Gregory Pearcey

Northwestern University

Dr. Gregory Pearcey is a Sensorimotor Neuroscientist and Exercise Physiologist who studies how sensory input, physical training, and therapeutic interventions can alter human abilities and capacities. He is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Northwestern University and Shirley Ryan Ability Lab in Chicago, and studies human motor unit behavior using high-density surface electromyography under the mentorship of Drs. CJ Heckman and W Zev Rymer. This work lends evidence from basic neurophysiology with goals of improving human motor function. In his spare time, he loves playing ice hockey, weightlifting, downhill skiing, mountain biking, and spending time with his dogs. All these activities, including the research, wouldn’t be possible without his passion for craft coffee, which keeps him fueled throughout the day.
