History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
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.

A meta-analysis of forced-choice experiments comparing clairvoyance and precognition
Publication year: 1998
URL:
http://www.biomedsearch.com/article/meta-analysis-forced-choice-experiments/54194992.html
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This meta-analysis examined a database of studies published in the main parapsychology journals from 1935-1997 that compared outcomes of precognition and clairvoyance trials under relatively similar experimental conditions. Both the precognition and clairvoyance studies had a statistically significant cumulated overall effect but there was no evidence to suggest that clairvoyance worked better than precognition, with the mean effect sizes (z/[N.sup.1/2]) of the two types of ESP in the 22 study pairs being very similar at 0.010 for precognition and 0.009 for clairvoyance. There were no statistically significant correlations between the presence of procedural safeguards and effect size and hence no suggestion that methodological problems had played any strong and obvious role in the overall effects, although the small database would be expected to provide relatively low statistical power for detecting any such effects. None of the planned analyses examining the effects of potential moderator variables upon effect size were statistically significant but a post-hoc ANOVA indicated a statistically significant interaction, F (1, 16) = 15.04, p = .001. between whether the trials were precognitive or clairvoyant and how the two types of trial were interspersed (separated into studies or mixed within a study). Being a post-hoc result and one of many analyses performed, this finding may not be meaningful. Equally, however, the general lack of significant findings does not conclusively indicate a lack of genuine relationships, given the low statistical power in the database. In case low power had in fact been a problem in identifying moderator variables, contrast between groups in effect size alone, regardless of the statistical significance of the difference was used as a criterion to identify promising variables to examine or exploit in future research. These variables and suggestions for future research are discussed.

Publication year: 1999

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper reviews six clairvoyance experiments and two precognition ones. In essence, all eight studies use an unbalanced deck of some kind in which one or more items in the deck (will) appear more frequently than others. Traditionally, results from the six clairvoyance experiments have been thought to support each other; the current assessment, however, reveals that the findings are not as complementary as might first be imagined. Although all authors believe that psi operates globally in their experiments by scanning the whole target set, at least four different models are offered to explain how global psi might work. None of these models can explain all the results. A review of the two precognition experiments reveals that they fail to address the questions they sought to answer. Moreover, if global psi extends over time as well as space, the variety of models used to explain the clairvoyance studies may also be pertinent to the precognition experiments. A number of potential research questions are identified and a series of experiments is devised to answer the question of whether precognition foresees events that will be or whether it looks forward to what will be decided. It is hoped that this review will promote more conceptually rigorous research.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
An earlier postal experiment by Steinkamp (2000) examined whether true precognition was possible by comparing 2 conditions. In the clairvoyance condition, targets were selected by a pseudorandom number generator before participants did the trials at home; in the true precognition condition, targets were selected using an algorithm on prespecified stock market and temperature figures on a prespecified future date. It was thought unlikely that participants could use either psychokinesis or other real-time psi to perform successfully in the true precognition condition. Results were significant in the clairvoyance condition (p = .04, one-tailed) and only at chance in the true precognition one. The difference in performance between the 2 conditions was significant (p = .01, one-tailed). This article presents 2 replication studies using different settings. The 1st, in the laboratory, gave almost significantly high scores in the precognition condition (p = .06, two-tailed) but only chance scores in the cla irvoyance condition, with no significant difference between the 2 conditions. The 2nd, conducted over the World Wide Web, produced scores tending toward psi missing in the precognition condition (p = .08, two-tailed), chance scores in the clairvoyance condition, and an almost significant difference between the 2 conditions (p = .07, two-tailed). Differences are discussed.

