Nuo Li, Ph.D. credit: Agapito Sanchez, Jr. Purposeful and intelligent movements seem to happen with little thought; yet a single movement involves a complex neural network that spans multiple regions of the brain. Understanding the internal processes that leads to planning and execution of voluntary movement is critical to understanding cognitive disorders and is the research focus of Dr. Nuo Li, the newest McNair Scholar at Baylor College of Medicine. The McNair Scholars program at Baylor College of Medicine is supported by The Robert and Janice McNair Foundation and managed by the McNair Medical Institute, which is headquartered in Houston. It identifies and funds world-class researchers in breast and pancreatic cancer, Type 1 diabetes and the neurosciences enabling them to collaborate and conduct transformative biomedical research.   “Brain functions are…
