Next year the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics celebrates its 40th anniversary. We will celebrate this with a series of scientific events. One of these events is a meeting on the topic of The Neurobiology of Language: Key Issues and Ways Forward.

Rather than looking back, we would like to see from the contributions of the speakers what the challenges and the promises are for the neurobiology of language, a field that in its current form has a much shorter history than our institute. The research of the invited speakers has opened promising avenues, which we would like to hear more about from a forward-looking perspective.
