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.

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:
There is growing interest in the potential benefits of mindfulness meditation practices in terms of counteracting some of the cognitive effects associated with aging. Pursuing this question, the aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of mindfulness training on executive control and emotion regulation in older adults, by means of studying behavioral and electrophysiological changes. Participants, 55 to 75 years of age, were randomly allocated to an 8-week mindful breath awareness training group or an active control group engaging in brain training exercises. Before and after the training period, participants completed an emotional-counting Stroop task, designed to measure attentional control and emotion regulation processes. Concurrently, their brain activity was measured by means of 64-channel electroencephalography. The results show that engaging in just over 10 min of mindfulness practice five times per week resulted in significant improvements in behavioral (response latency) and electrophysiological (N2 event-related potential) measures related to general task performance. Analyses of the underlying cortical sources (Variable Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography, VARETA) indicate that this N2-related effect is primarily associated with changes in the right angular gyrus and other areas of the dorsal attention network. However, the study did not find the expected specific improvements in executive control and emotion regulation, which may be due to the training instructions or the relative brevity of the intervention. Overall, the results indicate that engaging in mindfulness meditation training improves the maintenance of goal-directed visuospatial attention and may be a useful strategy for counteracting cognitive decline associated with aging.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Negative emotional responses to the daily life stresses have cumulative effects which, in turn, impose wide-ranging negative constraints on emotional well being and neurocognitive performance (Kalueff and Nutt, 2007; Nadler et al., 2010; Charles et al., 2013). Crucial cognitive functions such as memory and problem solving, as well more short term emotional responses (e.g., anticipation of- and response to- monetary rewards or losses) are influenced by mood. The negative impact of these behavioral responses is felt at the individual level, but it also imposes major economic burden on modern healthcare systems. Although much research has been undertaken to understand the underlying mechanisms of depressed mood and design efficient treatment pathways, comparatively little was done to characterize mood modulations that remain within the boundaries of a healthy mental functioning. In one placebo-controlled experiment, we applied daily prefrontal transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) at five points in time, and found reliable improvements on self-reported mood evaluation. Using a new team of experimenters, we replicated this finding in an independent double-blinded placebo-controlled experiment and showed that stimulation over a shorter period of time (3 days) is sufficient to create detectable mood improvements. Taken together, our data show that repeated bilateral prefrontal tDCS can reduce psychological distress in non-depressed individuals.

Repeated transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in nondepressed reduces levels of reported negative affects from daily stressors

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Negative emotional responses to the daily life stresses have cumulative effects which, in turn, impose wide-ranging negative constraints on emotional well being and neurocognitive performance (Kalueff:2007cp, Charles:2013eq, Nadler:2010hk). Crucial cognitive functions such as memory and problem solving, as well more short term emotional responses (e.g., anticipation of- and response to- monetary rewards or losses) are influenced by mood. The negative impact of these behavioural responses is felt at the individual level, but it also imposes major economic burden on modern healthcare systems. Although much research have been undertaken to understand the underlying mechanisms of depressed mood and design efficient treatment pathways, comparatively little was done to characterize mood modulations that remain within the boundaries of a healthy mental functioning. In one placebo-controlled experiments, we applied daily prefrontal transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) at five points in time, and found reliable improvements on self-reported mood evaluation. We replicated this finding in an independent double-blinded placebo-controlled experiment and showed that stimulation over a shorter period of time (3 days) is sufficient to create detectable mood improvements. Taken together, our data show that repeated bilateral prefrontal tDCS can reduce psychological distress in nondepressed individuals.

