My field of interest is motor control defined as an area of natural science exploring how the nervous system interacts with other body parts and the environment to produce purposeful, coordinated actions. In particular, I have been involved in the development of the equilibrium-point hypothesis and uncontrolled manifold hypothesis using experimental studies of motor coordination during standing, stepping, reaching, and multi-digit (pressing and prehensile) tasks.

Dr. McEwen received his A.B. in chemistry from Oberlin College in 1959 and his Ph.D. in cell biology from Rockefeller in 1964. He was a United States Public Health Service Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Neurobiology in Göteborg, Sweden, from 1964 to 1965 and an assistant professor in zoology at the University of Minnesota. Dr. McEwen returned to Rockefeller in 1966 as assistant professor. He was appointed associate professor in 1971 and professor and head of laboratory in 1981 and was named Alfred E. Mirsky Professor in 1999.
