BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
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.

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:
In our day-to-day experiences consecutive courses of actions and thoughts need to be controlled to allow the execution of goal-directed actions. Action control is exerted through cortical action selection mechanisms in the prefrontal cortex that allow the selection or suppression of actions according to the environmental demands. The right inferior frontal cortex (rIFC) plays a pre-eminent and crucial role in action selection and inhibition in humans. The aim of the project was to investigate how the rIFC exerts its influence over action responses and whether this influence can be changed by inducing plasticity of the corticocortical pathways mediating response inhibition in the human brain. We performed 4 studies in which we investigated the influence of repetitive paired associative transcranial magnetic stimulation (repetitive ppTMS) on the corticocortical excitability and oscillatory dynamics of the rIFC-M1 pathway. In all four studies, participants performed a Go/Nogo task in two task blocks, baseline and expression. Between the baseline and the expression blocks, we applied the same paired associative stimulation (PAS) protocol at 0.1Hz for 15minutes, which is known to strengthen connectivity between pre-motor and motor cortex. The results of the studies 1 and 2 confirmed state-dependent changes in the motor-evoked potentials after the plasticity induction phase. In the go trials the paired PMv-M1 stimulation led to a facilitatory influence of PMv over M1. Additionally, the plasticity effect was dependent on stimulation order: repeated stimulation of PMv before M1 led to strengthening of the PMv–M1 pathway, while these effects were not present when M1 was stimulated before PMv. In parallel, the results of the studies 3 and 4 showed state-dependent changes in cortical oscillatory dynamics in the beta and theta frequencies, that were also dependent on stimulation order: repeated stimulation of PMv before M1 led to decreases in the beta band and increases in the theta band, whereas the opposite was true when stimulation of M1 preceded PMv stimulation.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The dual nature of touch has long been understood. The sense of touch seems to carry information at the same time about the external object touching our skin, and also about our body itself. However, how these two interact has remained obscure. We present an analytic model of how tactile information interacts with mental body representations in the brain. Four such interactions are described: the link between the body surface and the maps in primary somatosensory cortex, the contribution of somatosensory cortical information to mental body representations, the feedback pathway from such higher representations back to primary tactile processing in somatosensory cortex, and the modulation of tactile object perception by mental body representations.
