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.

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.

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

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Often people have strong reactions when they think they have had a psychic or “psi” experience. A survey of anomalous/paranormal experiences which was designed by us was administered to a undergraduated university students (N=392). More than half say to have experienced—at the least several times - phenomena such as telepathy (66.3%) and ESP dreams (50.7%), past lives recalls (32.1%) and RSPK (42.8%). Four anomalous/ paranormal experiences revealed a high tendency to disturb, such as mediumship, possession, RSPK, and spiritual contact (almost two thirds). The third part also indicated not to have consulted actually for counceling about their experiences. Ninety four percent were not looking for orientation. Relatives, friends and acquaintances were the more consulted.

Interacción entre susceptibilidad hipnótica y experiencias disociativas en una población que reporta experiencias anómalo/paranormales
Publication year: 2006
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
There are reliable statistical relationships between hypnotic susceptibility, psychological dissociation, and paranormal experiences. We hypothesized that subjects with greatest hypnotic susceptibility would report the most paranormal experiences. Similarly, we expected that persons with the most dissociative experiences would report the most paranormal experiences. We also hoped to find interactions between hypnotic susceptibility and dissociation with paranormal experiences. We administered the Anomalous Experiences Inventory (AEI), the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) and the Harvard Group Scale (HGS) of hypnotic susceptibility to 67 subjects (73.1% female, 26.9% male), believers in a variety of paranormal events and motivated by their own experiences. A factor analysis showed an interaction between hypnotic susceptibility and dissociation. In subjects with little hypnotic susceptibility we found that dissociation strongly favored paranormal experiences. However, for those subjects scoring medium and medium-high on hypnotic susceptibility, the effect of dissociation was lost. In highly susceptible subjects, the effect was even reversed. Subjects scoring low and medium-low on dissociation but high on hypnotic susceptibility reported more paranormal experiences (r= .458). Subjects scoring high or medium-high on dissociation but high on hypnotic susceptibility reported fewer paranormal experiences (r= .358).

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
This research extended to a neuropsychiatric population findings by Neppe and by Persinger that subjective paranormal experiences (SPEs) are associated with temporal lobe dysfunction (TLD) in the brain. The sample consisted of 100 of Neppe’s patients. TLD was defined by 4 diagnostic criteria: (a) symptomatology as measured by 16 TLD-specific items from Neppe’s INSET questionnaire; (b) predisposing conditions (recreational drugs, brain damage); (c) anomalous electroencephalographic (EEG) activity; and (d) response to anti-convulsant drugs. SPEs were measured by questions on the INSET referring to ESP, apparitional, and out-of-body experiences. TLD criteria and SPEs were coded independently by 2 raters. 60 patients classified as having TLD had more SPEs than 27 patients who were not (p<.05, one-tailed). 13 borderline patients on TLD were removed. Supplementary regression analyses revealed that this result was due entirely to symptoms (INSET) as predictor (p < .001). Females reported significantly more TLD symptoms and SPEs than males, but this confound did not destroy the INSET-SPE relationship. Phone interviews of 20 patients reporting SPEs confirmed that the great majority had at least one credible ESP experience. Secondary analyses using as predictors specific INSET items and EEG variables indicated that ESP experiences were positively associated with rightside lateralization (left-hemisphere dominance), and high scores on auditory/visual hallucinations and jamais vu. ESP experiences were most common among females with relatively highfrequency EEG abnormalities in the left temporal (and to a lesser degree) left frontal brain areas, but that were not generalized. This effect significantly reversed for males.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Following up on previous research indicating a relationship between symptoms of temporal lobe dysfunction (TLD) and subjective paranormal experiences, exploratory logistic regression analyses were conducted to discover specific predictors of subjective ESP experiences (S-ESP) among 100 neuropsychiatric patients of Neppe. Predictors included gender, age, 16 items from a questionnaire measuring symptoms of TLD (INSET), clinical and ambulatory EEG measures reflecting the location and type of anomalous EEG activity, measures of handedness and brain laterality, use of specific recreational drugs, and brain injuries. The final model defined the S-ESP group as right-lateralized females scoring high on INSET items reflecting jamais vu and primitive visual or auditory hallucinations. A significant interaction was found between gender and EEG anomalies occurring in the temporal lobes and sometimes extending to adjacent areas, but not generalized over the whole scalp. These anomalies were positively related to S-ESP in females and negatively in males. The effect for females was contributed entirely by activity other than slowing (mostly spiking, sharp waves, and bursts of beta or alpha) that occurred in the left hemisphere, sometimes extending bilaterally to the right temporal, or the frontal lobes. These exploratory findings need to be cross-validated before the results can be considered conclusive.

