Good things came out of those contacts, for example Mitch Marcus' work,12 and more recently, the very interesting work of Bob Berwick of the artificial intelligence laboratory, who has been working with Amy Weinberg of our department. Yukio Otsu and Alec Marantz, also students in our department, keep contact at some level between psychology and linguistics. I think such contacts are really going to be fruitful in the future. Another reason for the lack of contacts might be that much work in socalled artificial intelligence appears to be addressing somewhat different questions, questions that from our perspective are the wrong ones.

Mutual understanding and healthy interactions are quite difficult to achieve between academic fields that have developed in distinct academic traditions and research cultures. There are obviously various differences in research conventions, for example, the method of data presentation and experimentation. A field must have the attitude of making a serious effort to learn about the accomplishments of other fields and not be bound too much by its own research conventions. In the case of linguistics and the brain sciences, this is absolutely necessary in order to build a collaborative research enterprise in which, on the one hand, the brain scientists working on language can learn from the insights and discoveries accumulated in Generative Grammar, while, on the other hand, Generative Grammar, when grammatical models are to be constructed, can take into account various neuro-physiological processes unveiled in the brain sciences.
