Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
The aim of the study was to investigate the EEG and autonomic concomitants of the hypnosis, internal imaging and emotional experience.
METHODS:
13 high hypnotizable subjects participated in two experiments: (1) in hypnotic session (HS) that included
live hypnotic induction, deep hypnotic relaxation, recollection of emotionally indifferent (I), positive (P) and
negative (N) past events and (2) in a waking session (WS) that included inner silence condition, and recollection of the same I, P, N past events. To explore the dimension of the affect intensity two modes of the emotional events recollection were used in WS - “associated” (A - active participation of the subject in the remembered event) and “dissociated” (D - watching of the event “at the inner screen”). EEG (19 sites), ECG and skin conduction (SC) were recorded.
RESULTS:
Heart rate and SC changes during HS and WS paralleled the anticipated increase of arousal level from relaxation to inner imagery and further to P and N emotion recollection, thus verifying the emotional experience. The observed decrease of EEG spectral power (SP) and coherence (COH) within all frequency bands under HS may reflect the specificity of hypnosis as an altered state of consciousness. Mental imagery led to pronounced blockage of alpha SP over the posterior scalp area. During emotional conditions the generalized increase of EEG SP was observed. Delta and theta SP increase was more pronounced during N emotions, whereas alpha SP increase – during P ones. Beta2 and gamma1 SP was higher at right frontal, central and parietal sites during P emotions as compared to N ones. Emotion-related patterns of COH changes were frequency as well as hemispheric-specific depending on emotional valence. P emotions elicited more pronounced right-hemispheric COH increase within gamma bands. N emotions led to greater increase of left-hemispheric COH within theta and beta1 bands. EEG changes in WS had the same direction but were less pronounced than in HS. The SP and COH differences between A and D recollections of events in WS were revealed in the bands specifically depending on emotional valence. D mode as compared to A one led to less gamma SP during P event recollection, to higher alpha1 and alpha2 SP during N event and to less theta, beta and gamma COH during both emotional event recollection.
CONCLUSIONS:
The obtained results corroborate and extend the existing findings of the role of EEG rhythms in hypnotic state and emotion production.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
We conducted two trials of a free-response ESP test. The aim was to determine if two groups, ‘low’- and ‘high’-scorers on a measure of hypnotic susceptibility, would score differently on a psi-hitting task. We used the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility which assesses the hypnotisability of subjects when tested in groups. The sample (N = 101 psi-believing participants; 69 females and 32 males) was split into ‘High HS’ (n = 20) and ‘Low HS’ groups (n = 81) based on HS scores. There was a significant difference between the two groups on Hypnotic Susceptibility and psi scores (i.e., number of hits), t(99) = 2.31, p = .012. A second study was carried out. A number of papers have investigated the idea of rational versus intuitive thinking and how this might relate to paranormal beliefs. Those who possess both intuitive and rational thinking styles are more likely to report paranormal experiences and subjective paranormal ability than those who express either intuitive or rational thinking. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the differences between psychic claimants (N = 49) and non-psychic claimants (N = 45) on such personality factors as Global Constructive Thinking, Emotional Coping, Behavioural Coping, and Esoteric Thinking. The sample consisted of 94 participants, all of whom believed in psi. Participants completed the Constructive Thinking Inventory and the Anomalous Experiences Inventory. The psychic claimants group had significantly higher scores on 12 out of 23 factors/facets which could not all be explained by chance. Compared to non-psychic claimants, the psychic claimants tend to have more positive attitudes; their thinking is action-oriented; they are good behavioural copers; they think in ways that promote effective action; and they are more accepting of others. At the same time, they are more rigid in their thinking than non-psychic claimants.

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.

Esperienze fuori del corpo ed esperienze allucinatorie: Un approccio psicologico
Publication year: 2008
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. 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, 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 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 differentiation of the OBErs and non-OBErs. This study suggest that the dissociational model of OBE, however 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.

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.

