is full professor at the Department of Neurology of State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil since 2005. Prof. Li received his MD degree from Federal University of Paraná in 1989 and PhD degree from McGill University in 2000, with a thesis entitled ?Static and dynamic properties of epileptogenic lesions? (Dean?s Honor List). Prof. Li had training in Neurology, Neurophysiology and Neuroimaging in different centers of excellency; Instituto de Neurologia y Neurocirugia de Havana, Cuba in 1992, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery ? Queen Square, London, UK, from September 1993 to September 1995, and the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, Montreal, Canada from October 1995 to May 2000. In addition to teaching students in undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate disciplines, Prof. Li works at the Epilepsy Surgical Program and Neuroimaging Laboratory of UNICAMP. The main focus of his research is study of epilepsy using neuroimaging, in particular magnetic resonance-based techniques and contrast nanoparticles. Prof. Li has also worked in regional and international campaigns to bring epilepsy awareness and he is president founder and volunteer of ASPE (Assistência à Saúde de Pacientes com Epilepsia ? www.aspebrasil.org) a non-governmental organization executor of Demonstration Project on Epilepsy in Brazil as part of Global Campaign Against Epilepsy ? WHO-ILAE-IBE. In 2006, Prof. Li has been engaged in setting up a stroke program at UNICAMP and a network coalition against stroke in the city of Campinas. In 2013, Prof. Li received The Ambassador for Epilepsy Award from International Bureau For Epilepsy and the International League Against Epilepsy. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

The central biological questions of our RIDC is the investigation of basic mechanisms that lead to epilepsy and stroke and the injury mechanisms that follow the disease onset and progression, and are related to prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. Our goals are to develop new methods and techniques to improve the understanding of mechanisms of damage, plasticity and repair in epile...
This research proposal is centered in the study of refractory mesial temporallobe epilepsy (MTLE) by high resolution structural MRI, receptor imaging and historadiological correlations. This approach will allow the development of methods for correlating in vivo and ex vivo imaging. Accordingly, we devised three projects that will investigate the basis of MRI signal alteration, serotonin...

Stroke is the leading cause of functional disability in adults. Among the most compromising functional consequences for the post-stroke patient, the muscular weakness of a hemicorp is the most prevalent, affecting upper and lower limb function contralateral to the brain injury. Neuroimaging studies have shown that post-stroke patients with motor symptoms have, in addition to a decrease ...
Epilepsy imposes a great psychosocial burden not only on the patient but also on the family and society. Often, people with epilepsy do not reveal the diagnosis, since sharing about their condition can lead to discrimination and social isolation. Stigma, as defined by Goffman, is "the situation of the individual who is disqualified from full social acceptance," related to the distance b...
The theory of mental models presupposes the existence of different brain functioning styles to problem solving. The theoretical construct has two main operating models; the operating style, characterized by the focus on the operation and the pursuit of accuracy, reliability, efficiency, prudence, discipline and compliance, with a pronounced concern with problem solving; and the strategi...

The history of exercise science over the second half of the twentieth century is filled with spectacular triumphs but also some epic failures. The successes consist in discovering a wealth of scientific evidence supporting the beneficial effects of physical activity on health and raising the awareness not only of the medical community but also of the public at large. The failures are th...
Currently, chronic diseases are major public health challenges. Stroke is an example and ranks as the leading cause of death in Brazil and the leading cause of physical, cognitive and social disability acquired in adult life in the world. In 2012, the Ministry of Health approved the Healthcare Plan for Stroke. However, investments without adequate local management plan, without articula...
