Philip DeFina

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki



Philip DeFina, PhD., ABSNP, ABPdN (born 27 October, 1956) is a well-known neuroscientist, author, and lecturer. He is also founder of the International Brain Research Foundation (IBRF), a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation registered in New York.[1][2] He is most known for being involved in the development of novel treatment protocols for traumatic brain injury, coma, autisim spectrum, and PTSD[3] [4][5][6]. While widely accepted by the scientific community as groundbreaking, there have also been controversies over the treatments which challenge the status quo of neurological treatment protocols. [7][8] Dr. DeFina and the International Brain Research Foundation have been involved with many highly publicized cases of brain injury treatment, including the case of a 12-year old boy who was hit in the chest with a line drive during a baseball game, and the highly controversial case of Jahi McMath, who was pronounced brain dead and then legally dead following a surgery in 2013.[9][10][11][12] Dr. DeFina has also participated in many lectures, panels, and symposium's throughout his career[13][14], and has been an adjutant professor at New York University. He has contributed to dozens of neuropsychological textbooks, and co-wrote three books, The Neuropsychology of Written Language Disorders, The Neuropsychology of Mathematics: Diagnosis and Intervention, and The Neuropsychology of Reading Disorders: Diagnosis and Intervention Workbook.[15]
