Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The novel coronavirus disease COVID-19 that first emerged in Wuhan, China, in Nov-Dec 2019 has already impacted a significant proportion of the world population. Governments of many countries imposed quarantines and social distancing measures in 2020, many of which remain in place, to mitigate the spread of the SARS-Cov-2 virus causing the COVID-19 disease. The direct impact of COVID-19 on people infected with the virus, their families and the health care workers, as well as the impact of the mitigation measures such as quarantine, social distancing, and self-isolation on the rest of the population have contributed to a global mental health pandemic, including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, posttraumatic stress symptoms, psychosis, addiction, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and suicidality. These effects are present acutely (for example, due to fear of contamination or losing loved ones, effects of quarantine/isolation, withdrawal of community and social services, etc.) and may continue long after the pandemic is over (for example, due to bereavement, unemployment, financial losses, etc). The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered mental health problems in people without previous history of mental illness, as well as worsened the symptoms in those with pre-existing psychiatric diagnosis. Therefore, the global effort is called for to deal with this mental health pandemic secondary to COVID-19 itself to address the emergence of new as well as the exacerbation of the existing mental health issues. Conversely, this global context provides an extraordinary opportunity for studying individual differences in response to and resilience in the face of physical and psychological threat, challenge to “normal” way of life, and long-term uncertainty. In this viewpoint article we outline the particular suitability of mindfulness, its skills and mechanisms, as an approach to the prevention and management of mental health issues, as well as to the promotion of well-being and building the foundations of adaptability and flexibility in dealing with the long-term uncertainty and profound changes to the social, economic, and possibly political systems as this pandemic continues to unfold.

Musical achievement during a lockdown: The parental support miracle
Publication year: 2021
URL:
https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/1321103X211033794
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The quality of parental support is recognized as a crucial factor in the early stages of a student’s development, and particularly in instrumental music education. At the start of 2020, the outbreak of a global pandemic crisis posed new and unprecedented challenges to education, forcing families to stay at home to prevent contagion. This investigation was conducted during the period of a COVID pandemic lockdown in Portugal. We explored whether parental support, provided during the lockdown period, was associated with their child’s achievement as reported by their instrumental music teacher. For this study, 39 parent–teacher dyads of first-grade students of an instrument music course were recruited from two public music conservatories. Parents supplied information on the frequency in which they provided student-support-related attitudes and actions in the home context. Simultaneously, teachers provided information about the student’s achievement during the lockdown compared with the previous inperson performance period. Results indicate a strong relationship between parental support and musical achievement, with students who received higher levels of supportive parental involvement performing better than before the pandemic crisis. The findings are discussed in relation to the importance of parental involvement in a child’s instrumental music education.

O impacto da exposição às redes sociais durante o confinamento da COVID-19 na satisfação corporal

Abstract/Results: This work approaches the impact of the media and its potential negative influence on the body satisfaction of young women comparing Portuguese and English women. And given the unexpected emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact that the sudden massive use of digital media, accompanied by confinement and the need for physical distance, had repercussions in this domain was evaluated. This issue becomes even more important due to its relationship with Eating and Ingestion Disorders. So, 296 women (174 Portuguese and 122 British) between 18 and 35 years old participated in this study. They answered about body satisfaction and the pattern of use of social networks,
in two moments (before and after the beginning of the pandemic) through a questionnaire online. The results show that English women use social networks more and more frequently than Portuguese women; however, Portuguese women are more concerned about their appearance and the time they are exposed to the screens. Regarding the concern with the current appearance compared to the beginning of the pandemic, both groups reported more current concern, however the Portuguese women present higher levels of concern. Another relevant factor was realizing that after the start of the pandemic, the parts of the body that most concerned the participants were the face and hair, perhaps as a reflection of the constant exposure to social networks. Finally, there was a positive correction between the existence of concern with their own appearance and the indexes associated with depression among Portuguese women. This study presents evidence that physical isolation, and in some cases also social isolation, and the new format of social interaction via social networks and video calls had negative repercussions on many young women and exacerbated concerns in both cultures studied in this dissertation, more particularly between the Portuguese.