Indicadores de propensión a la esquizotipia entre individuos creyentes en lo paranormal: examinando la intensidad de la imaginería, esquizotipia y experiencias alucinatorias
Publication year: 2010

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Some studies suggest that a strong belief in the paranormal predisposes one to having a variety of paranormal experiences, or even to an equal or larger extent interpret anomalous perceptual experiences as such. Proneness to shizotypy is another factor that underlies the control and preservation of these beliefs. This study examined possible differences between ”hallucinators” and ”non-hallucinators”, from a sample of believers in the paranormal, in terms of the intensity of auditory, visual and tactile imagery, as well as three factors of proneness to schizotypy. A sample of 158 believers in the paranormal was examined, including 110 women (69.6%) and 48 men (30.4%), age range 19 to 75 years (m = 46.83, Sd = 11.92). A second sample included 158 psychology students, 69% women and 30% men (age m = 46.83), from the Open interamerican University. Both groups completed Betts’ Vivid imagery Scale, Barrett’s hallucinations questionnaire, and the Schizotypical Personality questionnaire. The results revealed greater intensity of visual, auditory and táctiles imagery by hallucinators as compared to non-hallucinators among believers in the paranormal, but no greater proneness to hallucinate. however, the visual, auditory and tactile hallucinators scored higher than non-hallucinators on the cognitive-perceptual factor, which also appeared as the best discriminator of visual, auditory and tactile hallucinatory modalities in the student sample. A possible conclusion is that believers in the paranormal are psychologically integrated individuals; nevertheless the term ”hallucination” should be abandoned.

Aura vision as a hallucinatory experience: Its relation to fantasy proneness, absorption, and other perceptual maladjustments
Publication year: 2010
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
The phenomenon of aura vision has a long tradition in the religious, occult, and psychical research literatures. Perceptual illusions, afterimages, and contrast effects have been offered as scientific explanations for aura reports. Among a sample of 586 undergraduates, it was predicted that those who reported an aura experience would score higher than nonexperiencers on the Betts Vividness of Imagery Scale (visual and tactile), Barrett’s Hallucinations Questionnaire (visual and tactile), the Creative Experiences Questionnaire (fantasy proneness), the Tellegen Absorption Scale, the Dissociative Experiences Scale, and the cognitive-perceptual subscale of the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire. All the predictions were significantly confirmed except those concerning visual and tactile hallucinations. It was concluded that persons who “see” auras are likely to have a rich imaginal life.

Publication year: 2010

http://www.researchgate.net/publication/240302688_Out-of-Body_Experiences_and_Hallucinatory_Experiences_A_Psychological_Approach
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In an out-of-body experience (OBE), the "self," or center of awareness, seems to temporarily occupy a position spatially remote from one's body. In support of previous studies, undergraduate students reporting OBEs (N = 132) showed a higher level of cognitive-perceptual schizotypy, absorption, dissociation, fantasy, and hallucination proneness, and visual imagery than did non-OBErs (N = 516). Absorption and cognitive-perceptual schizotypy were the best discriminators for visual and tactile hallucinations (p < .001). The results support a dissociation model of OBEs. Some persons reported beneficial adaptive effects from their OBEs. Despite the widespread occurrence of anomalous perceptual experiences, including OBEs, in the general population, the term hallucination still has pejorative overtones. The present results are in agreement with other studies in which measures of fantasy proneness seemed to be successful predictors of psychic phenomena (Myers, Austrin, Grisso, & Nickeson, 1983; Wilson & Barber, 1982). Such findings suggest that OBEs may be related to fantasy proneness and cognitive-perceptual schizotypy, which are correlated with each other. Future research should focus on the role of different types of OBEs in personality and cognitive processing.

Extrasensory experiences and hallucinatory experience: Comparision between two non-clinical samples linked with psychological measures
Publication year: 2010

