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.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Previous research has shown that people reporting contact with aliens, known as “experiencers”, appear to have a different psychological profile compared to control participants. They show higher levels of dissociativity, absorption, paranormal belief and experience, and possibly fantasy proneness. They also appear to show greater susceptibility to false memories as assessed using the Deese/Roediger-McDermott technique.
The present study reports an attempt to replicate these previous findings as well as assessing tendency to hallucinate and self-reported incidence of sleep paralysis in a sample of 19 UK-based experiencers and a control sample matched on age and gender.
Experiencers were found to show higher levels of dissociativity, absorption, paranormal belief, paranormal experience, self-reported psychic ability, fantasy proneness, tendency to hallucinate, and self-reported incidence of sleep paralysis. No significant differences were found between the groups in terms of susceptibility to false memories. Implications of the results are discussed and suggestions are made for future avenues of research.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The purpose of the present study is to test whether hallucinatory experiences respond to the dimensionality principle and whether they occur in non-psychotic disorders. Six hundred fifty six undergraduate students, 76% females and 24% males (age range 17-57), completed seven scales, such as the Hallucination Experiences Scale, Paranormal Experiences Questionnaire, Creative Experiences Questionnaire, Tellegen Absorption Scale, Dissociative Experiences Scale, Schizotypical Personality Questionnaire, and Eysenck Personality Inventory. Data for persons seeing apparitions (and having other experiences) were compared with data for those who did not. Experients scored higher on absorption (z= 6.06), dissociation (z= 4.65), fantasy proneness (z= 4.76) and cognitive perceptual schizotypy (z= 8.21) than non experients. Twentyfour (80%) out of 30 correlations were also significant. Apparitional and apparition-like experiences are related to higher levels of reports of absorption, dissociation and imaginative fantasy experiences. Such findings suggest that visions of ghosts may be related to cognitive processes involving fantasy and cognitive perceptual schizotypy proneness, which are correlated with each other. The results showed a higher level of cognitive-perceptual, schizotypy, absorption, dissociation, fantasy and hallucination proneness, and visual imagery in experiencers than in non-experiencers and confirm previous studies. The findings suggest that especially cognitive-perceptual aspects of schizotypy, such as disturbances in sense of self, certainly of self, and self-awareness, are essential features of persons who had paranormal experiencers.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Two samples were studied, 214 students of psychology at a university in Lima (74% women, 26% men) and 184 upper secondary students in Pucallpa, Peruvian region of Ucayali (42% women, 58% men). Results show that both students from Lima and from Pucallpa that had had aparitional experiences were more prone to experiment unusual pseudo-hallucinatory perceptions and more prone to skizotypy in comparison to those who reported not having experiences of the sort. In addition, students that had had aparitional experiences showehigher levels in the scales of disociation, absortion and proness to phantasy compared to students with no aparitional experiences.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The purpose of the present study is to test whether hallucinatory experiences respond to the dimensionality principle and to detect potential differences between a group of “hallucinators” and a group of “non-hallucinators” with regard to personality traits in 214 Peruvian undergraduates students (non-clinical sample) and 30 outpatients (clinical sample). Among a sample of undergraduates, it was predicted that those who reported a number of anomalous perceptual experiences would score higher than nonexperiencers on the hallucination prone (auditive, visual, hipnagogic/hipnopompic and tactile), fantasy proneness, absorption, dissociation, and the cognitive-perceptual factor of the schizotypal questionnaire. All the predictions were significantly confirmed except those concerning interpersonal and disorganized schizotypy.

