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:
With this work we tried to evaluate a hypothetic increase of paranormal capacities (clairvoyance, telepathy and precognition) among psychotherapists considering that their clinical practice might be a kind of training for such capacities.
We also tried to find an association between such capacities and changes on brain electrical activity.
For this purpose a group of 23 psychotherapists was evaluated and compared with a control group. Both groups were evaluated for clairvoyance, telepathy and premonition.
Results seem to adjust to what should be expected if subjects answered randomly.
Subjects showed no consistent results in the different experimental tasks.
Results showed no significant difference between both groups in what concerns the parapsychologic phenomena under evaluation.
No important EEG changes were found.
No evidence was found suggesting that psychotherapeutic practice might be a valid training for telepathy, clairvoyance or premonition.
About 80% of subjects said having experienced or having been testimonies of some kind of paranormal occurrence.

A meta-analysis of forced-choice experiments comparing clairvoyance and precognition
Publication year: 1998
URL:
http://www.biomedsearch.com/article/meta-analysis-forced-choice-experiments/54194992.html
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This meta-analysis examined a database of studies published in the main parapsychology journals from 1935-1997 that compared outcomes of precognition and clairvoyance trials under relatively similar experimental conditions. Both the precognition and clairvoyance studies had a statistically significant cumulated overall effect but there was no evidence to suggest that clairvoyance worked better than precognition, with the mean effect sizes (z/[N.sup.1/2]) of the two types of ESP in the 22 study pairs being very similar at 0.010 for precognition and 0.009 for clairvoyance. There were no statistically significant correlations between the presence of procedural safeguards and effect size and hence no suggestion that methodological problems had played any strong and obvious role in the overall effects, although the small database would be expected to provide relatively low statistical power for detecting any such effects. None of the planned analyses examining the effects of potential moderator variables upon effect size were statistically significant but a post-hoc ANOVA indicated a statistically significant interaction, F (1, 16) = 15.04, p = .001. between whether the trials were precognitive or clairvoyant and how the two types of trial were interspersed (separated into studies or mixed within a study). Being a post-hoc result and one of many analyses performed, this finding may not be meaningful. Equally, however, the general lack of significant findings does not conclusively indicate a lack of genuine relationships, given the low statistical power in the database. In case low power had in fact been a problem in identifying moderator variables, contrast between groups in effect size alone, regardless of the statistical significance of the difference was used as a criterion to identify promising variables to examine or exploit in future research. These variables and suggestions for future research are discussed.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A survey of anomalous/paranormal experiences was carried out in two groups: readers of paranormal issues (RPT) (n= 432) and psychology undergraduate students (n=392). A questionnaire was devised in order to measure type and frequency of experiences and the degree of disturbance they generated. Over two thirds of the RPT respondents and half of the student respondents reported to have had telepathic experiences, ESP dreams, out-of-the-body experiences, and to have had spiritual contact. Almost two thirds of the respondents indicated that at least one of their experiences had been disturbing. Particularly, undergradiate students sample reported experiences such as poltergeist (p< .001) and spiritual possession (p=.0002) compared with RPT sample. An average significantly greater of experiences was obtained in RPT than the one for the students (M= 6.12 vs. 3.19, pdif <.0001).