http://www.spr.ac.uk/main/page/jspr-abstracts-2010#Jul
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Hallucinations are experienced by numerous healthy people who are not suffering from neurological or psychiatric disorders. An extrasensory experience is one in which it appears that the experient’s mind has acquired information directly; that is, seemingly without the mediation of the recognized human senses.The veridicality of psi information in ESP experiences involving hallucinations is a debatable matter in mental health and parapsychology. The‘extrasensory’ in‘extrasensory experience’ therefore pertains to appearances and not necessarily to reality; whereas the ‘extrasensory’ in ‘extrasensory perception’ refers to the nature of a hypothesized paranormal reality.
In this study, three specific hypotheses were tested: two samples of under­graduate students (Argentine and Peruvian) who have reported extrasensory experiences would have a higher capacity than non-experients for: (1) auditory, visual and tactile hallucination;(2)schizotypy proneness;(3)absorption/dissociation; and (4) fantasy proneness. The results showed a higher level in experients than in non-experients of hallucination proneness and cognitive–perceptual schizotypy, followed by absorption and fantasy proneness. The findings also suggest that cognitive–perceptual aspects of schizotypy are features of persons who have had ESP/hallucinatory experiences, on the assumption that underlying dissociative processes such as absorption and fantasy proneness are associated with ESP experiences.

Exploring the links between nocturnal hallucinatory experiences and personality characteristics
Publication year: 2009

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A number of studies have demonstrated high prevalence rates of hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations in the general population, such as sensations of floating, seeing lights, hearing noises, being called, and being touched. There are a number of well
documented cases of ESP and crisis apparitions that have also occurred during the hypnagogic/hypnopompic states, such as forms
of ESP, telepathy, and out-of-body experiences. Other formal links between paranormal or anomalous experiences may be seen in the positive relationship consistently found between HG/HP and dissociational/absorption experiences and fantasy proneness, which correlated significantly higher on schizotypy and perceptual aberration, without suffering from the more unpleasant symptoms. Participants who have HG/HP experiences have a higher capacity for (1) schizotypy proneness and cognitive-perceptual schizotypy, and (2) dissociation, absorption, and fantasy proneness than nonexperients. A total of 648 undergraduate psychology students from Argentina and 214 from Peru were tested. The results suggest that absorption and cognitive-perceptual aspects of schizotypy, in particular, are essential features of persons with HG/HP experiences. The results, which suggest that persons who
experience HG/HP are likely to have a rich imaginal life, are consistent with other studies that have found measures of absorption to be successful predictors of psychic phenomena.

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.

Dissociative tendencies and individual differences in high hypnotic suggestibility

