Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The term “psychometry” describes a type of anomalous cognition (or extrasensory perception, ESP) which permits a psychic (sensitive or seer) to receive impressions using a physical object as inductor to express the information perceived. A sample was recruited by us, that is people who say they possess such abilities, such as persons who have had spontaneous extrasensory experience, and persons who believe although they had not had those experiences.
The psychological evaluation included: Sixteen Personality Factors, Dissociative Experiences Scale, Eysenck Personality Inventory, Anomalous Experiences Inventory, and Paranormal Beliefs Scale to correlate their psychological characteristics. Subjects who reported high scored Experiences measured by AEI were indicative of high DES scores and high Extraversion?s EPI scores. Besides, four parapsychological tests were administered. Objects-target were used in order to obtain statements and all other information relevant during the session.
We obtained psi-hitting in the free-response test (no-object). We believe that this was the most comprehensible of the four ESP tests. This test adds emotional and motivational additional, as compared with the psychometric tests, that may facilitate the ESP. Almost half of the sample (56.3%) manifests not to have control over psi. In addition, 65.2% of the sample manifests not to have attempted ever to control psi, not even once in their lives. The purpose of a quantitative evaluation of the psychics? statements is to establish if these statements are more accurate than expected by chance when compared to other two groups (non-psychics claimants). Analysis post hoc will be published elsewhere.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Research into psychometry, the ability often claimed by psychics to obtain impressions about people from objects that they have owned, has mostly been limited to qualitative analysis because of problems in evaluating free-response material. To date, there has been little interest in exploring psychometry among ordinary people. In this study, a psychometry-based strategy for obtaining ESP hits, using personal objects, was assessed in conjunction with a non-psychometric strategy using picture stimuli in sealed envelopes. Four volunteers served as ‘target persons’ who carried identical objects with them for fifteen days. Seventy-one participants recruited through advertisements then obtained impressions from the token-object and from a picture sealed in an envelope. The target persons blind-scored the participants’ statements. A similar procedure was employed in the non-psychometry condition, a free-response test using visual imagery. The non-psychometry condition resulted in higher scores than those obtained in the psychometry condition (p = 0.006). We conclude that this experiment offers some support for the claim that stimulation of visual imagery is more productive of psi than the use of token objects, at least among ordinary people. It may well be that psychometry involves more complex cognitive processes than we have yet considered.

Comparing psychics and non-psychics through a “token-object” forced choice ESP test

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psychometry is the process by which a psychic or sensitive claims to be able to receive impressions about a person or event using a ‘token-object’ as inductor or instrument. In this study we investigated whether there were significant differences between ‘psychic’ and ‘non-psychic’ people — as measured on an extrasensorial experiences and abilities questionnaire — in their ability to gain accurate impressions using a token object. Seventy-four participants (age range 18–78; M = 48.23; SD = 14.53) were recruited through media advertisements. The experimenters employed blind coding and recoding procedures, and let the participants touch the objects to obtain impressions. Six trials were completed. Participants were categorised as either psychic, ‘ESP skilled’ (N = 44), or non-psychic, ‘ESP experients’ (N = 30). The ESP skilled group scored higher psi-hitting than the ESP experients group, who scored at the level of mean chance expectation. The difference between groups was significant (z = 1.73; p = 0.041, one-tailed). It can be concluded that those participants claiming an ESP ability tended to obtain higher psi-hitting in the forced-choice response test (using a token-object) than those claiming only ESP experiences. Further data analysis revealed high variability between the two groups: participants who claimed ESP abilities generally obtained higher psi-hitting, whereas, among the participants who claimed ESP experiences, some scored high psi-hitting, others high psi-missing.

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.

Comparing a free response test using an object and without object condition: First study exploring the “token-object” effect on an ungifted sample

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psychometry is an anomalous cognition system for psi-detection. For example, psychics have often claimed to have the ability to obtain “impressions” about people from objects that they have owned. Many authors have suggested explanations for psychometry, which are in line with Roll´s “psi field.” Research has mostly been limited to qualitative analysis because psychometry is very difficult to research due to problems in evaluating “free response” material. To date, there has been little interest in the exploration of psychometry among “ordinary” people. In this study, psychometry-based experimental research and ESP hits were compared with visual images to assess strategies. “Psychometric” and “non-psychometric” procedures were counterbalanced. Seventy one unselected, ordinary people (age range= 18-77; Mean= 46.44; SD= 14.03) were recruited as participants by announcements. All participants underwent the two conditions of the psi experiment: the use of token-object and visual images. Test instructions were given to both participants and target persons. Four volunteers carried identical objects with them for fifteen days. Blind coding and recoding procedures were used by the experimenters. Participants “touched” four objects for impressions and completed four trials. Target persons blind scored the participant´s statements. A similar procedure was employed for the free-response test (visual). Targets for both the visual test and the token-objects, were randomly assigned. The non-psychometry condition (p= .005) resulted in higher scores than those obtained in the psychometry condition. The difference between both target conditions (no-psychometry vs. psychometry) was also significant (z-score= 2.65, p= .008, two-tailed). We conclude that this experiment offers some support for the claim that visual image stimulation is more psi-conducive, presumably at least among ordinary people. Psi seems to work better using visual imagery than in a “token object” condition. It may well be that the anomalous cognition with psychometry is a more complex cognitive process than we have considered it to be.