Variables cognitivas y perceptuales en la experiencia del déjà vu
Publication year: 2009

http://www.feap.es/anuarios/2010/html/RevLA01xART0582.html
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
La experiencia de déjà vu puede ser definida como cualquier impresión subjetiva errónea de familiaridad acerca de una experiencia presente con pasado indefinido. En efecto, individuos que tienen experiencias de déjà vu tienen un nivel más elevado de actividad imaginativa/fantasiosa o propensión a la fantasía. Cuando se compara a estos individuos con quienes no la experimentan, estas personas tienen mayor capacidad de absorción psicológica. Este estudio incluyó 560 estudiantes de psicología de ambos sexos, 406 mujeres y 154 varones. Los resultados indican que la esquizotipia cognitivo-perceptual, desrealización/ despersonalización, sinestesia, y tendencia a la fantasía son factores que parecen cumplir un rol en la ocurrencia de la experiencia déjà vu en comparación con individuos que no tienen la experiencia. Además, las experiencias déjà vu podrían operar en un continuo en cuyo extremo están los estados disociativos normales y en el otro, estados patológicos como la amnesia disociativa y la despersonalización.

Experiencias extracorpóreas en relación a la propensidad a alucinar, esquizotipia y disociación en estudiantes argentinos y peruanos
Publication year: 2009

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
An out-of-body experience or OBE is one in which the “self” or center of awareness seems to the person who experiences it to occupy temporarily a position that is spatially remote from his or her body. The experience seems to be quite widespread in the
general population. Some studies show a close relation relationship between the incidence of OBEs and its psychological correlates,
especially personality variables, absorption, and dissociative experiences. Six specific hypotheses are tested: Students who report out-of-body experiences have a higher capacity for (1) Visual and Tactile hallucination, (2) Cognitive-perceptual, Disorganized and Interpersonal schizotypy, (3) Dissociation, Absorption, Fantasy proneness, than students that do not report such experiences. A total of 648 undergraduate students population (Argentine sample) and 214 undergraduate students population (Peruvian sample), completed a number of scales. Data for subjects who experienced OBE were compared with data for those who did not. The results showed higher levels of cognitive-perceptual schizotypy, absorption, dissociation, fantasy and hallucination proneness, and visual imagery in OBErs than in non-OBErs which confirms previous studies. This study suggests the dissociational model of OBE, although the term hallucination has pejorative overtones in spite of the widespread occurrence of anomalous perceptual experiences in the normal population. Some subjects report beneficial effects from OBEs in an adaptive way.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In this paper, we investigate whether the personality trait of Absorption is a predisposing factor for HG/HP hallucinatory experience. Our participants, six hundred and fifty-six undergraduate students, 76% females and 24% males (age range 17-57), completed four scales, assessing absorption (r = .48, p < .001, 2-tailed), Cognitive-perceptual schizotypy and schizotypy proneness (r = .44, p < .001, 2-tailed), dissociation (r = .46, p < .001, 2-tailed), and Fantasy proneness (r = .42, p < .001, 2-tailed), subjective
experiences along the sleep-wakefulness continuum. Our findings are indicative of a common, pseudohallucinatory experiential base, suggesting that absorption can indeed serve as the predisposing factor for hallucinatory experience. In our discussion, we look at the implications of this finding for applied cognitive psychology, focusing on the study of false memories and reality monitoring.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Individuals who claim being able to spontaneously see the "aura" or energy field of a person, also tend to exhibit elevated levels of imaginative processing or fantasy proneness. There are some indications that those who have a high capacity for absorption usually also experience different parasomatic shapes, tactile hallucinations and sensations of subtle energies, as well as schizotypical ideation, perceptual error and increased synesthesia. The objective is to calculate the correlations of psychological absorption scores, dissociation, fantasy proneness, intensity of imagination and the schizotypical tendency of people who claim to see auras (N=83), in comparison to a group of people lacking these experiences (N=503). The results indicate a higher level of cognitive perceptual schizotypy than for those who do not have this experience. Possibly, these people have a much more intense imaginative life. This does not necessarily have any psychopathological implications for the individual; people who see auras might simply be sensitive to anomalous perceptual experiences.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
An out-of-body experience or OBE is one in which the ?self? or center of awareness seems to the experient to occupy temporarily a position that is spatially remote from his or her body. A total of 648 undergraduate students population included 76% females and 24% males, and who completed a number of scales. Data for experients of OBE were compared with data for those who did not (experients N= 132 vs. non-experients N= 516). The results showed a higher level of cognitive-perceptual schizotypy, absorption, dissociation, fantasy and hallucination proneness, and visual imagery in OBErs than in non-OBErs. This study suggest that the dissociational model of OBE. Anomalous perceptual experiences and some subjects report beneficial effects from OBEs in an adaptive way.

