Keith McGregor is an Assistant Professor at Emory University in the Department of Neurology and a VA Health Science Specialist. His work currently investigates aging-related declines in motor control and its implications to stroke rehabilitation. Dr. McGregor has received a notice-of-intent to fund a VA Merit Award studying the effects of aging and exercise on GABA function with respect to motor learning. His current projects employ multimodal imaging and neurophysiological techniques (TMS, tDCS, fMRI and DTI) to investigate brain function. Dr. McGregor's work has shown that aging is associated with decreased levels of cortical inhibition, which affects motor control including motor learning.
Keith received a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Psychology with a Biological Psychology concentration from the College of the Holy Cross in 1997. After collegiate graduation, he worked as a systems administrator for the Bernard Hodes Group and Monster.com before re-entering academia in 2003.
Keith graduated from the University of Florida with a PhD in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience in 2010. He is interested in motor control, stroke rehabilitation, and aging.