History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Title:
Predictors of cognitive dysfunction one-year post COVID-19
Publication year: 2023

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives:
(a) To characterize the frequency of objective cognitive deficits and self-perceived cognitive difficulties and (b) to explore demographic and clinical predictors of cognitive dysfunction and cognitive complaints.
Method:
One hundred and ten adults diagnosed with COVID-19 between March and November 2020, aged = 74 years underwent a brief neuropsychological evaluation 12 months after infection, which included: Brief Visuospatial Memory Test-Revised, California Verbal Learning Test, and Symbol Digit Modalities Test. T scores < 38 were considered abnormal performance; cognitive dysfunction was defined as = 2 abnormal tests. Participants also completed Broadbent's Cognitive Failure Questionnaires (CFQ), Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, Modified Fatigue Impact Scale, and Short-Form Health Survey. CFQ = 43 was considered indicative of cognitive complaints.
Results:
Twenty participants (18.2%) had cognitive dysfunction and 36 (33.3%) had cognitive complaints. Cognitive dysfunction was related to lower education, preinfection history of headache/migraine, and acute COVID-19 symptoms of headache and sleep disturbance. Cognitive complaints were more likely to occur in women, those with fewer years of education, and acute COVID-19 symptoms of headache and sleep disturbance. Cognitive complaints were also significantly related to symptoms of anxiety, depression, and fatigue. Sex and psychopathology were not significant predictors of cognitive dysfunction. Modest associations were found between CFQ total score and cognitive test performance.
Discussion:
A subset of individuals develops cognitive difficulties in the context of post-COVID syndrome. Results may support the protective effect of education, a known proxy of cognitive reserve. COVID-19 infection symptoms of headache and sleep disturbance appear to be risk factors for long-term cognitive difficulties.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This work approaches the impact of the media and its potential negative influence on the body satisfaction of young women comparing Portuguese and English women. And given the unexpected emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact that the sudden massive use of digital media, accompanied by confinement and the need for physical distance, had repercussions in this domain was evaluated. This issue becomes even more important due to its relationship with Eating and Ingestion Disorders. So, 296 women (174 Portuguese and 122 British) between 18 and 35 years old participated in this study. They answered about body satisfaction and the pattern of use of social networks, in two moments (before and after the beginning of the pandemic) through a questionnaire online. The results show that English women use social networks more and more frequently than Portuguese women; however, Portuguese women are more concerned about their appearance and the time they are exposed to the screens. Regarding the concern with the current appearance compared to the beginning of the pandemic, both
groups reported more current concern, however the Portuguese women present higher levels of concern. Another relevant factor was realizing that after the start of the pandemic, the parts of the body that most concerned the participants were the face and hair, perhaps as a reflection of the constant exposure to social networks. Finally, there was a positive correction between the existence of concern with their own appearance and the indexes associated with depression among Portuguese women. This study presents evidence that physical isolation, and in some cases also social isolation, and the new format of social interaction via social networks and video calls had negative repercussions on many young women and exacerbated concerns in both cultures studied in this dissertation, more particularly between the Portuguese.

The interaction between asthma, emotions, and expectations in the time of COVID-19
Publication year: 2023

ttps://doi.org/10.2147/JAA.S418840
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Introduction
The main aim was to gain insight into the experience of adult people with a diagnosis of at least 6-months of mild or moderate persistent asthma according to the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA), and their emotions, beliefs, and expectations during the first wave of COVID-19.
Methods
Qualitative semi-structured interviews using the Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) were carried out by phone involving 31 people (mean age=58.2; SD=16.2). Interviews were audio recording, transcribed verbatim and analysed through thematic analysis.
Results
Five superordinate themes and themes were dedicated to illness (symptoms of asthma; difficulties related to COVID-19), experienced emotions (lockdown period; medical changes; emotions COVID-19 related), beliefs (about asthma; about COVID-19), expectations (related to asthma; related to COVID-19) and behaviours (to protect; risk taken; adherence; contacts with General Practitioners; support). The prevalence of emotions such as fear, worry and anxiety emerged in the participants’ narratives. All are accompanied by a preference for action and problem solving. A sense of protection, connection to self and other, and commitment to life were revealed as central concepts for enhancing well-being even at a time of deterring.
Discussion
The common threads of the presence of uncertainty and vulnerability open the outlook of a treatment that ensures greater continuity and ownership of care in the patient, preserving the sense of self-efficacy even in times of greater instability.
