Adaptive Control Of Thought-Rational (ACT-R)

Adaptive Control of Thought-Rational (ACT-R), developed by John Robert Anderson of Carnegie-Mellon University, was designed as a "cognitive architecture" that intends to define the basic component operations that enable the human mind. Theoretically, ACT-R attempts to break down human thought processes into a series of discrete steps, much like a computer program. A great deal of ACT-R's basic assumptions are inspired by cognitive neuroscience and is described as a means of specifying how the brain itself is organized.
