Development

From its start, RuCCS has been committed to bringing together researchers across the core disciplines of cognitive science to investigate cognitive and linguistic development, and the nature of our early representations. In doing so, we seek to identify universals, the foundations of more complex representations, how the process of acquisition and learning unfolds, and a baseline against which we can make comparisons for developmental variation. The below core RuCCS faculty represent research in Development.
