Recent attempts to unify linguistic theory and brain science have
grown out of recognition that a proper understanding of language in
the brain must reflect the steady advances in linguistic theory of the
last forty years. The first Mind Articulation Project Symposium
addressed two main questions: How can the understanding of language
from linguistic research be transformed through the study of the
biological basis of language? And how can our understanding of the
brain be transformed through this same research? The best model so far
of such mutual constraint is research on vision. Indeed, the two
long-term goals of the Project are to make linguistics and brain
science mutually constraining in the way that has been attempted in
the study of the visual system and to formulate a cognitive theory
that more strongly constrains visual neuroscience.

The papers in this volume discuss the current status of the
cognitive/neuroscience synthesis in research on vision, whether and
how linguistics and neuroscience can be integrated, and how
integrative brain mechanisms can be studied through the use of
noninvasive brain-imaging techniques.

Alec Marantz and Wayne O'Neil are Professors of Linguistics at the
