Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
"Toh-ate" is a traditional Japanese martial art requiring special skill of its practitioners. Toh-ate is a non-contact attack by one person against another when the two are separated at a distance. In our previous studies with qigong or martial arts practitioners, a few exceptional subjects showed anomalous signal transmission in time coincidence of subjects' motions or physiological change even if in two separated rooms with each in a double blinded condition (Yamamoto et al. 1996, Chen et al. 2002.). In the present study, we researched the generality of this phenomenon by examining responses of plural veteran pairs. Subjects were 3 pairs of trainees of Japanese martial arts and 3 pairs of trainees of Chinese qigong. As control, 6 other pairs participated; these persons had no martial arts training. Receiver and Sender were put in separate rooms with communicational deprivation. The Receiver was seated in a Faraday cage and the Sender performed only one sending motion per 80-sec trial on double blinded and randomized conditions. The timing of each subject’s motions and physiological factors were recorded. Physiological analyses showed that no anomalous changes of the average gradient of skin temperature of the Receiver's palm were observed around the sending time. Also there was no difference between practitioners of the Japanese and Chinese arts. Regarding time coincidence, Japanese martial arts subjects showed no anomalous results although 4 of them were considered to have abilities for toh-ate to some degree (Kokubo et al. 2003). Two pairs of Chinese qigong practitioners showed 5% significance peaks at +11 sec, but no anomalous peak at 0 sec.
The results suggested that it is difficult to get good results if subjects do not have a sufficient career in a particular martial art or qigong school.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The present experiments focus on the skills involved in the traditional Japanese martial art called "toh-ate". Toh-ate is a non-contact attack by one person against another when the two are separated by some distance. For the experiments, 6 pairs of veteran practitioners of martial arts participated. Three pairs were practitioners of Japanese martial arts and the other pairs were practitioners of Chinese qigong. As control, 6 pairs (non-trainees) participated; these persons had no martial arts training. Two subjects of a pair were put in separate rooms with communicational deprivation and the experimenters measured physiological changes of one of the two, acting as a Receiver, when the other, acting as a Sender, attempted to make a remote attack on the Receiver at a distance. The Receiver was seated in a Farady cage and the Sender performed only one "sending" motion per 80-second trial on double blinded and randomized conditions. When the Sender or Receiver pushed a switch as the event marker, output signals were produced. The signals were recorded as the sending time or the response time, along with physiological data, by recorders. No anomalous changes of average gradient of skin temperature of the Receiver's palm were observed around the sending time. Totally 797 data were available for analyses of time coincidence between motions of the Sender and Receiver. There was no significant coincidence at time-difference is 0sec. However, two pairs of Chinese qigong practitioners showed 5% significance peaks at +11sec. If these delay peaks were caused by toh-ate, their sending performances were longer than several seconds.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
These two studies employ the cognitive DMILS protocol in Bali, Indonesia, first introduced by Braud, Schafer, McNeill, and Guerra (1995) and replicated by Brady and Morris (1997). The psi task consisted in a person in one room (Helper) facilitating the attention focusing meditation of a person in another room (Helpee). A computer in the Helper’s room randomly selected the order of tasks for the Helper in each pair of periods, (resulting in 8 Help and 8 Control periods). During the Help periods, the Helper focused attention on a lighted candle and intended for the Helpee to increase her focus on a lighted candle in her room, while not meditation during the Control periods. The primary hypothesis, confirmed by both previous studies, was that the sum of button presses (indicating the mind had wandered) in the Control conditions would be significantly greater than in the Help condition. Two studies were carried out in Bali to see whether meditation training had a positive effect on the psi results.
In Study 1, Suryani trained 20 unpaid participants in meditation for two and a half months. Twenty untrained participants brought the total number of participants to 40. These were divided into 10 teams of 4, with two trained and two untrained participants in each group. Each session had 4 runs, one with two trained participants, one with two untrained participants, one with a trained Helper and an untrained Helpee, and one with an untrained Helper and a trained Helpee. The primary hypothesis was supported by there being fewer button presses in the Help condition than the Control condition (t(37)=2.151, p<.025, one-tailed, Cohen’s d=.36, power(at beta=.2)=.33). Analysis suggested that the greatest psi success occurred with trained Helpers and high need untrained Helpees.
Study 2 used 30 unpaid participants meeting the conditions above. 60 runs were carried out, again yielding significant results, t(119)=3.161, p<.005 (one-tailed), d=.21, power = .29. However, the significant results do not seem to have derived from using meditation as a variable.