Title:
ESP under the ganzfeld, in contrast with the induction of relaxation as a psi-conducive state
Publication year: 2006

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Ganzfeld stimulation is associated with an increase in attention to internal imagery. Investigators have suggested the association with a view to developing an “experimental hypnagogic” technique in order to facilitate the study of hypnagogic imagery. The present experiment uses a telepathy-focused, non-ganzfeld condition, the findings of which were compared to the ganzfeld technique, in counter-balanced order. One hundred and thirty-eight participants attended two GESP trials at the Institute for Paranormal Psychology, in Buenos Aires. The majority of the participants (93.5%) reported previous personal experiences suggestive of psi. The first author was the experimenter and the second author was the sender for the entire sample. Two questionnaires were administered before, and one after, the ganzfeld session, to evaluate mental activity, bodily changes, pleasant experiences, and change in state of awareness. A CD-R containing 3,500 high-resolution colour pictures was used to provide image-targets. We would conclude that this experiment offered some support to the claim that ganzfeld stimulation is psi-conducive, to the extent that there was a significant difference between the two test conditions, in a direction favouring the ganzfeld condition. Expected percentage of hits was 25%. The ganzfeld gave 41.3% hits, p < .001, the non-ganzfeld 27.5%, and the difference between the two conditions was also significant, p = .016. No relationship was found between prior psi experiences and ESP scores. Nevertheless, we did not conclude that the “good” ESP results using ganzfeld were related to a modified state of consciousness because these results might depend upon other variables independent of the non-ordinary state.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
From the beginning of parapsychology, it has been proposed that objects contain “psi fields,” or localized impersonal memory traces of physical and mental events, such as in the form of ESP known as psychometry or object-reading. Eleven questionnaires, such as Anomalous/Paranormal Experiences Inventory, Neo Personality Inventory –Revised, Constructive Thinking Inventory, Eysenck Personality Questionnaire, Creative Experiences Questionnaire, Seeking-Sensation Scale, Dissociation Experiences Scale, and Tellegen Absorption Scale were administered. Also, EBEA-Q was designed by us. It contains items such as thoughts or feelings at a distance, ESP “feelings” around sick people, around past place events, around token objects, around unknown people, and around token photos. Two hundred fifty nine participants were interviewed individually. Seventy four percent of them (N= 193), both females (76%) and males (24%). Participants ranged 18 to 76 years old. A number of psi-reading tests were designed by us: (1) First ESP test was designed to be used with six of photos paired (three males and three females); (2) second ESP test used token objects into two conditions “at-a-distance” and “face-to-face” with two objects of two human-targets (male and female) in contact with them a couple of minutes; (3) third ESP test was designed used objects token of four human-targets (two male and two female) medically diagnosed (i.e. Hiatal hernia; Diabetes mellitus; Arthrosis of the knee, and Varicose veins) in comparsion with four “control” objects; (4) fourth ESP test was designed with two texts containing a brief self-report written by four human-targets (two males and two females), who attended psychological interviews; (5) fifth ESP test was designed to be used with six recipients, three of them containing sand and water from “holy” places and “control” recipients. For each test, the experimenters delivered each participant (N= 193) the pairs (target and control), counterbalanced, and asked them to indicate their “impressions”.indicate their “impressions”.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psychometry describes a type of anomalous cognition which permits a psychic to experience such impressions using a physical object. A number of psychics have gained a reputation as psychic detectives using such things as photographs, a town map, or a piece of clothing. In fact, many people seem to have a high opinion of the abilities of psychics, but a person's face is an important source of information for identifying others, and conveys significant social information, probably due to its important role in the psychological processes involved in social interaction. The aim of the present study was to compare a group of ordinary people (non-psychics) with selfclaimed psychics in order to determine if participants were capable of distinguishing between living and dead people from photographs of same. The sample consisted of 169 participants divided into two groups: "psychics" (N = 74) and "non-psychics" (N = 95). No significant differences were found. Those participants who claimed to have psychometric ability (that is, were able to pick up impressions from an object by being in physical contact with it) neither obtained psi hitting, nor demonstrated greater variability in their psi hits. One possible interpretation would be that some of the participants in this group had difficulties with correctly interpreting the psi signal.

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.

Publication year: 2009

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psychic reading is a method used to foretell the future of an individual. However, cold reading is a non-paranormal technique used by many self-claimed psychics and mediums to determine details about another person in order to convince them that the reader knows much more about a subject than he or she actually does. We wanted to explore some strategies for using and appraising the so-called "tokenobject" effect common in psychic reading. We planned to follow the design of our earlier research using a psychometry procedure with a sample of ordinary people (non-psychics) and a sample of self-claimed psychics. One of the aims of the study was to determine if the 'psychics' participants could give impressions while touching the objects of two sitters. The experiment was introduced to the participants by telling them that two different conditions, "face-to-face" and "remote" psychometry, were being undertaken using a physical object as psistimuli. The sample consisted of 83 participants. We concluded that those participants who claimed to have psychometry psi ability ("Psychic" group) showed greater psi hitting than "Non-Psychics" in both conditions ("remote" and "face-to-face"). Because face-to-face readings allow for sensory cues, no firm conclusion of "genuine" psi can be justified from such an experiment. Therefore we should treat this significant finding with caution.
