Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The purpose of our study was to provide answers to the following questions:
1) Do sessions of psychotherapy with an emotional content have more hormonal surges than relaxation-only sessions?
2) Are surges of different hormones associated?
3) Are hormonal responses related to the intensity, type, or mode of expression of the emotions?
Methods: Thirteen volunteers and 12 patients with minor emotional difficulties were studied under hypnosis. There were two types of sessions - "blank and "free associations” (FA).
Results: Sessions of FA had more hormonal surges than "blank". This was true for cortisol (8/17 v.3/24; p < 0.03), prolactin (PRL) (7/17 v. 3/24; p < 0.05) and growth hormone (GH) (9/17 v. 4/24; p < 0.02). During the 55 sessions of FA there were 32 surges of cortisol, 18 of PRL and 28 of GH. Cortisol and PRL surges were negatively correlated (p < 0.03). GH was not associated with either cortisol or PRL. Intense emotions were associated with GH surges (p < 0.05). but not with cortisol or PRL. Cortisol surges were correlated positively with evocations of real events (p<0.01) and with the unexpected re-enacting of long-forgotten traumatic experiences (p< 0.02). PRL correlated with memories of humiliating experiences (p<0.07).
Conclusions: Cortisol, PRL and GH respond to psychological stress in humans. Cortisol and PRL surges are alternative responses to specific emotions. Neither relates to the intensity of the evoked emotion. Cortisol surges occur when a connection between the emotion and its cognitive component is established. Prolactin surges may be adaptive to unavoidable suffering. GH surges depend on the intensity of the emotion, probably as a consequence of the associated muscular activity.

Cortisol, prolactin and growth hormone responses to emotions elicited during an hypnoidal state

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The present study describes the responses of cortisol, prolactin and growth hormone (GH) to emotions elicited during sessions in which an hypnoidal state was induced. The purpose of the study was to provide answers for the following questions: 1) Do sessions with an emotional content have more hormonal surges than baseline, relaxation-only, sessions? 2) Does the induction of a fantasy of pregnancy and nursing elicit a prolactin response? 3) Are there any associations between surges of different hormones? 4) Are hormonal responses related to the intensity, type, or mode of expression of the emotions? For this purpose, thirteen volunteers and twelve patients with minor emotional difficulties were studied during sessions under hypnosis. The period of observation lasted for about three hours. Heart rate (HR), skin conductance (SC) and vagal tone (VT) were monitored. Serum cortisol, prolactin and growth hormone were sampled every 15 minutes. The volunteers had three types of sessions— “blank”, consisting of relaxation only (12 sessions), “breast feeding”, in which a fantasy of pregnancy and breast feeding was induced (12 sessions) and “free associations” in which the subjects were encouraged to evoke experiences or feelings (17 sessions). The patients had only sessions of free associations (38 sessions). Sessions of free associations had more hormonal surges than “blank” and “breast feeding” sessions. This was true for cortisol (8/17 v.3/24; p < 0.03), prolactin (7/17 v. 3/24; p < 0.05) and GH (9/17 v. 4/24; p < 0.02). During the 55 sessions of free associations (volunteers plus patients) there were 32 surges of cortisol, 18 of prolactin and 28 of GH. Cortisol and prolactin surges were negatively correlated (p < 0.03). GH had no significant association with either cortisol or prolactin. Visible emotions were positively associated with GH surges (p < 0.05). but not with cortisol or prolactin. Cortisol surges were correlated positively with evocations of real events (p < 0.01) and negatively with evocations containing defensive elements (p < 0.01). Cortisol correlated positively with shock and intimidation (p < 0.02) and negatively with rage (p < 0.04). The AUC of the cortisol peaks during shock and intimidation was significantly higher than that of the pool of all other cortisol peaks (12.4 µmol.min.l-1 v. 7.1 µmol.min.l-1; p < 0.005). Rage had a marginally significant positive association with prolactin surges (p=0.07). The distribution of GH surges did not show any significant association with types of emotions.
The present study provides evidence that cortisol, prolactin and GH respond to psychological stress in humans. However, they are regulated differently from one another. Cortisol and prolactin surges appear to be alternative forms of response to specific emotions. GH surges depend on the intensity of the emotion, probably as a consequence of the associated muscular activity. The current paradigm of stress, implying corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH) as the initial step of a cascade of events, is insufficient to account for the diversity of hormonal changes observed in psychological stress in humans.

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: RESULTS:
Most mothers had a moderate to high bonding toward the infant from pregnancy
to 3 months after childbirth, nonetheless maternal bonding was generally better
immediately after childbirth - higher positive bonding and total bonding means and
lower negative bonding scores - than during pregnancy or at 3 months postpartum.
During pregnancy, mood but not hormones influenced maternal bonding. Mothers
with depressive mood had lower positive bonding results, higher negative bonding
results as well as higher not clear bonding results. Mothers with higher anxiety levels
had less positive bonding results, more negative bonding results and showed a worse
total bonding.
In the first days after childbirth, both mood and hormones influenced maternal
bonding. Mothers with higher cortisol levels had a better bonding toward the infant,
mothers with depressive mood had lower positive bonding results and mothers with
higher anxiety levels had more negative bonding results.
At 3 months after childbirth, again mood but not hormones influenced maternal
bonding. Depressed mothers showed more negative emotions and not clear emotions
and had a worse bonding toward the infant, as well as mothers with higher anxiety
showed more negative bonding results and more not clear bonding results and a worse
bonding with the infant. No differences are found regarding cortisol levels.
We conclude that psycho-physiological more than obstetrical factors seem to interfere
in maternal bonding both during pregnancy and after childbirth. This fact leads us to
think about the importance of attending to maternal mood in clinical context starting
during pregnancy through the first months after childbirth in order to guarantee the
mothers’ and infants’ quality of life.

