Peter Gager, PhD - Neuropsychologist at Brain Health Center

Peter Gager, PhD

As a clinical neuropsychologist, I have evaluated individuals with cognitive and emotional difficulties to help them better understand the underlying causes and to ensure they get the most appropriate and effective treatments.

In addition, as a former USA Cycling competitive cyclist, soccer, and lacrosse player, I enjoy working with athletes of all ages and following research developments related to concussion management and performance optimization.

I am a board-certified neuropsychologist who was an assistant Professor in Psychiatry at the University of Kentucky until 2019.

Before UK, I specialized in assessing and treating special operators with PTSD and brain injury at the National Naval Medical Center and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center’s National Center of Excellence.

My training in psychology and neuropsychology began at Rutgers University for my Ph.D., where I was awarded a Fulbright research scholarship.

My postdoctoral training included an internship at Mount Sinai School of Medicine Psychiatry in New York and a two-year residency at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor Psychiatry. Finally, I began my studies as a religion major at Wesleyan University in Connecticut.