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
C-tactile afferents (CTs) are a recently discovered class of unmyelinated, mechanosensitive nerve, found in the hairy skin of mammals. They respond optimally to slow moving gentle touch typical of caress. Their response strength is positively correlated with subjective ratings of touch pleasantness. It is hypothesised that CTs communicate the rewarding value of touch from conspecifics, providing the neurobiological basis for social support through physical contact.
AIMS
The project utilised psychophysiological and behavioural methods to investigate whether CT touch provides an innate social signal, capable of buffering stress responses.
METHOD
Experiment 1 examined the relationship between poor regulation of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), indicative of heightened stress, and preference for CT touch. ANS activity was measured using heart-rate variability (HRV) and, as with all experiments CT optimal (1-10cm/sec) and control speeds (<1 or >10 cm/sec) of touch were delivered by an automated robot.
In Experiment 2 stress was measured through startle eye-blink responses to a loud noise. The ability of CT touch to reduce these startle reflexes was compared to both control touch, and socially supportive imagery. In Experiment 3 stress was induced through a cognitively demanding task performed in front of the experimenter. Cardiac and electrodermal activity were measured during performance. Half the participants received CT optimal touch as the task progressed, while the other half received a non-CT-optimal control touch.
RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS
As hypothesised, those participants with low HRV showed significantly reduced sensitivity to the rewarding value of CT activating touch. Initial analyses also provide some indication CT activating touch may carry an innate stress buffering signal, supporting the belief that they underpin social support of mental and physical health through touch. However, further analysis is required to definitively support this conclusion.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The rewarding sensation of touch in affiliative interactions is hypothesised to be underpinned by a specialised system of nerve fibres called C-tactile afferents (CTs), which respond optimally to slowly moving, gentle touch, typical of a caress. In the current study we employed evaluative conditioning to examine whether CT activation carries an innate reward value. Participants rated the approachability of faces pre and post-conditioning. During conditioning, a subset of each participant’s most neutrally rated faces was paired with robotically delivered touch to their forearm. For half the faces touch was delivered at CT- optimal speed, 3cm/second. For the other half touch was delivered at a faster, CT-non- optimal speed, 30cm/second. Heart-rate was recorded during conditioning. A significant touch by time interaction was found. Whilst rated equally approachable pre-conditioning, post-conditioning faces that had been paired with CT-optimal touch were judged significantly more approachable than those paired with CT-non-optimal touch. CT-touch also caused greater heart-rate deceleration than CT-non-optimal touch, during conditioning. The results offer empirical evidence that CT-touch carries affective value which can be imbued to socially relevant stimuli. Our findings support the theory that CT-touch can reduce arousal levels, perhaps underpinning the role of CTs in social support.

Empathy and heart rate variability: a need and a mechanism of emotion regulation
Publication year: 2015

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
According to Polyvagal Theory (Porges, 2007), empathic and prosocial behaviours became possible through the arising of the myelinated vagus nerve in the mammalian autonomic nervous system, which plays a major role in the regulation of heart rate variability (HRV). High-frequency (HF) component of HRV constitute an index of cardiac vagal control. This study aims to examine how perceived empathy varies as a function of sex; how heart rate (HR) varies as a function of valence of a marital interaction task and sex; and, mostly, if perceived empathy is associated with HF, since both are associated with emotion regulation. Thirty heterosexual couples aged between 22 and 62 years old participated in this study. Women scored significantly higher in several of the empathy self-report measures used. Subjects showed significantly greater HR in the negative period compared to the positive period, and no effect of sex was found. In males, significant and positive associations between some empathy measures and HF were found. These findings suggest that empathy might not only be associated with vagal regulation of HF, but also with the subjects’ visceral perception, which is more accurate in men. Implications of these findings and directions for future research are discussed.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Study Objectives Mechanisms underlying the distress of hyperarousal in people with insomnia remain enigmatic. We investigated whether insomnia impedes the overnight adaptation to emotional distress.
Methods We induced the distressful self-conscious emotion of shame four times across three consecutive days by exposing 64 participants to their often embarrassingly out-of-tune singing, recorded earlier during a Karaoke session. Perceived physical, emotional, and social distress was assessed with the Experiential Shame Scale.
Results Compared to exposures followed by wakefulness, exposures followed by sleep resulted in overnight relief of physical component of shame in normal sleepers, but in a striking opposite overnight worsening in people with insomnia.
Conclusions Our findings are the first to experimentally show that the benefits of sleep are not only lost when sleep is poor; people with insomnia experience a maladaptive type of sleep that actually aggravates physically perceived distress. Maladaptive sleep could shed new light on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and on diurnal mood fluctuation and the counterintuitive favorable effects of sleep deprivation in depression.

