on Appropriations, that brought a lot of attention to alzheimer’s disease. 

It seems as though it would be worthwhile to have a panel of neuroscientists do the same. 

They could explain, from the trenches, how research works and how a lack of funding hurts the process.

I feel pretty certain that most legislators, although they are pretty sharp, have no real idea of the process of research to find a cure. Momentum is extremely important. Institutional knowledge is extremely important. Many aspects are extremely important and we all need to know about them.
