>Check us out here at UCSD. There is a biology department with a neuro
group (most people have biology undergrad degrees), a Neurosciences
interdisciplinary program (people have a wide range of undergrad degrees),
and a Department of Cognitive Science. The Neurosciences program is
flexible enough, I think, that you may well be able to work out something
between the departments if you wish, or just do something cog-sci oriented
within Neurosciences (or Cog Sci, but they're less neuro, except for a
couple of psych professors). There are even a couple of neurolinguists
around, like Ursula Bellugi at the Salk Institute (who can accept
Neurosciences graduate students). Try writing for information:
Neuroscience Program, 0608

there's a woman in my lab with, you guessed it, a linguistics background.
It works (she's in the Neurosciences department).