Title: BIAL Grants
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: RESULTS:
Literature Review
This paper details a research program for determining whether precognition is of a fixed or a changeable future.
Meta-analysis of experiments comparing clairvoyance and precognition
The 22 studies yielded significant evidence for both clairvoyance and precognition with no difference in effect size (ES) between clairvoyance (ES = .009) and precognition (ES = .010). Thus the meta-analysis yielded no evidence that precognition is explicable through a clairvoyance and inference model.
Survey
167 first-hand precognitive experiences were submitted by respondents. People who acted on their premonitions fell into two distinct groups. One group acted as if they foresaw events that could be prevented (e.g., a car crash). The other group scored low on the neuroticism scale and acted on their experience irrespective of the type of event foreseen. The majority of respondents were women and the experiences were usually about men, regardless of the respondent’s sex. Most experiences were dreams. The study replicated a previous finding that women over 45 who reported having had their first precognitive experience early on in life were significantly more likely to have fewer children than those who did not report having had their first precognitive experience until later.
Postal Experiment comparing clairvoyance and precognition
Overall the results were at chance. However, when the clairvoyance and precognition trials were considered separately, the clairvoyance condition yielded significant results (N=60, p=.05) whereas the precognition one was at chance (N=59, p=.5). The difference between the two conditions was significant (p=.01). Thus this experiment yielded no evidence for precognition.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The present study deals with brain activities using fNIRS (functional near-infrared spectroscopy).
First, brain blood flow was measured while guessing a hidden figure (Zenar symbols) in a forced-choice test. Subjects were 14 healthy adult volunteers (8 males, 6 females): average age was 46.6 (SD = 15.2). 1 trial was 3 min. Subjects scored degree of formulation of visual images. Results of 69 trials, spontaneous blood flow change (SBFC) often occurred at the temporal lobe, and at that time the images were formulated clearly. In other words, awareness was more activated. We named it as instantaneous highly activated state of awareness. However, SBFC did not relate to successful clairvoyant task.
Second, brain blood flow of various experts was measured in a free-response test to guess for the invalid parts of the inside of human body or for a small thing hidden in a dark box. Subjects were 11 healthy volunteers (5 males, 6 females): average age was 39.7 (SD = 12.1). Two of them were famous star psychics of Russia and China. Brain activities of star psychics during clairvoyance were not similar to activities of other subjects. The characteristic activated area of star psychics was the prefrontal area although many subjects showed activation of the right temporal lobe. Star psychics seemed to think, not only formulate visual images. In addition, photons were measured around the target thing during the clairvoyant task. However there was no appearance of anomalous photon.

Impression and spontaneous blood flow change at the temporal lobe while guessing for a hidden figure
Publication year: 2005

http://psycnet.apa.org/psycinfo/2005-14012-001
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In a previous study using near-infrared spectroscopy (Yoichi et al, 2002), the authors found spontaneous blood flow change often occurred at both temporal lobes while guessing for hidden figures (clairvoyant condition). This phenomenon was considered to have a relationship to the degree of impression formulation of figures. In the present study, the authors looked at details of the phenomenon. There were 14 participant volunteers. One trial consisted of a 3-minute guessing period and a 3-minute rest period, and 1 run consisted of 3 trials and 69 trials were done in total. The target figure was selected from 5 figures by a pseudo random number function. Then it was displayed on a CRT covered by a gray paper box. After the 3-minute guessing period, subjects gave their answers and degrees of impression formulation (3 degree method). The spontaneous blood flow change at the temporal lobe was observed in 10 trials. The degree of impression formulation was high when the change occurred (p<0.001, one-tail). The change also often occurred when subjects made their responses after guessing although the change did not relate to the degree of impression formulation. Ten guessing results were correct, but this number was not significant. Moreover, 3 of 10 correct trials were obtained when the spontaneous blood flow change occurred although it was not significant (p = 0.06, one-tail). The relationship between the correct response and the spontaneous blood flow change should be researched in further studies.

Brain blood flow change with functional near infrared spectroscopy while guessing
Publication year: 2006
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
In a previous study using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (Yoichi et al, 2002), the authors found spontaneous blood flow change often occurred at both temporal lobes while guessing for hidden figures (clairvoyant condition). This phenomenon has a relationship to the degree of impression formulation of figures (Kokubo, et al., 2005). These studies were forced choice tests. In the present study, the authors researched the brain blood flow change in free-response guessing tests chiefly. Subjects were 11 healthy volunteers. Targets were geometric symbols, the inside of human body or a thing in a dark box. Brain blood flow was measured at frontal area and right temporal area while guessing the targets from 3 to 30 minutes. Results, star psychics showed the increase of blood flow at their prefrontal areas, not right temporal lobes. While the other subjects showed the increase of blood flow at their right temporal lobes, not frontal area. In case that the task was to guess the hidden visual targets, the activated areas of the brain of star psychics were different from ones of the other persons.

