RUBIC was built with a
$1.82 million grant
National Science Foundation
and is affiliated with the Psychology Department
Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience
. RUBIC enables
researchers from the Rutgers
campuses as well as those from nearby institutions (e.g., Kessler Foundation,
UMDNJ, etc.) to develop new research strategies and increase understanding of
brain processes underlying typical functioning (e.g. human development,
learning and memory, perceptual dynamics, neuroeconomics, computational
neuroimaging) as well as atypical functioning such as that associated with
developmental problems, mental illness, and addiction.
Research at RUBIC is supported at present by various agencies and foundations
and the James S. McDonnell Foundation.
