Jason Krellman, PhD, ABPP-CN

Dr. Krellman's doctoral research focused on cognitive, behavioral, and neuroanatomical phenotyping of inbred mouse strains. His clinically-focused research began with postdoctoral training in traumatic brain injury (TBI) rehabilitation research at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where his fellowship work focused on identifying participant characteristics associated with loss-to-followup in longitudinal outcome studies of individuals with moderate to severe TBI and the development of group interventions to treat executive dysfunction following TBI. His latest research has focused on the development of interventions to treat long-term sequelae of moderate to severe TBI, such as emotional dysregulation and fatigue, as well as the incidence and predictors of neurological and psychiatric disorders following moderate to severe TBI. He has authored book chapters and peer-reviewed articles in the area of TBI rehabilitation.