Extrasensorial experiences and hallucinatory experience: Links with personality and perceptual measures
Publication year: 2009
URL:
http://www.psychotherapyresearch.org/associations/6344/files/events/santiago/boa_santiago.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Numerous studies have found that normal, healthy individuals may experience hallucinations, which reveal that a substantial number of nonclinical participants (i.e., people who have not been clinically referred or have never received a psychiatric or neurological diagnosis) report having typical hallucinatory experiences. In contrast, an extrasensory experience is one in which it appears that the experient's mind has acquired information directly, that is, seemingly without either the mediation of the recognized human senses or the processes of logical inference. The extrasensory experience pertains to appearances and not necessarily to reality, whereas the "extrasensory" in extrasensory perception refers to the nature of a hypothesized paranormal reality. Research on predisposition to extrasensorial experiences has evaluated differences between nonexperients and experients. The similarity between symptoms of schizotypal personality disorder and characteristics of ESP experiences is marked. These experiences do not occur in a vacuum but are closely interwoven with many other psychological processes. A total of 648 undergraduate psychology students at Faculty of Psychology of the UAI from Argentina, 494 (76%) females and 154 (24%) males, ranging in age from 17 to 57 years (M = 25.11, SD = 7.23), who completed six scales, Hallucination Experiences Scale; the Schizotypical Personality Questionnaire, the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire; the Dissociation Experiences Scale ; the Tellegen Absorption Scale; and the Creative Experiences Questionnaire. The present study examined the differences between persons with and without Precognitive dreams (N Yes= 46%) and Extrasensorial experiences (N Yes= 45%) on different cognitive and psychological measures. The findings suggest that especially cognitive-perceptual aspects of schizotypy (both experiences z= 4.68; p < .001, one-tailed) are essential features of persons who had Precognitive dreams and Extrasensory Experiences; also suggesting that the dissociational model of extrasensorial experiences, which assumed that under lying dissociative proceses such as absorption and fantasy proneness are associated with ESP Experiences and Precognitive dreams. The cognitive-perceptual aspects of schizotypy, dissociation, and absorption seem to be present in the personal predisposition for experiencing an ESP Experiences. A possible theoretical model that seems to emerge from the present results is that of a “happy schizotype”. Positive schizotypy, reflecting hallucinations and altered perceptual experiences, has been related to subjective anomalous and para normal experiences and beliefs. It is tentatively concluded that the const ellation of interrelated factors which make up the construct of the “fantasy prone personality” provide a psychological predisposition for the extrasensorial experiences experience.

Differential patterns of spontaneous experiential response to a hypnotic induction: A latent profile analysis
Publication year: 2010
URL:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053810010000607
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A hypnotic induction produces different patterns of spontaneous experiences across individuals. The magnitude and characteristics of these responses covary moderately with hypnotic suggestibility, but also differ within levels of hypnotic suggestibility. This study sought to identify discrete phenomenological profiles in response to a hypnotic induction and assess whether experiential variability among highly suggestible individuals matches the phenomenological profiles predicted by dissociative typological models of high hypnotic suggestibility. Phenomenological state scores indexed in reference to a resting epoch during hypnosis were submitted to a latent profile analysis. The profiles in the derived four-class solution differed in multiple experiential dimensions and hypnotic suggestibility. Highly suggestible individuals were distributed across two classes that exhibited response patterns suggesting an inward attention subtype and a dissociative subtype. These results provide support for dissociative typological models of high hypnotic suggestibility and indicate that highly suggestible individuals do not display a uniform response to a hypnotic induction.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
The purpose of the present study is to test whether hallucinatory experiences respond to the dimensionality principle and whether they occur in non-psychotic disorders. Hence, we will try to detect potential differences (if they were so) between a group of “hallucinators” and a group of “non-hallucinators” with regard to personality, parapsychological and psychopathological traits; hallucinating patients will be compared with nonhallucinating people (undergraduate students); and Peruvian undergraduates students will be compared with and Argentine students in order to carry out a transcultural approach.