The 'sense of being stared at' does not depend on known sensory clues

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The "sense of being stared at" can be investigated by means of simple experiments in which subjects and lookers work in pairs, with the looker sitting behind the subject. In a random sequence of trials, the looker either looks at the back of the subject, or looks away and thought of something else. More than 15,000 trials have already been conducted, involving more than 700 subjects, with an extremely significant excess of correct over incorrect guesses (Sheldrake [1999]). This effect was still apparent in experiments in which subjects were blindfolded and given no feedback, showing it did not depend on visual clues, nor on the subjects knowing if their guesses were right or wrong (Sheldrake [2000]). In this paper I describe experiments I conducted in schools in England in which the subjects were not only blindfolded and given no feedback, but looked at through closed windows. There was again a very significant excess of correct over incorrect guesses (p<0.004). At my request, teachers in Canada, Germany and the United States carried out similar experiments and found an even more significant positive effect than in my own experiments (p< 0.0002). The fact that positive results were still obtained when visual clues had been effectively eliminated by blindfolds, and auditory and olfactory clues by closed windows, implies that the sense of being stared at does not depend on the known senses. I conclude that peoples' ability to know when they are being looked at depends on an influence at present unknown to science.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The main expectation of this experiment was to explore the binary random number generator hit rate region above 60%. Given the strong and stable correlation of AC with the gradient of Shannon entropy and given the evidence that RNG results arise from AC rather than some force-like interaction, we thought that high gradient binary sequences would be “easier” to obtain in a psi-mediated selection task.
Fourteen subjects participated in formal trials in this study and contributed a total of approximately 4,600 individual trials of 200 binary bits each. We found that the selection of high entropy sequences was no more likely than for low entropy sequences. Thus the initial hypothesis was not confirmed.
However, this experiment indicated an exciting path for a future experiment. In the AC studies that do show a correlation with the gradient of Shannon entropy, the main feature is that feedback to the subject also has the gradient information embedded in the display. We noticed, too late for the experiment, that the feedback of even high gradient sequences was a display who’s visual gradient was always quite low. That is a “wiggly” line graph has low visual display gradient regardless of the gradient of the underlying driving sequence. If individuals make psi-like decisions on the bases of the gradient they experience, then we would expect the observed null result.

Title:
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: RESULTS:
This study involved 25 ganzfeld telepathy sessions with musicians (including people with five years or more of musical training) and 25 psi sessions with non musicians (those with less than five years of training). The experiment made use of a “sender” and “receiver” model in which the receiver of psi information was placed in a sensory restricted environment and asked to describe a randomly selected target viewed by a sender in another location. EEG data were collected using a 28-channel electrode-cap connected to NeuroScan SynAMP digital amplifiers. Data were recorded on disk and analyzed offline using NeuroScan SCAN 4.0 software. Skin conductance data were also recorded. Both subjects and experimenters served as judges.
There were three hypotheses: There would be an overall psi effect across subjects, musicians would score higher than non-musicians in the psi task, and musicians would display a distinctive psychophysiological profile as compared to non-musicians.
While we did not find overall significant evidence of psi, the effect size was within the range expected for ganzfeld studies with unselected subjects (30% hit rate for subject judging and 35% for experimenter judging).
No significant difference was found between musicians and nonmusicians, with a reverse trend identified, and no distinctive psychophysiological profile was found for musicians. A significant gender difference was found, with women scoring significantly better than men. Additional analyses are under way with the EEG and skin conductance data.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Critics of survival research often claim that the survival hypothesis is conceptually problematic at best, and literally incoherent at worst. The guiding intuition behind their skepticism is that there’s an essential link between the concept of a person (or personality or experience) and physical embodiment.
Thus (they argue), since by hypothesis postmortem individuals such as ostensible mediumistic communicators have no physical body, there’s something wrong with the very idea of a postmortem person, personality or experience. However, critics can’t simply beg the question and assert that physical embodiment is essential to personhood, personality, or experience, because the evidence suggesting survival is a prima facie challenge to the contrary. On the other hand, defenders of ostensible mediumistic communication need to explain how postmortem awareness and knowledge of the current physical world can occur without a physical body that experiences the world and represents it accurately enough to ground veridical postmortem reports. This paper will fi rst consider why survivalists face potentially serious problems in trying to make sense of apparent postmortem perception. Then it will consider a plausible—and arguably the only—way to deal with the issues. However, that solution turns out to be a double-edged sword. Ironically, the best way to deal with the problem of perspectival postmortem awareness may render the survival hypothesis gratuitous.

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.
