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.
