and Training at Kessler Foundation, a Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine &
Rehabilitation, and the Department of Neurology at Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School. He is board
certified in Rehabilitation Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology. Dr. DeLuca
has been involved in neuropsychology and rehabilitation research for over 30 years. He is
internationally known for his research on disorders of memory and information processing in a variety
of clinical populations including: multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, aneurysmal subarachnoid
hemorrhage, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Dr. DeLuca has published over 350 articles, books and
book chapters in these areas, has edited 7 books in neuropsychology, neuroimaging and
rehabilitation, and is a co-editor for the Encyclopedia of Clinical Neuropsychology. He has received
over 38 million dollars in grant support for his research. Dr. DeLuca's most recent research ventures
include the cerebral mapping of human cognitive processes using functional neuroimaging, as well as
the development of research-based techniques to improve cognitive impairment. He serves on the
editorial boards of many journals and has received numerous national and international awards in
recognition of his work.