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: ABSTRACT:
Two cognitive DMILS studies were carried out in Bali to pursue the question of whether a controlled experimental test could achieve positive results in a non-industrial culture. The task was to see if one person could help another person be more successful in focus meditation. In the first study, half of the participants were trained in meditation on a lit candle to see if meditation training affected the results. Overall, there were significantly fewer button presses in the Help period as opposed to the Control period, t (34) = 2.16, p < .02, one-tailed, Cohen's r = .35, power = .55. Since the most successful condition resulted from Helpers trained in meditation and Helpees who were not trained and who said that they were easily distracted, we pursued this set of conditions in Study 2. Again, we achieve significant results in the predicted direction, t (52) = 2.24, p < .02, one-tailed, Cohen's r = .30, power = .59. These results suggest that experimental parapsychology can be pursued productively in a nonindustrial culture if carried out in a culturally sensitive way.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The grant funded two DMILS studies and a comparison of Balinese and American responses on the BVCQ.
1) One part of our grant continued our successful DMILS work from a previous grant, introducing changes to our protocol trying to understand the processes involved in behavioural DMILS. The first study compared the performance of trained meditators to traditional Balinese healers (Balian) in their ability to help a sensorily isolated person in their focus meditation.
A total of 40 runs were carried out, half with Balian and half with meditators.
We found no overall difference between presses in the control condition (mean = 2.6, SD = 2.46) and help condition (mean = 2.5, SD = 2.21), t(39) = 0.44, ns, two-tailed, d = .05, power = .05. We also found a no significant difference in the psi scores between the meditators and Balians, t(38) = 1.74, p = .09, two-tailed, d = .56, power = .39.
2) The second DMILS study used trained Resident Interns in Psychiatry as Helpers. We also measured heart rate variability of Helpees to determine if HRV was a more sensitive measure of psi functioning than pressing a button. 80 runs were carried out. Again, there was no significant psi effect (Control (M = 3.07, SD = 2.57), Help (M = 2.91, SD = 3.04), t(68) = 0.61, ns, one-tailed).
3) A comparison of Balinese and American responses on the Balinese Volitional Competency Questionnaire yielded a number of differences. Most significant among these was support that the Balinese employ secondary control (the person tries to fit in with the world and "flow" with it) that is tied closely with collectivism, while American responses indicated primary agency (people attempt to change the world so that it conforms to their needs and desires) that is correlated with individualism.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In spite of the great diversity among the world’s cultures, each of them reports parapsychological phenomena; however, few controlled experiments have been performed to test these claims, and these experiments have yielded inconsistent results. Therefore, during 2002-3, two cognitive DMILS studies were carried out in Bali, Indonesia, to test whether an experiment based on a protocol employed in the US and in Scotland could achieve positive results in a very different, non-EuroAmerican culture.
The psi task consisted of one person (Helper) in one room trying to help another person (Helpee) in a second room to achieve success in their focus meditation. Helpees were asked to press a button each time their mind wandered from their focus meditation, and then to commence their focus meditation, again; these presses were recorded on a computer.
Each run consisted of 8 one-minute Help periods randomly counterbalanced with 8 one-minute Control periods. Psi success was measured by comparing the button presses in the Help and Control conditions.
In the first study, half of the forty unpaid participants (ages 23-48, 16 females, and 24 males) were trained in meditating on a lit candle to investigate if meditation training improved psi success in this task. Ten groups of four were run; within each group, meditators and non-meditators were paired in counterbalanced conditions. Significance was achieved overall, with fewer button presses in the Help period as opposed to the Control period, t(37) = 2.151, p < .025, one-tail, Cohen’s d = .36, power =.33). Questionnaires were given to elicit their ability to focus in daily life and during the experiment.
Since the most successful condition resulted from Helpers who were trained in meditation paired with Helpees who were not trained, and who said that they were easily distracted, we pursued this set of conditions in Study 2. Each Helper was a practiced meditator, while each Helpee was not a meditator but was someone who was easily distracted and therefore needed help in focusing. Thirty unpaid volunteers, ages 23-45, participated (16 Females, 14 males). The Study consisted of 60 runs over a five day period. Again, we achieved significant results t(59) = 2.23, p < .02, one-tailed, Cohen’s d = .21, power = .20. These effect
sizes were similar to those in the experiments carried out in the US and Scotland.

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.

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.

Title:
Can we help just by good intentions? A meta-analysis of experiments on distant intention effects

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
In recent years, several clinical trials have assessed effects of distant healing. The basic question raised by these studies is whether a positive distant intention can be related to some outcome in a target person. There is a specific simple experimental setup that tests such a basic assumption. The task is to focus attention and to indicate unwanted mind wandering by a button press while at the same time a second remote person is either supporting this performance or not according to a randomized schedule. A meta-analysis was conducted to assess the overall effect of this experimental approach.
METHODS:
A systematic literature search yielded 11 eligible studies, with 576 single sessions and almost identical design, that were conducted on three different continents. Study parameters were extracted and combined with a random-effects model.
RESULTS:
The model yielded an overall effect size of d=0.11 (p=0.03). Furthermore, there was a significant difference of the frequency of button presses between studies conducted in Indonesia and the Western hemisphere (p<0.001). Two (2) similar experimental setups applying electrodermal activity as dependent variable meta-analyzed earlier showed almost identical effect sizes. This can be considered as mutual validation of the three data sets.
CONCLUSIONS:
The hypothesis of the positive effect of benevolent intentions is supported by the data presented. It is concluded that especially the intentional aspect common to all three different tasks may be responsible for these unorthodox findings. These finding may have implications for distant healing research and health care as well as for meditation performance.
