Givón -- Fundamental syntactic phenomena and their putative relation to the brain / Edith Kaan -- What kinds of syntactic phenomena must biologists, neurobiologists, and computer scientists try to explain and replicate? / Maggie Tallerman [and others] -- Possible precursors of syntactic components in other species / Austin T. Hilliard and Stephanie A. White -- What can developmental language impairment tell us about the genetic bases of syntax? / Dorothy V.M. Bishop -- What are the possible biological and genetic foundations for syntactic phenomena? / Szabolcs Számadó [and others] -- Brain circuits of syntax / Angela D. Friederici -- Neural organization for syntactic processing as determined by effects of lesions : logic, data, and difficult questions / David Caplan -- Reflections on the neurobiology of syntax / Peter Hagoort -- What are the brain mechanisms underlying syntactic operations? / Anna Fedor [and others] -- Syntax as an adaptation to the learner / Simon Kirby, Morten H. Christiansen, and Nick Chater -- Cognition and social dynamics play a major role in the formation of grammar / Luc Steels -- What can formal or computational models tell us about how (much) language shaped the brain? / Ted Briscoe -- What can mathematical, computational, and robotic models tell us about the origin of syntax? / Herbert Jaeger [and others]
