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:
La mayoría de las encuestas llevadas a cabo sobre experiencias parapsicológicas espontáneas muestran que el reporte de éstas parece tener un intenso impacto en la vida emocional de las personas. Estudiar como las personas enfocan su experiencia paranormal puede ayudar a los investigadores a descubrir maneras de ayudar a enfrentarlas. Se llevó a cabo un estudio exploratorio de las características de personalidad, psicopatología, inteligencia y mecanismos de defensa de treinta y dos sujetos quienes participaron de una serie de sesiones de psicoterapia grupal. Los resultados de una bateria de escalas y cuestionarios no revelaron diferencias sustanciales entre esta muestra y poblaciones normalizadas. El puntaje de inteligencia, medido por el PMT, no difiere de la población en general (“término medio”). Hay indicadores de propensidad a la esquizotipia e hipocondría (medido por el MMPI-2, “código 8-1”), y un leve predominio de mecanismos de defensa maníacos sobre los esquizoides, mediante un típico test psicodinámico de administración verbal usado en Argentina. Estos resultados se presentan como una aproximación a las características psicológicas de la muestra, que reporta experiencias parapsicológicas espontáneas. Debido al bajo número de sujetos, no fue posible correlacionar sus experiencias espontáneas con los puntajes de las escalas antes mencionadas.

Personality factors and psi-ganzfeld sessions: A replication and extension

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This is a report of a study of the relationship between personality factors and ESP scores obtained using the ganzfeld technique, which has had a modest but consistent number of successes in various laboratories. Eysenck's (1967) linking of extraversion and arousal was deemed potentially important to ESP performance. The relationship between ESP performance and individual differences and several personality dimensions have been studied, according to Honorton's model which predicts the personality characteristics of successful ganzfeld participants. One hundred and thirty-eight participants attended one ganzfeld session (telepathy-focused) at the Institute of Paranormal Psychology, Argentina. The first author (AP) was the experimenter, who received each participant, and the second author (JV) was sender for each participant. Two personality inventories (the Eysenck Personality Inventory and the Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire) were administered before each ganzfeld session. Overall results of this experiment offered some four personality profiles that arise from a combination of N and E scores. Though this study did not show significant results relating direct hits to E or N scores or the 16PF factors, they were found for sanguine females and choleric male subjects. Cholerics obtained more hits than did melancholics.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This is a report of an experiment of two dimensions of personality (extraversion–introversion and neuroticism) and ESP in the Ganzfeld. Our hypotheses were that ESP high-scores would be related to extraversion high-scores and to neuroticism low-scores. Thirty subjects (receivers) were individually tested in a thirty-minute long Ganzfeld at the Instituto de Psicología Paranormal in Buenos Aires. Each receiver answered two questionnaires before the Ganzfeld session: Eysenck Personality Inventory (EPI), which measure two personality traits (neuroticism and introversion/extraversion) and the Pre-Ganzfeld Questionnaire, which rated their level of relaxation, mood, and expectation of success and motivation. One of us (JV) was the sender for all the sample. Each receiver had to guess a target photograph taken from a CD that had 3,500 color photos of high resolution. We found a significant relationship between extraversion and ESP scores (Fisher’s exact test p= .008, one-tailed, Phi= .482) (N= 25). There were no significant effects between ESP scores and neuroticism (Fisher’s exact test p= .56 [one-tailed]). There were also no significant effects between ESP scores and relaxation, mood, motivation and expectative of success before Ganzfeld session. A discussion of the possibility that the Ganzfeld technique interacts in some way with extraversion and other variables that may explain the significant effect we obtained regarding extraversion-introversion is presented.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
This project was designed to replicate and extend a series of experiments, known as “presentiment” or “pre-stimulus response” experiments, that provide evidence of human emotional system response prior to aversive stimuli.
To examine test-retest reliability 80 subjects were tested on two occasions in an experiment that monitored skin conductance while they viewed briefly exposed images from the International Affective Picture System (IAPS). Subjects also completed the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the NEO-FFI personality tests.
With 64 subjects providing usable data, there was no overall evidence of a presentiment or pre-stimulus response, nor was there any evidence of test-retest reliability. Surprisingly, there were significant correlations between a subject's pre-stimulus response and the MBTI Intuition factor and the NEO-FFI Openness factor, both of which have shown similar relationships in prior ESP research. No other personality factors showed any relationships.
Subsidiary analyses confirmed findings by other researchers that the evidence for pre-stimulus response is not the slow rise of tonic skin conductance levels but rather the accumulation of more non-specific skin conductance responses immediately prior to aversive stimuli. Also, analysis of the data rejected expectancy artifacts as a possible explanation for pre-stimulus response findings.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Subjective validation occurs when a person maintains her/his prior beliefs when given clear and unambiguous evidence to the contrary (Marks & Kammann, 1980; Marks, 2000). This project focused upon the psychological characteristics of people who believe or do not believe in psi, independently of the issue of whether or not the phenomena are real. There were 120 participants who were interested in the paranormal and/or believed they were psychic (62% female, 38% male). To assess schizotypy, the Oxford-Liverpool Inventory of Feelings and Experiences (Mason et al., 1995) was utilized. Fantasizing was measured using the Wilson-Barber Inventory of Childhood Memories and Imaginings: Children’s Form (Myers, 1983). Vividness of visual imagery was measured using the Vividness of Visual Imagery Questionnaire (Marks, 1973), and finally, we used the Transliminality Scale, Form B (Thalbourne, 1998). A Zener Card guessing task was designed to evaluate the participants’ tendency to subjectively validate their beliefs. The first block of 20 trials was arranged to enable participants to obtain double the chance rate (from 20 to 40%) of successful predictions. The second block of 20 trials was arranged to decrease the prediction rate. Subjective validation, assessed by measuring participants’ confidence level during block 2, had a correlation of .64 (p < .001) with psychic beliefs indicating that high subjective validators also have a strong tendency to proclaim personal psychic powers. A significant association also occurred between three of the schizotypy scales and beliefs in their psychic abilities:
unusual experiences (r =.43, p<.001), impulsive non-conformity (r=.41, p<.001), and cognitive disorganization (r =.38, p<.001). Significant correlations also occurred between psychic beliefs and fantasizing (r= .46, p<.001) and the VVIQ (r = .58, p <.001).
Discussion:
This study helped to identify the characteristics of people who strongly believe in personal psychic powers in spite of disconfirmation of their beliefs by actual physical events. Psychic believers have a strong tendency to subjectively validate and have personality characteristics that are linked to schizotypy, fantasizing, and vivid visual imagery. This is result which will not surprise many scientists and sceptics of the paranormal. However it is a result that should give pause to those who continue to claim the existence of powers and phenomena for which there is objective evidence.

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.

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.