O papel da regulação emocional e do estilo de vinculação na satisfação corporal de desportistas

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Body dissatisfaction has marked implications in an individual’s life and has been associated with the development of feeding and eating disorders. The literature points to the existence of associations between body satisfaction, emotion regulation, and the practice of physical activity, particularly the practice of sports that do not focus on body aesthetics. Thus, with this study, we intend to relate body satisfaction with the ability to regulate emotions, comparing athletes with non-athletes, and to explore associations between attachment styles, the ability to regulate emotions, and body satisfaction.
In this study, self-report measures were used to evaluate self-perception regarding body satisfaction, repertoire of emotion regulation, and attachment styles. Additionally, psychophysiological data was collected, during an experimental protocol, to more objectively explore the ability to regulate emotions.
The results of the present study suggest that a greater ability to regulate emotions (measured using psychophysiological data) and secure attachment styles are associated with greater body satisfaction.
This study brings further evidence for the relevance of teaching adaptive emotion regulation strategies as a way to prevent the incidence of eating disorders and weight-related attitudes, namely, body dissatisfaction.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Concealing memories and emotions associated with a traumatic event seems to have negative effects on health. Re-enacting those events through writing is an opportunity to disclosure such memories and emotions, and likely for emotion regulation. To study this, 57 university students were randomly assigned to one of two groups. They either completed an expressive writing or a neutral writing task. Real-time writing and psychophysiological data were recorded throughout the experiment to examine writing dynamics associated with emotion regulation and its psychophysiological correlates (EDA and ECG measures). Results showed that the expressive group paused for longer than the control group denotating a positive and medium effect size (?p
2 = .10). Furthermore, during and after writing the expressive group showed a higher LF/ HF ratio than the control group, evidencing a positive and large effect size (?p 2 = .22). These real-time findings are interpreted as signs of emotion regulation happening during writing.

Emotions, alexithymia and emotion regulation in patients with psoriasis
Publication year: 2020

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7248221/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psoriasis is a chronic dermatological condition that is frequently associated with problematic patterns of emotional reactivity (the way in which patients react to stimuli), alexithymia (their ability to recognize and label the emotional reaction), and emotion regulation (the ability to enhance or reduce their own emotional reaction). A research in the peer-reviewed scientific literature was conducted in order to identify articles describing the association of psoriasis and affective problems. In particular, we first evaluate studies that have investigated abnormal emotional reactivity (in terms of duration, frequency, or type of the experienced emotions) and its impact on patients’ quality of life; next, we review the role of alexithymia and emotion regulation in modulating the relationship between emotional reactivity and quality of life in this population. From a critical analysis of the reviewed studies, we highlight that altered emotional processing might be particularly important in the characterization of this condition. In particular, we show that this condition is related to an emotional reactivity characterized by negative emotions that have a stronger impact on patients’ quality of life when emotion regulation abilities are weak, especially if patients have alexithymia. Finally, we present suggestions for future directions in both clinical and research fields.

