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.

Efeito da familiaridade na percepção temporal de faces humanas

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Três experimentos testam a hipótese da duração de estímulos familiares (exposição prévia) ser sobrestimada, no campo da percepção de faces humanas. A hipótese de sobrestimação foi abordada com uma tarefa de bissecção-temporal e com diferentes manipulações de familiaridade (subliminar, supraliminar: repetição prévia ou associada à tarefa). A análise dos dados revela sistematicamente um enviesamento das funções psicofísicas com base na familiaridade: respostas mais longas são dadas a estímulos mais familiares. Esta sobrestimação não é homogénea ao longo da linha temporal, dissipando-se nos intervalos mais longos. Discutem-se 3 possíveis explicações para estes dados: 1) atribuição da fluência de processamento à duração do estímulo, 2) aumento da capacidade para processar atributos temporais do estímulo (modelos da atenção) e 3) aumento do arousal.

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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Much of relevant information comes from the periphery. The current study aimed to understand whether the network for processing of threatening signals differs when using foveal (0º) and peripheral (7.5º) vision. Four runs of 58 trials each were performed. Both stimulus type (fierce animal faces; non-fierce animal faces; natural displays without animals) and spatial location (central; peripheral left; peripheral right) were manipulated. Importantly, the participants (n=12) were asked to perform different tasks while fixating a cross at the center: they had to report (a) animal recognition (first 2 runs) or (b) detection of threat signals (last two runs) by means of a 2-button (Yes/No) response box. Picture duration was kept short (150 ms) to prevent visual saccades and the eye movements were recorded to ensure central fixation. The inter-trial interval varied randomly (7.5, 10, 12s). We found an inverted pattern for the amygdala (left) activity depending on the task performed: in the animal recognition task, the contrast target vs. control showed increased activation for the periphery but not for central locations; and for the center but not for the periphery in the threat detection task. Both orbitofrontal (OFC) and anterior insula activity was more prominent for the threat detection task. Our results suggest that when the task at hand is directed to threat features detection, the amygdala signals the sensory component and the orbifrontal the value.

Attractiveness enhances the perceived familiarity of unfamiliar faces but not familiar faces
Publication year: 2012
URL:
http://www.perceptionweb.com/abstract.cgi?id=v120421
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous research has indicated that the perceived familiarity of an unfamiliar face is positively correlated with the attractiveness of the face and that brief exposure to previously unfamiliar faces increases the strength of this correlation (Peskin and Newell, 2004 Perception33147-157). In addition, the familiarity ratings of even highly familiar faces are influenced by the expression of the face with positive expressions yielding higher familiarity ratings (Lander and Metcalfe, 2007 Memory1563-69). In the study reported, we attempted to establish whether the perceived familiarity of both familiar and unfamiliar faces is affected by the attractiveness of the face. Participants were shown four groups of faces (familiar attractive, familiar less-attractive, unfamiliar attractive, unfamiliar less-attractive) and were asked to rate each face for familiarity. The results indicated that attractiveness had an effect on the perceived familiarity of unfamiliar faces with attractive unfamiliar faces being rated significantly more familiar than less-attractive faces. No difference was found for the familiarity ratings of familiar faces. The results indicate that unlike expressions, attractiveness does not influence the perceived familiarity of familiar faces. It is suggested that non-changeable aspects of a face (such as attractiveness) do not influence familiarity once a face is sufficiently familiar.

Learning new faces from multiple images
Publication year: 2012

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
It has been suggested that familiar and unfamiliar faces employ different processing mechanisms with familiar faces recognised via an invariant structural code and unfamiliar faces from the pictorial codes contained within an image of a face (Bruce and Young, 1986 British Journal of Psychology77305-327). Recent research has suggested however that perhaps all faces, including familiar faces are recognised through pictorial coding (Longmore, Liu and Young, 2008 Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance3477-100). We present a series of experiments showing that when recognition across viewpoints (eg full-face to profile) of a face is required, recognition does indeed appear to be tied to the images studied. However, using the same experimental paradigm, evidence from ERPs indicates that there might be some degree of facilitation in learning two viewpoints (frontal and profile) when recognition on a previously unseen view (three-quarter) is required compared to learning a single view. This suggests that some kind of structural information is being extracted during learning that facilitates recognition from novel views. It would appear that whilst the behavioural data indicates a predominately pictorial basis for the recognition of newly learnt faces, neuro-correlates suggest greater levels of invariance.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The neural processes that underpin the cognitive capacity for self-recognition were investigated in two fMRI studies:
(1) Aging-related changes in self-face identification: Participants viewed images of either their own face as it currently looks morphed with the face of a familiar other or their childhood face morphed with the childhood face of the familiar other. Results suggest that distinct neural structures encode changes in self-identity across time. Activity in areas that have a generalised selectivity for faces, including the inferior occipital gyrus, the superior parietal lobule and the inferior temporal gyrus, varied with the amount of current self in an image. Activity in areas involved in memory encoding and retrieval, including the hippocampus and the posterior cingulate gyrus, and areas involved in creating a sense of body ownership, including the temporo-parietal junction and the inferior parietal lobule, varied with the amount of childhood self in an image.
(2) Sensory-driven changes in self-face identification. Participants experienced tactile stimulation delivered to their face, whilst observing either temporally synchronous or asynchronous tactile stimulation delivered to another person’s face on either a congruent or incongruent location. Activity in a network of multisensory areas including the right temporo-parietal Junction (rTPJ) and middle frontal gyrus, the bilateral anterior insula and intraparietal sulcus, showed an effect of synchronous, congruent stimulation. Activity in the rTPJ was scaled with the extent to which the participants’ felt identification with the observed face during stimulation. These results provide a functional basis for the neural plasticity of the self-recognition network.

