Human Paleoneurology 2012

BIB members strongly encourage you to attend the Human Paleoneurology 2012 symposium in Burgos, very much related to biolinguistic issues. The event is organized by Emiliano Bruner, who took part in our ICREA International Symposium in Biolinguistics.
You can find out more about the event here.


All the members of the Biolinguistics Initiative Barcelona would like to thanks all the speakers, poster presenters and members of the audience for making the ICREA International Symposium on Biolinguistics a success.
Feel free to let anyone of us know your thoughts on the event. This would help us shape future meetings of this kind.
In the next few weeks we hope to have the videos and pictures of the event available on this site.