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:
Recently implemented social and technological changes have several implications
for the parental behavior toward the baby, but its repercussions on the parental emotional
involvement and care still need to be investigated. Maternal attachment toward the infant, a
unique emotional long-term relationship, gradually established from the mother’s first contact
with the baby, is a process of mutual adaptation in which the mother and the baby actively
participate, as the present article clarify. This theoretical study is essentially aimed to the fundamental
question of “what may stimulate or promote the parental attachment with the baby?”.
It intents to implement our knowledge about the dimensions involved on the initial parental
attachment with the baby, particularly to light out the importance of the hormonal factors, as
the contribution of these have not be sufficiently tacked in account on the maternal attachment
process. More factors are also considered, such as: the type of delivery, the delivery pain and
the methods used to reduce it, the mother-infant separation at birth, and the newborn’s interactive
competency and availability.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
PART 1
Baseline questionnaires showed that patients in both sleep disorder groups had significantly higher levels of anxiety and sleep disturbance and lower levels of general health compared with normal sleepers; the insomnia group had significantly higher depression ratings. Absolute levels of morning salivary cortisol were higher in both sleep disordered groups than in controls. Insomnia patients and parasomnia patients on ‘good’ nights had higher waking cortisol levels than controls, and similar levels to controls at 30min post waking. There was a variable response on parasomnia ‘bad’ nights with most patients waking with higher cortisol levels and some even having a fall rather than a rise 30 minutes after waking. Cortisol levels on awakening showed higher variability in those subjects reporting anxiety dreams during the night. We demonstrated
a significant relationship between cortisol levels and subjective measures of poor sleep quality. Occurrence of episodes of parasomnia was associated with awakening cortisol response unlike that of controls and insomnia patients.
PART2
The automatic sampling system was reliable and effective in obtaining frequent blood cortisol samples without interfering with sleep. Cortisol levels fell during the first few hours of sleep and then showed a rise independent of sleep stage about halfway through the night, consistent with the literature. In addition, both awakenings and REM sleep tended to increase cortisol level. There was evidence of both circadian and sleep-stage-dependent regulation of night-time cortisol level. Awakening cortisol response was detected in both plasma and saliva samples but the size of the response was different using the 2 methods.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
Part 1 - to compare morning salivary cortisol response, sleep questionnaires and dream reports between patients with parasomnias, normal subjects and patients with insomnia.
Part 2 – to pilot the use of automatic blood sampling overnight for cortisol assay synchronized with polysomnography in 6 normal subjects, to assess the minute by minute effect of sleep stage on cortisol measures, and to compare morning dream reports with plasma cortisol and salivary cortisol on awakening.
METHODS:
Part 1 - patients with sleep disorders and healthy good sleepers were provided with a pack containing
cotton swabs for saliva sampling and overnight sleep and dreaming questionnaires. Patients with parasomnias were sent sample kits for 2 nights, 1 with and 1 without an episode (eg night terror). 16 patients and 15 healthy good sleepers returned the packs and salivary cortisol concentration was measured in-house using radio-immunoassay.
Part 2 - 6 healthy volunteers slept in the sleep laboratory. An automated sampling machine has been developed at Bristol University to minimise interference with study subjects when taking blood samples. They were prepared for polysomnography (PSG) and had an indwelling cannula connected ‘through the wall’ to the sampling machine. Blood samples (1ml) were taken every 10 minutes, synchronised with the PSG recording. Samples were later assayed for cortisol. Sleep was scored and the cortisol levels related to different sleep stages.
RESULTS:
Part 1- morning cortisol response was as expected in healthy normal sleepers with a rise between waking
and 30 minutes later. Insomnia patients and parasomnia patients on a ‘good’ night had a similar response with both readings being slightly higher. On the ‘bad’ nights readings were very variable with no consistent rise between the 2 time periods. Waking cortisol levels correlated with complaints of waking too early. Dream report analysis will be presented.
Part 2 – synchronized hypnograms and cortisol profiles will be presented. Cortisol levels fell during the first few hours of sleep and then showed a rise independent of sleep stage about halfway through the night, consistent with the literature. In addition, both awakenings and REM sleep tended to increase cortisol level. Awakening cortisol response occurred from any stage of sleep and at any time of day.
CONCLUSIONS:
Part 1 - Insomnia and parasomnia subjects had higher cortisol levels than controls but this was not
statistically significant. However we demonstrated a significant relationship between cortisol levels and subjective measures of sleep quality and early awakening. Dreaming effects will be discussed.
Part 2 – The automatic sampling method was reliable and effective in obtaining frequent cortisol samples without interfering with sleep. There was evidence of both circadian and sleep-stage-dependent regulation of night-time cortisol level.