The different faces of one's self: An fMRI study into the recognition of current and past self-facial appearances
Publication year: 2012

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053811912008610
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Mirror self-recognition is often considered as an index of self-awareness. Neuroimaging studies have identified a neural circuit specialised for the recognition of one's own current facial appearance. However, faces change considerably over a lifespan, highlighting the necessity for representations of one's face to continually be updated. We used fMRI to investigate the different neural circuits involved in the recognition of the childhood and current, adult, faces of one's self. Participants viewed images of either their own face as it currently looks morphed with the face of a familiar other or their childhood face morphed with the childhood face of the familiar other. Activity in areas which have a generalised selectivity for faces, including the inferior occipital gyrus, the superior parietal lobule and the inferior temporal gyrus, varied with the amount of current self in an image. Activity in areas involved in memory encoding and retrieval, including the hippocampus and the posterior cingulate gyrus, and areas involved in creating a sense of body ownership, including the temporo-parietal junction and the inferior parietal lobule, varied with the amount of childhood self in an image. We suggest that the recognition of one's own past or present face is underpinned by different cognitive processes in distinct neural circuits. Current self-recognition engages areas involved in perceptual face processing, whereas childhood self-recognition recruits networks involved in body ownership and memory processing.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A plethora of research has investigated the neural basis of the ability to recognise one’s current facial appearance in photographs or mirrors. However, one important question has not previously been examined; how are images of one’s past facial appearance processed in the brain when they are also recognised as “me”? To examine this question, we used fMRI to investigate brain activity as participants viewed images of themselves, morphed with images of a personally familiar other. The images were morphs between the participants’ and the familiar others’ current facial appearances or their childhood appearances. The participants performed a self-other judgement on morphed pictures that contained 0%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% or 100% “self”. We analysed the fMRI data parametrically, to examine activity that covaried with the percentage of “self” present in the stimuli. Activity in areas involved in body-ownership and memory retrieval varied with the amount of the participants’ childhood face in the images, but not the amount of the participants’ current facial appearance. We also found that activity in a network of face-selective, but not self-face selective areas varied with the amount of current self in the stimuli and not the amount of childhood self. We argue that a representation of one’s current facial appearance is maintained and updated in networks that process all faces. In contrast, representations of one’s past facial appearances are stored in memory and then are re-experienced as a part of one’s own body, allowing them to be recognised as one’s own.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In human cognition, most relevant stimuli, such as faces, are processed in central vision. However, it is widely believed that recognition of relevant stimuli (e.g. threatening animal faces) at peripheral locations is also important due to their survival value. Moreover, task instructions have been shown to modulate brain regions involved in threat recognition (e.g. the amygdala). In this respect it is also controversial whether tasks requiring explicit focus on stimulus threat content vs. implicit processing differently engage primitive subcortical structures involved in emotional appraisal.
Here we have addressed the role of central vs. peripheral processing in the human amygdala using animal threatening vs. non-threatening face stimuli. First, a simple animal face recognition task with threatening and non-threatening animal faces, as well as non-face control stimuli, was employed in naïve subjects (implicit task). A subsequent task was then performed with the same stimulus categories (but different stimuli) in which subjects were told to explicitly detect threat signals.
We found lateralized amygdala responses both to the spatial location of stimuli and to the threatening content of faces depending on the task performed: the right amygdala showed increased responses to central compared to left presented stimuli specifically during the threat detection task, while the left amygdala was better prone to discriminate threatening faces from non-facial displays during the animal face recognition task. Additionally, the right amygdala responded to faces during the threat detection task but only when centrally presented. Moreover, we have found no evidence for superior responses of the amygdala to peripheral stimuli. Importantly, we have found that striatal regions activate differentially depending on peripheral vs. central processing of threatening faces. Accordingly, peripheral processing of these stimuli activated more strongly the putaminal region, while central processing engaged mainly the caudate nucleus.
We conclude that the human amygdala has a central bias for face stimuli, and that visual processing recruits different striatal regions, putaminal or caudate based, depending on the task and on whether peripheral or central visual processing is involved.

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.

Attractiveness enhances the perceived familiarity of unfamiliar faces but not familiar faces
Publication year: 2012

http://ecvp2012.uniss.it/index.php/eng/Program/Posters-3rd-Sept/Face-processing
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous research has indicated that the perceived familiarity of an unfamiliar face is positively correlated with the attractiveness of the face and that brief exposure to previously unfamiliar faces increases the strength of this correlation [Peskin and Newell, 2004, Perception, 33, 147-157]. In addition, the familiarity ratings of even highly familiar faces are influenced by the expression of the face with positive expressions yielding higher familiarity ratings [Lander and Metcalfe, 2007, Memory, 15, 63-69]. In the study reported, we attempted to establish whether the perceived familiarity of both familiar and unfamiliar faces is affected by the attractiveness of the face. Participants were shown four groups of faces (familiar attractive, familiar less-attractive, unfamiliar attractive, unfamiliar less-attractive) and were asked to rate each face for familiarity. The results indicated that attractiveness had an effect on the perceived familiarity of unfamiliar faces with attractive unfamiliar faces being rated significantly more familiar than less-attractive faces. No difference was found for the familiarity ratings of familiar faces. The results indicate that unlike expressions, attractiveness does not influence the perceived familiarity of familiar faces. It is suggested that non-changeable aspects of a face (such as attractiveness) do not influence familiarity once a face is sufficiently familiar.
