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.

A parapsychological investigation of the theory of psychopraxia: Experimental and theoretical researches into an alternative theory explaining normal and paranormal phenomena
Publication year: 2001
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Describes a series of four experiments which were conducted to test the theory of psychopraxia. The thesis is an investigation of the theory from the perspective of paranormal phenomena only. It is argued that the theory of psychopraxia is important to the field of parapsychology because it offers (a) a philosophical critique on taken-for-granted assumptions about the nature of the paranormal, (b) relatively unambiguous terminology, and (c) a process-oriented approach to investigations of the paranormal by concentrating on conditions deemed necessary in bringing about paranormal effects. The thesis concludes that, in its current form, the psychopraxia model needs clarification of its most crucial concepts ("self", "pro-attitude" and "necessary conditions") before it can be regarded as a workable theory.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The traditional view in parapsychology is that ESP and PK are separate and distinct categories of psi. However, M. A. Thalbourne’s (1982, in press) theory of psychopraxia is put forward as an alternative interpretation of the paranormal that assumes there is no necessity for making that distinction. Central to this theory are 4 components: the self; the so-called pro attitude, or preference for a particular outcome; the set of necessary conditions which, together with the pro attitude, are sufficient for the outcome; and the outcome, or goal state itself. Psychopraxia may operate endosomatically or, as considered in the present case, exosomatically as psi. An examination of 12 major meta-analyses covering 9 paranormal domains is presented as evidence that the mean effect sizes (here taken as “norms”) cannot be differentiated by their magnitude alone in terms of ESP and PK categories. The evidence from these meta-analyses supports instead the single paranormal process postulated in the theory of psychopraxia. It is further argued that the absence of perceived complexity (a psychological state) in regard to the mechanical setup of the experiment is a necessary condition conducive to psychopraxia. Theoretical, experimental, and meta-analytic findings support the psychopractic hypothesis that the ESP–PK dichotomy is untenable.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
An experiment on exosomatic psychopraxia was conducted in which 42 wholly or partially blind participants were matched for age and sex with 42 sighted participants. The experimental task was to describe, paranormally, a randomly selected drawing concealed in aluminium foil and a manila envelope. Every second participant was assigned to a relaxation treatment (audio tape). Following their attempted description of the target, participants were required to rank-order 4 drawings (1 the target, and 3 the decoys). For the whole sample, based on the rankings by participants (but not those of an independent judge), the sum-of-ranks statistic was significantly positive (z = -2.98, p = .002, two-tailed), as it was also for the sighted participants (z = -2.41, p = .016, two-tailed), whereas results for the vision-impaired were not significant. The relaxation tape appeared not to induce relaxation, at least as indicated by the heart rate measure, but the ‘relaxed’ groups (the whole sample, and the sighted group, but not the vision-impaired group) scored marginally better than the respective non-relaxed groups. Belief in ESP did not affect scores in the expected direction. We refer to the significant and marginally significant effects as evidence of exosomatic psychopraxia (the latter effects indicating that relaxation might have been conducive to psychopraxia). However, a specific mode of psychopraxia¾compensation¾was not found in the vision impaired group.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
L. Storm and M. A. Thalbourne (1998–1999) carried out an experiment (N = 93) with the Chinese book of divination the I Ching (J. Blofeld, 1968), which contains 64 hexagrams (6-line structures) and associated readings. Three coins are thrown 6 times to generate 1 of these hexagrams. Participants selected 16 of 64 hexagram–descriptor pairs, based on their emotional and/or cognitive states of mind. It was predicted that 1 of the 16 choices would come up as a “hit” (PMCE = .25). The proportion of hits was marginally significant. Transliminality and 6 factors on R. B. Cattell’s 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF; R. B. Cattell, H. W. Eber, & M. M. Tatsuoka, 1970) correlated significantly with hitting success. Number of changing lines (given by throwing 3 heads or 3 tails) was not significantly different from chance, but number of changing lines did correlate significantly with transliminality. Number of changing lines also correlated with 5 factors on the 16PF. Finally, transliminality correlated with 5 factors on the 16PF. A replication experiment (N = 107) was conducted in 1999. Hexagram hitting was significant, but the transliminality–hitting correlation and the 6 hitting–16PF correlations were not significant. Also, the transliminality–changing lines correlation and the 5 changing-lines–16PF correlations were not significant. However, 4 transliminality–16PF correlations were significant. The successful parapsychological outcomes were interpreted according to the theory of psychopraxia (L. Storm & M. A. Thalbourne, 2000; M. A. Thalbourne, 1982, in press-a).

