About us

The Grup de Biolingüística GB (Biolinguistics Group) at the University of Barcelona (UB) was established with the aim of relating the study of language to the natural sciences in general and biology in particular. This goal is fully justified, since the langauge faculty is one of the most (if not the most) important endowments of our species. The GB aims to advance this goal by contributing to the consolidation and diffusion of information on the subject via a number of different means, such as lectures, seminars and conferences.

The GB regards as necessary the collaborative interchange of ideas between linguistic theory and other disciplines such as evolutionary biology, neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics, genetics, complex systems theory, ethology, etc.). Incorporating evidence from each of these fields allows us to gain a better understanding of the nature, origins and evolution of language.