Brain activity while guessing: Research by functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS)
Publication year: 2006
Abstract/Results:
SUMMARY:
There are several useful methods to examine brain functions from outside of the body. One of them is fNIRS (functional near-infrared spectroscopy) which can be used to measure only the cerebral cortex near the scalp (depth: 2-3 cm). fNIRS is non-stressful the same as EEG measurements, so it is a suitable method for sensitive subjects. The present paper deals with 3 topics using fNIRS. First, brain blood flow was measured while guessing a hidden figure in a forced-choice test Spontaneous blood flow change often occurred at the temporal lobe, and awareness was slightly more activated at that time. Second, the cognitive process for human facial expressions was researched. It is said that Japanese are expressionless or vague compared with people of other cultures. Subjects tried to distinguish emotions of vague faces made by a Japanese actress. The task was relatively easy for Japanese while it was difficult for Chinese. Third, brain blood flow of various experts was measured while they were guessing for the invalid parts of the inside of human body or for a small thing hidden in a dark box Brain activities of star psychics during clairvoyance were not similar to activities of other subjects. The characteristic activated area of star psychics was the prefrontal area although the guessing task required formulating visual images and many subjects showed activation of the right temporal lobe.

Abstract/Results: BOOK DESCRIPTION:
IS EVERYTHING CONNECTED?
Can we sense what's happening to loved ones thousands of miles away? Why are we sometimes certain of a caller's identity the instant the phone rings? Do intuitive hunches contain information about future events? Is it possible to perceive without the use of the ordinary senses?
Many people believe that such "psychic phenomena" are rare talents or divine gifts. Others don't believe they exist at all. But the latest scientific research shows that these phenomena are both real and widespread, and are an unavoidable consequence of the interconnected, entangled physical reality we live in.
Albert Einstein called entanglement "spooky action at a distance" - the way two objects remain connected through time and space, without communicating in any conventional way, long after their initial interaction has taken place. Could a similar entanglement of minds explain our apparent psychic abilities? Dean Radin, senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, believes it might.
In this illuminating book, Radin shows how we know that psychic phenomena such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis are real, based on scientific evidence from thousands of controlled lab tests. Radin surveys the origins of this research and explores, among many topics, the collective premonitions of 9/11. He reveals the physical reality behind our uncanny telepathic experiences and intuitive hunches, and he debunks the skeptical myths surrounding them. Entangled Minds sets the stage for a rational, scientific understanding of psychic experience.

Title: BIAL Grants
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: RESULTS:
Parapsychology is the scientific investigation of apparently paranormal mental phenomena (such as telepathy, i.e., "mind reading"), also known as psi. Despite widespread public belief in such phenomena and over 75 years of experimentation, there is no compelling evidence that psi exists. In the present study, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used in an effort to document the existence of psi. If psi exists, it occurs in the brain, and hence assessing the brain directly should be more sensitive than using indirect behavioral methods (as have been used previously). To increase sensitivity, this experiment was designed to produce positive results if telepathy, clairvoyance (i.e., direct sensing of remote events), or precognition (i.e., knowing future events) exist. Moreover, the study included biologically or emotionally-related participants (e.g., twins) and emotional stimuli in an effort to maximize experimental conditions that are purportedly conducive to psi. In spite of these characteristics of the study, psi stimuli and non-psi stimuli evoked indistinguishable neuronal responses – even though differences in stimulus arousal values of the same stimuli had the expected effects on patterns of brain activation. These findings are the strongest evidence yet obtained against the existence of paranormal mental phenomena.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Many traditional Mahayana, and modern Tibetan, Buddhist texts relate meditation attainment to psychic ability. This teaching served as the hypothesis—that more advanced meditators would choose a psi target correctly, significantly more often than beginners. A basic free-response design was used in which a computer programme (PreCOG) chose a target picture at random from a 4-picture set. There were 25 sets, all pictures of Tibet. PreCOG guided the participants through the procedure, in which they aimed to become aware of the target. 18 participants, Tibetan monks, nuns and Western Buddhist meditators, completed 8 sessions each. Half the sessions used a clairvoyance, and half a precognition, protocol.
Age and years of meditation practice correlated significantly with the psi scores (Pearson r = 0.52, p , 0.05). This suggests that, as one practices meditation, psychic awareness begins to manifest more reliably. This result was confounded by a non-significant psi-missing trend. There was no significant difference between the clairvoyance and precognition trials (t-diff (142) = 0.800). There was, however, significant psi-missing from the group of Rinpoches (t = 2.09, 2tail p < 0.05). The three participants who scored most strongly in the psi-missing direction all reported childhood memories of previous lives as monks in Tibet.
