    Dr. Ruff is a clinical neuropsychologist and rehabilitation psychologist who specializes in working with patients who have sustained traumatic brain injury (TBI). The focus of his research and clinical work in neuropsychology has been assessing and treating the cognitive and psychological changes that occur with neurological illness. He has developed and published several tests that address specific functions often compromised in patients with TBI. The therapeutic model includes evaluating not only the patient’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses, but also their emotional status. He also integrates the caregivers’ and community’s role into the patient’s rehabilitation. Dr. Ruff built a support network for his patients and their families by founding the San Diego Brain Injury Foundation, which remains as a successful organization.