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.

Haunted by somatic tendencies: spirit infestation as psychogenic illness

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
It has been suggested that haunting and poltergeist episodes are akin to outbreaks of contagious psychogenic illness. Therefore, it might be expected that hypochondriacal and somatic tendencies would significantly predict self-reported experiences of 'spirit infestation' and other paranormal ideations. This prediction was tested on a sample of 314 undergraduate students who completed the Anomalous Experiences Inventory, the Transliminality Scale and three standard questionnaires about hypochondriasis, somatic complaints, and cognitions about body and health. Results from correlational and regression analyses supported predictions, although we found that the type of bodily cognition varied with the specificity of the paranormal experience. For example, indices of spirit infestation coincided with autonomic sensations, perceived paranormal ability was related to catastrophizing cognitions, and general paranormal experiences correlated with somatization traits. Transliminality and paranormal belief contributed positively to nearly all of these associations. These findings are consistent with the idea that some paranormal experiences are partly misattributions of internal experience to external (paranormal) sources - a process that could initiate an episode of contagious (mass) psychogenic illness by encouraging the collective perception of similar 'symptoms' in a group of people due to suggestion and demand characteristics.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The purposes of this study are to (1) evaluate la frequency and percentage of fourteen types of experiences; (2) measure the degree of emotional impact; and (3) relate each experience to demographic variables such as gender, age, marital status, birth order, religion and spirituality. To this end an online survey was designed to participants who were interested in topics such as “new age”, esotericism and a range of anomalous, spiritual and paranormal psychological experiences (N = 1733; 70% female, 30% males; median age = 31,31). Results show that the most frequent experiences were telepathy, premonitory dreams, sensations
of a presence, and déjà-vu. Results also show that the most disturbing experiences were related to feelings of possessions, negative hallucinations and spontaneous psychokinesis.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
There seems to be a link between schizotypal symptoms and spiritual experience whereby, in the normal population, individuals with spiritual experiences also indicate relatively high levels of experiences and schizotypal thinking. However, positive features of schizotypy are dominant, for example, magical ideation and unusual perceptual experiences, which are substantially opposite of negative symptoms such as anhedonia, emotional difficulties and interpersonal deficits. For this study, compared to a sample of psychology students “not spiritual” (N = 71) and “spiritual” (N = 131) of both sexes, 24% males and 76% women, age range 17-57 years (average = 24.31, SD = 6.78). Spirituality here is defined as the set of thoughts, ideas, and attitudes unstructured associated with the mystical feeling of unity, not linked to any religious doctrine. There are three hypotheses: (1) you will find a significant difference in positive symptoms of schizotypy between the two groups of students, but (2) will be no significant difference in the negative, and (3) that usually associated with paranormal experiences schizotypy (such as telepathy, see auras, out of body experiences, sense of presence and see apparitions) correlate positively and significantly with positive symptoms of schizotypy rather than the negatives. We found a significant difference in positive symptoms of schizotypy among the group of students ‘spiritual’ (Mean = 14.32) and “spiritual” (Mean = 12.63) (p = .02) but not significant for negative symptoms, was found further that all paranormal experiences correlated significantly with positive symptoms of schizotypy (telepathy r = .25, see the aura r = 15, out of body experiences r = 25, r = sense of presence 33, and see apparitions r = 28, all p <.001, two tailed). Although paranormal phenomena such as telepathy and see the aura is not correlated with negative symptoms of schizotypy, however, found a significant correlation between out of body experience (r = .07, p = .03), sense of presence (r = 11, p = .002) and see apparitions (r = .12, p <.001, two tailed) with negative symptoms, although substantially lower than in the positive symptoms. Possibly mild schizotypal beliefs and experiences may not only be pathological, but positive and beneficial to the individual.

Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

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

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
An online survey was designed for people interested in themes such as new age, esotericism and sympathizers of a diversity of anomalous, religious and paranormal psychological experiences (N= 1733; 70% women and 30% men, age mean= 31,31). The purposes of this study were: (1) to evaluate frequency and percentage of fourteen dfferent kinds of experiences, (2) to measure the degree of their emotional impact, and (3) to relate each experience to demografic variables as gender, age, marital status, birth order, religion and spirituality. The most frequent experiences are telepathy, premonitory dreams, feeling a presence and déjà-vu. The most disturbing ones are possession, negative hallucination and spontaneous psychokinesis. Seeing auras, OBE and healing experiences related with both positive and negative emotions. Women tended to report more experiences when compared to men. A relationship between spirituality and frequency of experiences was observed, which could mean that these experiences reinforce spirituality. Online polls have advantages and disadvantages. They represent a fast, accessible and effective way to collect cases, but attract individuals with specifc interests.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Three schizotypy profile groups were identified in this project through cluster analytic procedures; one group with low or average scores on the O-LIFE sub-scales as compared to norm data and the whole group of participants (Low/Average schizotypy), one group with high scores on the positive schizotypy sub-scale and low scores on the other sub-scales (Positive schizotypy), and one group with high scores on the positive and disorganised schizotypy sub-scales (Positive/Disorganised schizotypy).
The Low/Average and Positive schizotypy groups had no worse mental health or cognitive functioning than the general population. Thus, the hypothesis that the schizotypy profile group with a high degree of positive schizotypy together with low degrees of the other schizotypy factors (compared with norms) would not differ from norms regarding cognitive function was confirmed.
The Positive/Disorganised schizotypy group had worse mental health compared to norm data and this group also had cognitive functioning below the average range regarding four sub-tests measuring executive function. However, the results from the cognitive tests were inconclusive since this group had scores within the average range on two other cognitive tests.
These results support the fully dimensional model for schizotypy and indicate that for some people positive schizotypy should not be regarded as a sign of mental ill-health or as a symptom.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The project consisted of two phases. Phase I (respondents 1215) sought to develop a new measure of paranormal belief (the Manchester Metropolitan University New, MMU-N). Principal components analysis identified eight factors: Hauntings, Alien Visitation, Superstition, Psychokinesis, Religious Beliefs, Astrology, ESP and Witchcraft. Each factor was coherent, possessed conceptual clarity and demonstrated good internal reliability. The MMU-N measure overall and its subscales correlated positively with: traditional measures of paranormal belief (Revised Paranormal Belief Scale, & Australian Sheep Goat Scale), anomalous beliefs (urban legends & conspiratorial beliefs) and paranormal experiences. Additionally, the MMU-N correlated with reality testing1 deficits in a manner similar to the established paranormal measures. Phase II (responents 305) examined the degree to which specific probabilistic biases (misperception of chance & conjunction fallacy) were associated with belief in the paranormal and reality testing. Participants completed measures assessing probabilistic reasoning, belief in the paranormal and reality testing. Findings were consistent across belief measures. The best predictor of paranormal belief and reality testing deficits was perception of randomness. Comparisons (below vs. above the median) supported this finding. The results provide support for the notion that paranormal believers are more likely to misinterpret chance phenomena as non-random. Proneness to standard conjunctions was not associated with belief in the paranormal. However, believers solved fewer paranormal conjunctions than non-believers.
Footnote1: This project was approved on the understanding that reality testing and cognitive bias would be explored rather than schizotypy.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We present results of experiments suggesting the existence of one or more perceptual modalities through which individuals obtain information about their environment, although this information is not presented to any known sense. The literature1–3 and our observations lead us to conclude that such abilities can be studied under laboratory conditions.
We have investigated the ability of certain people to describe graphic material or remote scenes shielded against ordinary perception. In addition, we performed pilot studies to determine if ectroencephalographic (EEG) recordings might indicate perception of remote happenings even in the absence of correct overt responses.
We concentrated on what we consider to be our primary responsibility - to resolve under conditions as unambiguous as possible the basic issue of whether a certain class of paranormal perception phenomena exists. So we conducted our experiments with sufficient control, utilizing visual, acoustic, and electrical shielding, to ensure that all conventional paths of sensory input were blocked. At all times we took measures to prevent sensory leakage and to prevent deception, whether intentional or unintentional.
Our goal is not just to catalogue interesting events, but to uncover patterns of cause-effect relationships that lend themselves to analysis and hypothesis in the forms with which we are familiar in scientific study. The results presented here constitute a first step toward that goal; we have established under known conditions a data base from which departures as a function of physical and psychological variables can be studied in future work.