METHOD:
A total of 648 undergraduate psychology students population included 494 (76%) females and 154 (24%) males, ranging in age from 17 to 57 years (Mean= 25.11; SD=7.23). We will test whether vivid imagery, dissociation, schizotypical personality, neuroticism, introversion–extroversion, fantasy-prone, absorption and paranormal experiences are predisposing factors for hallucinatory experience. The sample completed a number of questionnaires, in order to explore experiences such as ESP dreams, telepathy, perception of lights/energies, ‘out-of-body’ and near death experiences, past lives recall, sense of presence, medium/possession experiences, spontaneous psychokinesis, healing experience, deja-vu, mystical experience, apparitional experience.
PRELIMINARY RESULTS:
The results showed a higher level of cognitive-perceptual, schizotypy, absorption, dissociation, fantasy and hallucination proneness, and visual imagery in OBErs than in non-OBErs and confirm previous studies. The findings suggest that especially cognitive-perceptual aspects of schizotypy, such as disturbances in sense of self, certainly of self, and self-awareness, are essential features of persons who had paranormal experiencers. The results of this study suggest that the dissociational model of the paranormal experiences, which assumed that underlying dissociative proceses such as absorption and fantasy proneness are associated with them.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
An out-of-body experience or OBE is one in which the “self” or center of awareness seems to the experient to occupy temporarily a position that is spatially remote from his or her body. The experience seems are very widespread in the general population. Some studies show a close relation between the incidente of OBEs and their psychological correlates, especially personality variables, absorption, and dissociative experiences. Six specific hypotheses are tested: Students who report out-of-body experiences have a higher capacity for (1) absorption, (2) dissociation, (3) fantasy proneness, (3) kinetic and visual imagery, (4) visual and tactile hallucination, and (5) cognitive-perceptual, disorganized and interpersonal schizotypy than non-experients. A total of 648 undergraduate students population included 76% females and 24% males, who completed a number of scales. Data for experients of OBE were compared with data for those who did not (experients N= 132 vs. non experients N= 516). The results showed a higher level of cognitive-perceptual, schizotypy, absorption, dissociation, fantasy and hallucination proneness, and visual imagery in OBErs than in non-OBErs which confirm previous studies. The statistical test found that the absorption and cognitive-perceptual schizotypy were the best discriminant for visual [F (2/498)= 81.08; p< .001] and tactile hallucination [F (2/498)= 88.44; p< .001], which underlie the differ-entiation of the OBErs and non-OBErs. The term hallucination has pejorative overtones in spite of the widespread occurrence of anomalous perceptual experiences in the normal population. Some subjects report beneficial effects from OBEs in an adaptive way.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Three hypotheses are tested. People who has a number of paranormal/anomalous experiences have a higher capacity for dissociation, absorption, and fantasy proneness than non¬-experients. These hypothesis were supported the mean for experients was significantly higher than for non experients. Five hundred sixty undergraduate students, 76% females and 24% males (age range 17-57), completed four scales: the Dissociative Experiences Scale, Tellegen Absorption Scale, Creative Experiences Questionnaire, and Paranormal Experiences Questionnaire. Experients scored higher on dissociation, absorption and fantasy proneness than non experients. Probably the present findings are reasonably representative of people who are not actively interested in paranormal phenomena, but many of these kind of experience reach predictable emotional reactions such as amazement, surprise, curiosity and puzzlement, and fear. On the other hand, some people are disturbed by psychic experiences and may need counseling, such as precognitive dreams, telepathy, poltergeist, perception of lights, out-of-the-body experiences, past lives memories, spiritual contacts, and mediumship. This study demonstrated the viability of adopting a psychological approach to better understand the anomalous/paranormal experiences.
