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:

Beverly Coleman
Neuroscience Program, 0608
University of California, San Diego

good luck!

Depends what you put into it.  Biology helps  (you'll have to learn it), but
there's a woman in my lab with, you guessed it, a linguistics background.
It works  (she's in the Neurosciences department).

A pleasure.