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
Inconsistencies in the relationship between dissociation and hypnosis may result from heterogeneity among highly suggestible individuals, in particular the existence of distinct highly suggestible subtypes that are of relevance to models of psychopathology and the consequences of trauma. This study contrasted highly suggestible subtypes high or low in dissociation on measures of hypnotic responding, cognitive functioning, and psychopathology.
METHODS:
Twenty-one low suggestible (LS), 19 low dissociative highly suggestible (LDHS), and 11 high dissociative highly suggestible (HDHS) participants were administered hypnotic suggestibility scales and completed measures of free recall, working memory capacity, imagery, fantasy-proneness, psychopathology, and exposure to stressful life events.
RESULTS:
HDHS participants were more responsive to positive and negative hallucination suggestions and experienced greater involuntariness during hypnotic responding. They also exhibited impaired working memory capacity, elevated pathological fantasy and dissociative symptomatology, and a greater incidence of exposure to stressful life events. In contrast, LDHS participants displayed superior object visual imagery.
CONCLUSIONS:
These results provide further evidence for two highly suggestible subtypes: a dissociative subtype characterised by deficits in executive functioning and a predisposition to psychopathology, and a subtype that exhibits superior imagery and no observable deficits in functioning.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
The search for 'psi-conducive' states of consciousness has a long history in parapsychology. Reviews of the literature show that there is much evidence to support the contention that hypnosis is a psi-conducive state. States of consciousness, induced through different techniques, have been studied, e.g. hypnosis and progressive muscle relaxation and the induction technique. Subjects who are in a relaxed, psi-conducive state are in a state of low arousal which may be accompanied by such a low motivation that they do not care about performing the psi task well.
METHOD:
In this research project, the participants –believers in the general possibility of psi– were recruited in the Instituto de Psicología Paranormal at Buenos Aires. Subjects were divided into two groups, hypnosis and no-hypnosis stimulation. Subjects all completed three personality questionnaires, such as the NEO-PI-R, Millon Index of Personality Styles Revised, The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, two imagery and creativity questionnaires (e.g. Betts’s Vividness of Imagery Scale) before any psi testing be conducted. Both researchers remain blind to the scores from the personality scales until the subjects had been tested and their test scores be checked and independently rechecked.
RESULTS:
The sample included 62 participants, both 40 females (71.4%) and 22 males (28.6%), their ages ranged from 19 to 77 years (Mean= 48.47; SD= 11.02). All subjects also completed the hypnosis susceptibility questionnaire. ESP tests (clairvoyance) was performed which it is being conducted under two counterbalanced conditions: (a) hypnosis and (b) relaxation stimulation. Two targets type (emotional vs. neutral) is being used as stimulus. Emotional targets were previously evaluated by all of the participants, which they will be given ratings for enjoyability, affinity, emotionality, and valence. Each subject, having completed the personality scales will outline the nature of the task to the subject and answer any questions about the procedure. Under hypnosis condition scored psi-hitting 31.2%. notably above chance expected; however. under no-hypnosis (“control”) condition we obtained 24.6%, up to date. These are interesting results which seems to suggest that hypnosis condition somehow optimizes psi-communication.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives: Two studies were done exploring the effectiveness of two PK imagery strategies
derived from a survey of popular writings on how to develop psychic skills. Goal-oriented imagery
involves visualizing only the final outcome or desired goal; process-oriented imagery involves
visualizing some sort of process gradually leading up to the desired final outcome.
Method: In the first study, 62 subjects were asked to bias the behavior of a visual display
controlled by a random number generator, using each imagery strategy half the time (8 runs of 16
trials for each strategy). In the second study, we investigate the effects of two psychologically
distinct techniques of attempting to influence falling dice. In the first technique ("conscious
concentration"), the subject was requested to attempt, by consciously focusing his willpower and
inducing a tension in his muscles, to force the dice to fall with the target face upward. In the
second technique ("visualization"), the subject was asked merely to visualize the desired face while
in a state of relaxation.
Results: There was significantly positive overall evidence for PK (p < .02) and for PK during goaloriented
imagery (p < .01). If one considers the subject as the unit of analysis, subjects' overall
scores differed significantly from chance (p < .05); neither imagery strategy produced scores that
differed significantly from chance, and goal-oriented scores did riot differ significantly from
process-oriented scores. In a second study, 20 subjects attempted the same PK task, using each
imagery strategy half the time. An analysis of variance revealed that goal-oriented imagery scores
were significantly greater than process-oriented scores, that prior training was not itself a
significant factor, but that imagery strategy and prior training interacted significantly (p < .02).
Conclusion: Before considering possible interpretations of the results, some alternative
hypotheses for the observed PK effects should be considered. It is possible, for instance, to
advance the hypothesis that the effects were due solely to chance, excluding a parapsychological
influence. The negative deviation obtained in Condition 1 and the differential scoring between the
conditions indicate that the various effects are unlikely to be due to chance alone.

"A picture is worth a thousand words:" perceptual-personality profiling via a free-response imagery task
Publication year: 2015
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
We tested the use of Latent Semantic Analysis in predicting perceptualpersonality variables known to mediate the interpretation of ambiguous stimuli. An online sample of 588 respondents viewed a set of three iconic images one at a time. Respondents’ verbal impressions of illustrations of the Mona Lisa, Giza Sphinx, and Rodin’s Thinker significantly predicted
low vs. high scores on age, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness (p <.05). When the Rasch Outfit of respondents’ answers was used to define low vs. high categories, the semantic coordinates of their textual answers successfully predicted age, Extraversion, and Transliminality. The percentage of correct classifications did not exceed 65%, but they gain in importance by the fact that this reflects the findings’ generalizability, rather than the values reached upon convergence on the training set. The findings lend support for pursuing the use of computerized content analysis of free responses in psychological assessment.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Two studies were done exploring the effectiveness of two PK imagery strategies derived from a survey of popular writings on how to develop psychic skills. Goal oriented imagery involves visualizing only the final outcome or desired goal; process oriented imagery involves visualizing some sort of process gradually leading up to the desired final outcome.
METHOD
The sample included 62 participants, females (72%) and males (28%). In a first study, 62 subjects were asked to bias the behavior of a visual display controlled by a random number generator (Psyleron v.2011), using each imagery strategy half the time (8 runs of 16 trials for each strategy). In a second study, we investigate (with 62 subjects) the effects of two psychologically distinct techniques of attempting to influence Psyleron´s visual display.
RESULTS
There was significant positive overall evidence for PK (p < .02) and for PK during goal oriented imagery (p < .01). An ANOVA revealed that goal oriented imagery scores were significantly greater than process oriented scores, that prior training was not itself a significant factor, but that imagery strategy and prior training interacted significantly (p < .02).
CONCLUSIONS
The difference between the two groups was also significant (p < .02). Thus the goal oriented imagery strategy appears to be more effective than the process oriented strategy, at least for those with no prior exposure to mental development training.

