    Jason Krellman, PhD, ABPP-CN is a clinical neuropsychologist and brain injury rehabilitation researcher who holds the rank of Assistant Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine. He is board certified in clinical neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology.

    Dr. Krellman has extensive experience in neuropsychological evaluation, cognitive remediation, and psychotherapy with patients experiencing a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders, including dementia, movement disorders, acquired brain injuries, depression, and anxiety. He uses his background in neuroscience and medical neuropsychology to inform his cognitive evaluations, which are aimed at identifying targets and methods for effective treatment and addressing practical issues relevant to patients' everyday lives, such as return-to-work decisions. His approach to cognitive remediation and psychotherapy is individualized based on patients' specific symptoms, life roles, ethnic and cultural background, and personal values.

    Within the Brain Injury Research Center (BIRC) at Mount Sinai, Dr. Krellman is actively involved in a number of research projects funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). He is Principal Investigator on studies examining the efficacy of phototherapy for fatigue following TBI and the feasibility of delivering emotion regulation skills training to TBI survivors via videoconferencing. He also serves as Director of Training for the BIRC's NIDRR-funded post-doctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology and rehabilitation research, of which he is a graduate.
