Nuo Li is a faculty member in the Department of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine. Prior to joining Baylor, he received his bachelor’s degree in engineering from Washington University in St. Louis, where he worked with Dora Angelaki on neural mechanisms of spatial perception. He received his Ph.D. in neuroscience from MIT, where he worked with James DiCarlo on neural mechanisms of visual object recognition. He then joined Karel Svoboda’s lab at Janelia Research Campus, HHMI, as a Helen Hay Whitney postdoctoral fellow, where he developed tools and methods to study the circuit mechanisms of decision-making in mice. Nuo’s research at Baylor is focused on understanding how neural circuit dynamics in the brain give rise to behavior. His lab uses genetic tools, two-photon microscopy and multi-electrode recordings to study the organization and function of neural circuits in the mouse during motor behaviors. He is an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow and a Searle Scholar.
