How do I get my gerbil to respond to me?

Call its name, and then give it a treat. Repeat this until it will take the treat from your fingers. It should soon associate hearing its name with receiving a treat. It's positive reinforcement.
Also, because gerbils are nocturnal, you may have more luck working with it in the evening.
I trained mine to potty in a glass jar. It was much easier to clean the cage afterwards!
Good luck!
