The Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science (RuCCS) fosters research activities in cognitive science, focusing on the nature of certain symbolic processes that are constitutive of intelligent performance. The center's goal is to understand such aspects of intelligent performance as perception, language processing, planning, problem solving, reasoning, and learning, in terms of both the computational processes that underwrite these skills and the computational mechanisms that may instantiate them. The center's research, which is multidisciplinary, is carried on in its own facilities as well as facilities throughout the university. RuCCS also contributes to graduate training through the certificate program in cognitive science.
