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.

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:
An adaptation paradigm was used for Experiment 1 (N=40 in final sample), where fear-neutral morphed expressions were classified for affect after exposure to either fear or neutral faces. There was a shift towards ‘fearful’ classifications of morphs following neutral compared to fear adaptation. ERP data analysis revealed a more pronounced late positive potential (LPP), beginning at ~400 ms post-stimulus onset, in high but not low anxious people following neutral compared to fear adaptation. As behavioural adaptation increased there was a linear augmentation in the magnitude of the late-LPP. These effects were apparent for trait and state anxiety, and for depression. These data show that negative moods are associated with increased sensitivity to visual contextual influences from top-down elaborative modulations, as reflected in an enhanced LPP deflection. In two oddball experiments, irrelevant emotional expressions were presented outside of (Experiment 2, N=13 in final sample) or within (Experiment 3, N=15 in final sample ) focal attention. The neurophysiological markers for emotional processing (LPP, Early Posterior Negativity [EPN]) were observed when the irrelevant emotional expressions were the focus of attention (Experiment 3) but eliminated when outside of focal attention (Experiment 3). The visual mismatch negativity (vMMN), said to index automatic encoding violations of visual featural regularities, was observed for unattended happy emotional expressions but not for fearful ones. The ‘pre-attentive’ encoding of featural changes arose only for happy faces and not for other less featurally salient expressions, such as fear. These data suggest that spatial attention is involved in the direct modulation of non-perceptual processes relating to the evaluation of emotional significance.

Adaptation effects of emotional expressions in anxiety: Evidence for an enhanced late positive potential
Publication year: 2010

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Prolonged exposure to a stimulus biases perception of a subsequent stimulus away from the adapting stimulus (Clifford & Rhodes, 2005). These aftereffects have been observed with a wide variety of stimuli, including facial identity (Rhodes & Jeffery, 2006) and emotional facial expression (e.g., Webster et al., 2004). In the current experiment, we used this paradigm to examine the effect of anxiety on the perception of emotional expression. Photographs of a male and a female model from the Karolinska Directed Emotional Faces set (KDEF; Lundqvist et al. 1998) were selected and a series of morphs created by interpolating a fear exemplar with a neutral exemplar for each model. A pilot study established a range of morphed expressions falling on either side of the fear/neutral boundary, and these were then used in the main study. There were 16 adaptation blocks in the experiment proper, and each block began with an adapting phase in which participants viewed (and categorized) 35 presentations of one endpoint from the morph continuum. This was immediately followed by a test phase, during which participants viewed and categorized 33 images of the same model (8 dummy trials, 5 top-up trials and 20 test trials – 10 from either side of the categorical boundary). We predicted that all test trials would be perceived as having an emotional expression opposite to that of the adapting stimulus (e.g., adaptation to fear would produce ‘neutral’ classifications for the test stimuli that were originally on the ‘fear’ side of the boundary). EEG was recorded using a NeuroScan NuAmps system, and stimulus presentation was controlled using E-Prime. An analysis of the behavioural classification data revealed that adaptation to fear created a shift in the classification of morphs towards ‘neutral’ and adaptation to neutral created a shift towards ‘fear’. This shift was equivalent in high and low anxiety. An analysis of the ERP data, however, revealed a more pronounced late positive potential in the high, but not the low, anxiety group following adaptation to neutral compared to fear, and this effect was particularly enhanced for male than female expressions.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
An adaptation paradigm was used to examine the effect of context on emotional expression processing in anxiety. We predicted that fear/neutral morphs would be more likely to be classified as ‘fearful’ following neutral adaptation and ‘neutral’ following fearful adaptation. We examined several ERP components (P1, EPN and the LPP) in order to investigate the time course of differential processes involved in ambiguity resolution and whether these effects are modulated by anxiety.
METHODS:
A male and a female model were selected and fear/neutral morphs created. Participants classified test trials following adaptation to the fear or neutral exemplar. 16 test blocks were presented, and participants classified the emotional expression of each test trial. EEG was recorded using a NeuroScan NuAmmps system, and stimulus presentation was controlled using EPrime. The high temporal resolution of the EEG technique enabled us to examine the locus of the expression aftereffects in anxiety. Several ERP components were examined to see if they were modulated by anxiety.
RESULTS:
There was a shift in the behavioural classification of morphs towards ‘fear’ following adaptation to the neutral exemplar compared to adaptation to the fear exemplar, and this shift was equivalent for high and low anxiety. The behavioural analysis revealed that the female face was classified as being fearful more often at baseline and following neutral adaptation compared to the male face. An analysis of the ERP data, however, revealed a more pronounced late positive potential, beginning at ~400 ms post-stimulus onset, in the high but not the low anxiety group following adaptation to neutral compared to fear.
CONCLUSIONS:
These data support the proposal that high anxiety is associated with increased sensitivity to contextual influences from top-down elaborative modulations, as reflected in an enhanced late positive potential deflection. These data offer support for an increase in sensitivity to context in high anxiety.
DISCUSSION:
The adaptation paradigm combined with behavioural report and EEG is a useful technique for examining the effect of context on categorization of ambiguous information. These data reveal a late effect of context on categorization in anxiety.