Title:
Examining the relationship between schizotypy and self-reported visual imagery vividness in grapheme-color synaesthesia
Publication year: 2016
URL:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4770252/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Synaesthesia is a condition in which one property of a stimulus triggers a secondary experience not typically associated with the first (e.g., seeing achromatic graphemes can evoke the perception of color). Recent work has explored a variety of cognitive and perceptual traits associated with synaesthesia. One example is in the domain of personality, where higher rates of positive schizotypy and openness to experience and lower agreeableness have been reported in synaesthetes who experience color as their evoked sensation relative to typical adult controls. Additionally, grapheme-color synaesthetes have previously been reported to show elevated mental imagery compared to typical adults. Here, we aimed to further elucidate the relationship between personality, synaesthesia, and other cognitive traits. In Study 1, we examined self-reported schizotypy and self-reported visual imagery vividness in grapheme-color synaesthetes and typical adults. Our results partially replicated previous findings by showing that synaesthesia was associated with greater positive schizotypy and enhanced self-reported imagery vividness. The results also extend previous reports by demonstrating that differences in positive schizotypy and mental imagery vividness are not related in grapheme-color synaesthesia. In Study 2, we sought to build on prior work showing lower agreeableness and increased openness to experience in synaesthetes by examining whether grapheme-color synaesthesia is associated with other conceptually related traits; namely lower self-monitoring and increased sensation seeking. We did not find any differences between synaesthetes and controls on either of these traits. These findings are discussed in relation to potential factors that may contribute to the observed personality profile in grapheme-color synaesthesia.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Hypnosis involves the use of verbal suggestion to modulate behaviour and experience. Hypnosis and imagination have long been associated and the view that hypnotic suggestion effects changes in experience through imagination is a persistent one. In this review, we first present a brief overview of hypnosis and then turn to its potential relationship to imagery and imagination. We consider whether individual differences in imagination may relate to hypnotic suggestibility and the extent to which imagery is recruited during response to hypnotic suggestions in psychological and neuroimaging studies. Finally, we briefly consider the roles of imagery and suggestion in clinical applications of hypnosis. We conclude that whilst hypnotic suggestibility may relate to variability in imagination, hypnotic suggestion and voluntary forms of imagery are subserved by dissimilar neurocognitive mechanisms.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Activity in (primary) motor cortex (M1) increases as we imagine actions. Speech imagery occurs when we silently prepare what we want to say before speaking. Past research focused on neural bases of gesture imagery only and not on speech imagery. Theories on the neural organisation of speech attribute a key role to covert motor simulation processes such as imagery. Two processes have been identified: imagery and action observation. These processes differ in two important aspects: while observation is passive and requires exposure to an external stimulus, imagery is active and requires attention, and that can occur without external stimulus. A key role for M1 in motor simulation of speech has not been established.
AIM:
This project tested if and how imagery and observation of speech engaged M1.
METHOd:
We combined Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) with behavioural tasks. When TMS is applied to left speech M1, the relative excitability of M1 and linked lip and tongue muscles is measured using Motor Evoked Potentials (MEPs). We recorded MEPs from lip (study 1a) and tongue (1b) muscles when participants imagined producing simple (1a) or complex (1b) speech actions.
CONCLUSIONS:
The results showed that lip M1 was only in imagery of complex (but not simple) speech actions.

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.
