Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper discusses the current practice of using single word labels for emotional states that ignore the nature of the incentive, cognitive representations, physiologic profile, and especially the developmental stage of the agent. The universal cognitive advances that are derivatives of brain maturation over the first dozen years are accompanied by significant emotional states that infants and young children cannot experience. The cognitive transitions at the end of the first year, the middle of the second year, 5–7 years and early adolescence have special implications for affect states.

Improvement of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) coils for psychiatric applications
Publication year: 2008

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
To design and test new coils for transcranial magnetic stimulation of deep brain structures. Efficient stimulation of structures such as the nucleus accumbens and other limbic regions is necessary for the successful application of TMS in psychiatry.
METHODS:
TMS coils specially designed for deep stimulation (H1 and H2 coils) were tested on 31 normal subjects and on 50 drug resistant patients suffering from major depression. Numerical methods were used to predict the electric field induced by these coils and to investigate ways to improve their performance.
RESULTS:
In normal subjects rTMS stimulation at 1, 10 or 20 Hz was well tolerated with no major side effects. Auditory thresholds measured by audiograms indicated no hearing loss of any of the subjects. No evidence was found for a possible deterioration in cognitive performance due to rTMS. No epileptic convulsions were experienced.
TMS treatment 5 days per week for 4 consecutive weeks was well tolerated by the depressed subjects, with no major side effects or adverse physical outcomes. The average HAM-D scale dropped significantly from 31.3 ± 5.0 prior to TMS to 16.2 ± 9.9 on the day after completion of therapy. There was no significant difference between the coils, however the H1 coil tended to induce greater antidepressant effects. The CANTAB performed before, during and after the study indicated selective improvement in cognitive functions, especially spatial memory and executive function.
Numerical calculations based on 3D models of the H1 and H2 coils placed over the head phantom produced results in good agreement with measured values. Clear improvements in coil performance (stimulus intensity, depth and focality) were predicted only when iron cores were added to the coils.
CONCLUSIONS:
The safety and effectiveness of the novel H1 and H2 coils were demonstrated. The use of high permeability cores is the best way to improve the performance of these coils.

The biophysical bases of will-less behaviors
Publication year: 2012
URL:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3478585/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Are there distinctions at the neurophysiological level that correlate with voluntary and involuntary actions? Whereas the wide variety of involuntary behaviors (and here mostly the deviant or pathological ones will be considered) will necessarily be represented at some biophysical level in nervous system activity–for after all those cellular activity patterns manifest themselves as behaviors and thus there will be a multiplicity of them–there could be some general tendencies to be discerned amongst that assortment. Collecting observations derived from neurophysiological activity associated with several pathological conditions characterized by presenting will-less actions such as Parkinson's disease, seizures, alien hand syndrome and tics, it is proposed that a general neurophysiologic tendency of brain activity that correlates with involuntary actions is higher than normal synchrony in specific brain cell networks, depending upon the behavior in question. Wilful, considered normal behavior, depends on precise coordination of the collective activity in cell ensembles that may be lost, or diminished, when there are tendencies toward more than normal or aberrant synchronization of cellular activity. Hence, rapid fluctuations in synchrony is associated with normal actions and cognition while less variability in brain recordings particularly with regards to synchronization could be a signature of unconscious and deviant behaviors in general.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Neurofeedback, one of the primary examples of self-regulation, designates a collection of techniques that train the brain and help to improve its function. Since coming on the scene in the 1960s, electroencephalography-neurofeedback has become a treatment vehicle for a host of mental disorders; however, its clinical effectiveness remains controversial. Modern imaging technologies of the living human brain (e.g., real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging) and increasingly rigorous research protocols that utilize such methodologies begin to shed light on the underlying mechanisms that may facilitate more effective clinical applications. In this paper we focus on recent technological advances in the field of human brain imaging and discuss how these modern methods may influence the field of neurofeedback. Toward this end, we outline the state of the evidence and sketch out future directions to further explore the potential merits of this contentious therapeutic prospect.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Neurofeedback with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI-nf) heralds new hope concerning the self-regulation of brain and behavior. Theoretically, modulating specific brain activations promises to tailor cognition, emotion, thought, and action; however, reducing complex mental health issues to circumscribed neural regions remains elusive. Empirically, findings from the vast majority of fMRI-nf experiments suggest that we can self-regulate diverse brain activations, yet replication of behavioral findings remains sparse. Here we provide a systematic review that integrates and synthesizes information from 78 primary fMRI-nf research experiments – the bulk of currently available information. To disentangle placebo influences and establish the specific effects of neurofeedback, we highlight the need for double-blind, sham-controlled studies with rigorous and standardized statistical analyses. We further elucidate the value of comparing neural activation and behavior after neurofeedback to pre-training baseline measures, initial trials, and data from control participants. To drive fMRI-nf toward clinical inclusion, relevant studies must confirm the sustainability, transferability, and practicality of fMRI-nf in patient populations. We can change brain activations with fMRI-nf; however, additional carefully designed experiments would have to unravel whether this technique constitutes an effective biobehavioral intervention.

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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
EEG neurofeedback appears to both improve normal brain function and treat a wide range of mental disorders, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, depression, anxiety, insomnia, autism spectrum disorder, and alcoholism. Despite a relatively long history, however, the medical community continues to question the clinical utility of this technique. To earn widespread appellation as evidence-based medicine, neurofeedback must meet three challenges: 1) perform at least on par with standard-of-care treatments in randomized controlled trials for each disorder where neurofeedback purports to help; 2) consistently outperform highly comparable placebo control conditions (e.g., sham neurofeedback); and 3) establish a clear mechanism for the claimed therapeutic benefits. In this talk, we will elucidate the crosstalk between placebo science and neurofeedback, including fMRI-nf.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The integration of complementary neuroimaging and neurosignaling modalities allows us to obtain a comprehensive view of the structural and functional brain properties and to extend the spatiotemporal domain investigated. In this chapter will explore the domains of multimodal integration that seem to be more relevant in the study of the cerebral bases of psychiatric disorders as an essential contribution to the construction of a personalized and broad-spectrum model of brain anatomy and function, useful in the early identification of risk or diagnostic profiles and in the planning of effective treatment strategies.
