Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Fear of pain (FOP) and its effect on placebo analgesia was investigated. It was hypothesized that FOP should interfere with placebo-mediated pain inhibition and result in weaker placebo responding in pain intensity, pain unpleasantness, stress, and event-related potentials to contact heat pain. Thirty-three subjects participated in a balanced 2 condition (natural history, placebo)×3 test (pretest, posttest 1, posttest 2) within-subject design, tested on 2 separate days. FOP was measured by the Fear of Pain Questionnaire and subjective stress by the Short Adjective Check List. Placebo effects were found on reported pain unpleasantness and N2 and P2 amplitudes. FOP was related to reduced placebo responding in pain unpleasantness, but this was only evident for the subjects who received the placebo condition on day 1. Subjects who received the placebo condition on day 1 experienced more pretest stress than those who received the placebo condition on day 2 (ie, reversed condition order), and this explained the interaction effect on placebo responding. FOP was related to reduced placebo responding on P2 amplitude, whereas placebo responding on N2 amplitude was unaffected by FOP. Higher placebo responses on N2 and P2 amplitudes were both related to higher placebo analgesic magnitude in pain unpleasantness. In conclusion, increased FOP was found to reduce subjective and electrophysiological placebo analgesic responses.

Publication year: 2012

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Fear was induced by the anticipation of electric shock in order to investigate whether fear reduced the effectiveness of a placebo intervention on reported pain and the acoustic startle reflex. Thirty-three subjects participated in a 3 Condition (Natural History [NH], Placebo [P], Placebo + Fear [PF]) x 3 Test (Pretest, Posttest 1, Posttest 2) within-subject design, tested on 3 separate days. Measures of fear were fear of pain (FOP), measured by the Fear of Pain Questionnaire (FPQ-III); fear-potentiated startle; and a self-report measure that assessed the effectiveness of the fear induction procedure. In the pain intensity data, there was a trend towards a placebo effect. This trend was abolished by induced fear, and was most pronounced in subjects who were highest in measures of fear. The placebo manipulation also caused a reduction in startle reflex amplitude. This effect was abolished by induced fear, and was strongest amongst high FOP subjects. In conclusion, induced fear abolished placebo analgesia, and this effect was strongest in subjects who had high scores on measures of fear.

Visibility predicts priming within but not between people: a cautionary tale for studies of cognitive individual differences
Publication year: 2014

http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1309/1309.3396.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
With resurgent interest in individual differences in perception, cognition and behavioral control as early indicators of disease, endophenotypes, or a means to relate brain structure to function, behavioral tasks are increasingly being transferred from within-subject settings to between-group or correlational designs. The assumption is that where we know the mechanisms underlying within-subject effects, these effects can be used to measure individual differences in those same mechanisms. However, between-subjects variability can arise from an entirely different source from that driving within-subject effects, and here we report a clear-cut demonstration of this. We examined the debated relationship between the visibility of a masked-prime stimulus and the direction of priming it causes (positive or reversed). Such reversal of priming has been hypothesized to reflect an automatic inhibitory mechanism that controls partially activated responses and allows behavioral flexibility. Within subjects, we found an unambiguous systematic transition from reversed priming to positive priming as prime visibility increased, replicated 7 times, and using different stimulus manipulations. However, across individuals there was never a relationship between prime discrimination ability and priming. Specifically, these data resolve the controversial debate on visibility and reversed priming, indicating that they arise from independent processes relying on partially shared stimulus signals. More generally, they stand as an exemplar case in which variance between individuals arises from a different source from that produced by stimulus manipulations.

Motor timing and covariation with time perception: Investigating the role of handedness
Publication year: 2017

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5559439/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Time is a fundamental dimension of our behavior and enables us to guide our actions and to experience time such as predicting collisions or listening to music. In this study, we investigate the regulation and covariation of motor timing and time perception functions in left- and right-handers who are characterized by distinct brain processing mechanisms for cognitive-motor control. To this purpose, we use a combination of tasks that assess the timed responses during movements and the perception of time intervals. The results showed a positive association across left- and right-handers between movement-driven timing and perceived interval duration when adopting a preferred tempo, suggesting cross-domain coupling between both abilities when an intrinsic timescale is present. Handedness guided motor timing during externally-driven conditions that required cognitive intervention, which specifies the relevance of action expertise for the performance of timed-based motor activities. Overall, our results reveal that individual variation across domain-general and domain-specific levels of organization plays a steering role in how one predicts, perceives and experiences time, which accordingly impacts on cognition and behavior.