A computerized symbol-identifying experiment was conducted to test Thalbourne’s (2004) concept of the ‘‘pro attitude’’ (an attitude towards a favorable outcome in a normal or paranormal task). Participants were required to identify the correct symbols randomly presented on computer in a run of 50 trials. Skeptics were given a second run. After each run, hit-rates were presented on screen. A subgroup of randomly selected skeptics were informed that scores, if sufficiently high or low, indicate statistical evidence of psi. It was hypothesized that news of this information (the ‘‘treatment’’) would alter the pro attitude of some skeptics and lead them to try to score at chance, rather than risk producing scores that might indicate psi. A significant correlation between hitrate and belief in psi after treatment (but not before treatment) was found for ‘‘converted’’ skeptics (i.e., ‘‘new believers’’ in psi). Post hoc evidence showed a significantly high hit-rate on symbol identification after conversion (but not before conversion). These results suggest a ‘‘conversion effect’’ in some skeptics, thus indicating a change in pro attitude. It was concluded that further research on the pro attitude is warranted since evidence of same may help identify sources of paranormal effects.

The effects of intuition and attitudes towards gambling on ESP performance during a gambling task

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In the present study, evidence was sought for the presence of compliant and noncompliant pro attitudes in a forced-choice cardidentifying experiment. The pro attitude is an orientation of the self towards a specific and preferred paranormal outcome or goal (Thalbourne, in press). The experiment was designed to encourage participants to adopt a pro attitude towards only one of two card outcomes (spade-hitting or club-hitting). This protocol would yield evidence in the form of psi effects that indicated by inference that participants
either acted with compliance (they followed the experimenter’s instructions) or noncompliance (they did not follow the experimenter’s instructions). The modifying effects of three attitudes/dispositions on paranormal performance were also investigated – (i) attitudes towards gambling, (ii) belief in good luck, and (iii) intuition. High scores on the above-mentioned attitudes/dispositions were hypothesised as being conducive to, and necessary for psi. There was (i) a significant negative relationship between the compliant psi outcome
(i.e., spade-hitting) and the noncompliant psi outcome (i.e., club-hitting), and (ii) a negative relationship between club-hitting and attitude toward horse racing. There was post hoc evidence of significant relationships between psi and Intuiting (introverted and extraverted) for moderate scorers on the Gambling Attitude Scales (using aggregate scores), and evidence of a replicated forced-choice psi effect.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
This study with the I Ching is the fourth in a series (N = 200). There are 64 readings corresponding to so-called “hexagrams”, and the P is asked to select 16 hexagram descriptor-pairs that match the statement “Lately, or right now, I feel . . .” The P then throws three coins six times to produce an outcome hexagram. If this outcome matches one of the 16 pre-selections, then the P makes a hit. A previous finding was replicated although it only approached significance. Exploratory analyses revealed no reliably significant correlations with the three psychopractic measures (i.e., 1st-hexagram hitting, 2nd-hexagram hitting, and changing lines), but there were a number of additional psychological correlates of transliminality.
Ps from the above study (n = 8) took part in an experiment using the ProComp+ neuro-feedback apparatus. Feedback on computer was given during normal and paranormal tasks switched at irregular intervals. During normal modes, Ps were required to keep EEG alpha rhythm above threshold, and/or integrated EMG amplitude below threshold, in order to elicit positive feedback. During paranormal modes, a single frame from the animation was presented, which did not change regardless of alpha and/or EMG amplitudes. It was hypothesized that (i) video anomalies occur during paranormal modes, and (ii) EEG alpha amplitude is higher, and/or integrated EMG amplitude is lower during paranormal modes. Previous meditation and biofeedback experience had no effect on EEG alpha amplitude or EMG. Some participants showed evidence of waveform training. Transliminality correlated with alpha and EMG in the hypothesized directions, but only approached significance in the Transliminality/alpha correlation.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
A questionnaire survey was administered to 92 participants, containing, in order, the Boundary Questionnaire, the Rasch Mystical Experience Scale, and the Transhumanation Scale, which were incidentally found to correlate together positively and significantly. A subgroup of these participants (N = 71) also underwent an experiment in exosomatic psychopraxia (a.k.a. psi) carried out using a random number generator (RNG). The RNG was so set up that there were 100 binary trials in each run, and 50 runs per session, of which just one was given, yielding a psychopractic measure called “scoresum”. Scoresum did not correlate significantly with transhumanation or its four subscales (mystical experience [6 items], paranormal experience, World of Spirit, or Kundalini), mystical experience [19 items], thin boundaries, age, sex, a pro attitude scale, perceived complexity, or perceived difficulty. A composite personality measure was formed: participants in group 1 (N = 20) were high in transhumanation, reported mystical experience and had “thin” boundaries; participants in Group 3 (N = 20) were low in transhumanation, reported little mystical experience and had “thick” boundaries; Group 2 (N = 31) consisted of all those participants with mixed scores and who thus did not fall into either of the above two groups. Parapsychological results were suggestively rather than definitely significant, in regard to the differences between scoresum for Groups 1 and 3, and various position effects. In contrast, with regard to purely psychological analyses, there was a large number of significant and meaningful results.

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.