Publication year: 2022

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0149763422000720
Abstract/Results: This review synthesizes relations between mindfulness and resting-state fMRI functional connectivity of brain networks. Mindfulness is characterized by present-moment awareness and experiential acceptance, and relies on attention control, self-awareness, and emotion regulation. We integrate studies of functional connectivity and (1) trait mindfulness and (2) mindfulness meditation interventions. Mindfulness is related to functional connectivity in the default mode (DMN), frontoparietal (FPN), and salience (SN) networks. Specifically, mindfulness-mediated functional connectivity changes include (1) increased connectivity between posterior cingulate cortex (DMN) and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (FPN), which may relate to attention control; (2) decreased connectivity between cuneus and SN, which may relate to self-awareness; (3) increased connectivity between rostral anterior cingulate cortex region and dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (DMN) and decreased connectivity between rostral anterior cingulate cortex region and amygdala region, both of which may relate to emotion regulation; and lastly, (4) increased connectivity between dorsal anterior cingulate cortex (SN) and anterior insula (SN) which may relate to pain relief. While further study of mindfulness is needed, neural signatures of mindfulness are emerging.

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
Background: Patients with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) present difficulties in the cognitive regulation of emotions, possibly because of inefficient recruitment of distributed patterns of frontal cortex regions. The aim of the present study is to characterize the brain networks, and their dysfunctions, related with emotion regulation alterations observed during cognitive reappraisal in OCD.
Methods: Adult patients with OCD (n=31) and healthy controls (HC; n=30) were compared during performance of a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) cognitive reappraisal protocol. We used a free Independent Component Analysis (ICA) approach to analyze network-level alterations during emotional experience and regulation. Correlations with behavioral scores were also explored.
Results: Analyses were focused on 6 networks encompassing the frontal cortex. OCD patients showed decreased activation of the frontotemporal network in comparison with HC (F(1,58) = 7.81, p = 0.007) during cognitive reappraisal. A similar trend was observed in the left frontoparietal network (LFPN).
Conclusions: The present study demonstrates that patients with OCD show decreased activation of specific networks implicating the frontal cortex during cognitive reappraisal. These outcomes should help to better characterize the psychological processes modulating fear, anxiety, and other core symptoms of patients with OCD, as well as the associated neurobiological alterations, from a system-level perspective.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT
Background
Stress during pregnancy can increase physical and mental health risks in parents and offspring. Emotion regulation (ER) may protect against prenatal stress; however, ER is understudied in expectant parents, particularly expectant fathers. This study aimed to evaluate associations between ER strategies (reappraisal, suppression, ratio of suppression-to-reappraisal) and perceived stress among expectant parents, and also test whether expectant mothers and fathers differed in ER strategy use and perceived stress levels.
Methods
N = 83 expectant parents (62.7% mothers) in the third trimester completed measures assessing perceived stress,reappraisal, and suppression. ANCOVA, hierarchical regression, and multilevel models were used to evaluate associations between ER strategies and perceived stress, and test for sex differences.
Results
Controlling for age and education, lower reappraisal and higher suppression were associated with higher perceived stress; in addition, higher suppression-to-reappraisal ratios were associated with greater perceived stress. Mothers and fathers did not differ in perceived stress, reappraisal, or suppression; however, suppression-to-reappraisal ratios significantly differed.
Conclusion
Increasing ER skills such as reappraisal while reducing suppression may be beneficial for decreasing stress in expectant parents. Expectant fathers report similar levels of perceived stress to mothers and would benefit from prenatal mental health screening and intervention.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The present research aims to assess the impact of media exposure to standardized beauty ideals and how this affects body satisfaction and emotion regulation, considering four racial-ethnic categories in a group of young women in Portugal. To answer the research question and
investigate this impact, it was used self-report instruments compiled in a virtual questionnaire administered to 124 women between 18 and 39 years old. The main results point to a high level of media exposure and high body satisfaction, regardless of racial-ethnic category. Regarding
emotion regulation ability, the results show a frequency of emotional suppression as a prioritized strategy of emotion regulation. From a practical point of view, this exploratory study was conducted to fill the lack of studies in this area in Portugal and presents as future recommendations to prioritize increased research to implement strategies to mitigate the deleterious impact that the dissemination of beauty ideals may have on individuals of various racial-ethnic origins. This line of research seeks to raise awareness about the importance of literacy related to the risks and potentialities of media and its impact on body satisfaction in young women