Visual, sensorimotor and cognitive routes to understanding others' enjoyment: An individual differences rTMS approach to empathic accuracy
Publication year: 2018
URL:
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0028393218300496?via%3Dihub
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Functional imaging studies suggest that accurate understanding of others' emotional feelings (i.e., empathic accuracy, EA) recruits high-order visual, sensorimotor and mentalizing brain networks. However, the behavioral relevance of these findings is unclear. To fill in this gap, we used repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) to interfere with the right superior temporal sulcus (STS), inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) and temporoparietal junction (TPJ) during an EA task requiring participants to infer the enjoyment felt by a social target while smiling/laughing. Relative to a baseline condition (sham rTMS), active rTMS of STS, IFG and TPJ (but not of a control site) disrupted the efficiency of EA task performance, mainly by lowering task accuracy; rTMS of IFG and TPJ also slowed down response speeds. Importantly, the effects of rTMS on EA task efficiency were predicted by baseline EA performance, with high-performers showing a performance decrease when the TPJ was targeted, and low-performers showing a performance decrease when the STS or the IFG was targeted. The double dissociation in the effect of rTMS between low- and high- performers suggests distinct roles of STS, IFG and TPJ in efficient understanding of the enjoyment felt by others. These findings provide causal evidence of distinct visual, sensorimotor and cognitive routes to EA and suggest that individual differences in EA are underpinned by differential recruitment of these routes.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Individual differences in infant stress reactivity may have a lasting effect on development. The goal of this project was to explore individual differences in infants’ reactivity to a repeated standard stressor, the Face to Face Still Face (FFSF) in which periods of face-to-face play are alternated with periods in which the mother maintains a “poker” face and does not engage the infant. The play and FFSF were repeated until either the infant became distressed (crying for 30 seconds) or the infant completed three SF-Play repetitions. Two baseline salivary samples were followed by three post-distressed samples to allow tracking of response and recovery. This design resulted in two stress categories, infants who exhibited distress and did not complete the paradigm and infants who did complete the paradigm. There were no differences in salivary cortisol or sAA between the two groups. However, a positive relationship was found between baseline cortisol levels and the peak post-stress levels suggesting that the Law of Initial Values may not need to be considered when analysing salivary cortisol changes in infants. The findings also highlight the importance of considering baseline values in stress reactivity. A statistical trend showed that infants who dropped out had greater baseline cortisol and sAA levels. In conclusion, the findings question the use of salivary cortisol and salivary alpha-amylase as measures of social stress in early infancy. The results also suggest that we have yet to identify appropriate measures of individual differences in infants’ stress reactivity. The finding of a relation between cortisol baseline levels and reactivity suggests that there are indeed individual differences in cortisol functioning.

Absorption and spiritual experience: A review of evidence and potential mechanisms

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Some people seem to have a ‘talent’ for spiritual experience: they readily sense the presence of supernatural beings, receive special messages from God, and report intense feelings of self-transcendence, awe and wonder. Here we review converging strands of evidence to argue that the trait of 'absorption' captures a general proclivity for having spiritual experiences. Participants scoring highly on the Tellegen Absorption Scale report vivid experiences of hearing God's voice during prayer, intense mystical experiences in response to psychedelics or placebo brain-stimulation, and strong feelings of presence and transcendence when confronted with natural beauty, virtual reality, or music. Several mechanisms may help to explain the relationship between absorption and spiritual experience. We suggest that absorption captures an experiential mindset that intensifies inner and outer sensory experience in ways that reflect both prior expectation and novel sensory engagement. It seems to enable that which must be imagined to feel more real.

Resting-state connectivity reveals a role for sensorimotor systems in vocal emotional processing in children

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Voices are a primary source of emotional information in everyday interactions. Being able to process non-verbal vocal emotional cues, namely those embedded in speech prosody, impacts on our behaviour and communication. Extant research has delineated the role of temporal and inferior frontal brain regions for vocal emotional processing. A growing number of studies also suggest the involvement of the motor system, but little is known about such potential involvement. Using resting-state fMRI, we ask if the patterns of motor system intrinsic connectivity play a role in emotional prosody recognition in children. Fifty-five 8-year-old children completed an emotional prosody recognition task and a resting-state scan. Better performance in emotion recognition was predicted by a stronger connectivity between the inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) and motor regions including primary motor, lateral premotor and supplementary motor sites. This is mostly driven by the IFG pars triangularis and cannot be explained by differences in domain-general cognitive abilities. These findings indicate that individual differences in the engagement of sensorimotor systems, and in its coupling with inferior frontal regions, underpin variation in children’s emotional speech perception skills. They suggest that sensorimotor and higher-order evaluative processes interact to aid emotion recognition, and have implications for models of vocal emotional communication.

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.

Resting-state functional connectivity within the dorsal pathway predicts auditory emotion recognition in children

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Understanding others´ emotional states from variations in the `tone of voice´ - emotional prosody - is crucial for personal and social adjustment. Recognizing emotions in prosody relies on an interplay between several brain regions along the ventral and dorsal auditory pathways (Sammler et al., 2015). While the role of temporal and inferior frontal cortices in vocal emotional recognition is well established (e.g., Fruehholz & Grandjean, 2013), an emerging body of work also suggests a potential involvement of the motor system (e.g., Lima et al., 2015; Sammler et al., 2015). The aim of our study was to examine if the motor system plays a role in emotional prosody processing. Specifically, we examined if functional connectivity between the motor system and well-established brain regions implicated in vocal emotional processing indexes behavioural differences in emotion recognition performance. Fifty-five children (aged 8.31 ± 0.32 years; 23 male) completed a resting-state fMRI protocol, and an offline behavioural emotional recognition task including four emotions (happiness, sadness, anger, fear) plus neutrality. Resting-state data were analysed using a hypothesis-driven seed-based correlation approach: the auditory cortex, superior temporal cortex (STC) and inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) were considered as seeds, and the motor cortex as target. We found that a stronger connectivity between IFG and motor regions predicts a better ability to recognise prosodic emotions. Furthermore, follow-up analyses within IFG subregions indicate that this result is mostly driven by the IFG triangularis (BA45). Taken together, these findings suggest that the motor system plays a role in predicting vocal emotional recognition abilities in children, adding to the emerging evidence on the role of the dorsal pathway regions in prosodic processing. At a broader level, this study contributes to delineating the neural mechanisms supporting vocal emotional processing during development.
