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:
The present experiments focus on the skills involved in the traditional Japanese martial art called "toh-ate". Toh-ate is a non-contact attack by one person against another when the two are separated by some distance. For the experiments, 6 pairs of veteran practitioners of martial arts participated. Three pairs were practitioners of Japanese martial arts and the other pairs were practitioners of Chinese qigong. As control, 6 pairs (non-trainees) participated; these persons had no martial arts training. Two subjects of a pair were put in separate rooms with communicational deprivation and the experimenters measured physiological changes of one of the two, acting as a Receiver, when the other, acting as a Sender, attempted to make a remote attack on the Receiver at a distance. The Receiver was seated in a Farady cage and the Sender performed only one "sending" motion per 80-second trial on double blinded and randomized conditions. When the Sender or Receiver pushed a switch as the event marker, output signals were produced. The signals were recorded as the sending time or the response time, along with physiological data, by recorders. No anomalous changes of average gradient of skin temperature of the Receiver's palm were observed around the sending time. Totally 797 data were available for analyses of time coincidence between motions of the Sender and Receiver. There was no significant coincidence at time-difference is 0sec. However, two pairs of Chinese qigong practitioners showed 5% significance peaks at +11sec. If these delay peaks were caused by toh-ate, their sending performances were longer than several seconds.

Meditators and non-meditators: EEG source imaging during resting
Publication year: 2009

http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10548-009-0107-4
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Many meditation exercises aim at increased awareness of ongoing experiences through sustained attention and at detachment, i.e., non-engaging observation of these ongoing experiences by the intent not to analyze, judge or expect anything. Long-term meditation practice is believed to generalize the ability of increased awareness and greater detachment into everyday life. We hypothesized that neuroplasticity effects of meditation (correlates of increased awareness and detachment) would be detectable in a no-task resting state. EEG recorded during resting was compared between Qigong meditators and controls. Using LORETA (low resolution electromagnetic tomography) to compute the intracerebral source locations, differences in brain activations between groups were found in the inhibitory delta EEG frequency band. In the meditators, appraisal systems were inhibited, while brain areas involved in the detection and integration of internal and external sensory information showed increased activation. This suggests that neuroplasticity effects of long-term meditation practice, subjectively described as increased awareness and greater detachment, are carried over into non-meditating states.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Experienced Qigong meditators who regularly perform the exercises "Thinking of Nothing" and "Qigong" were studied with multichannel EEG source imaging during their meditations. The intracerebral localization of brain electric activity during the two meditation conditions was compared using sLORETA functional EEG tomography. Differences between conditions were assessed using t statistics (corrected for multiple testing) on the normalized and log-transformed current density values of the sLORETA images. In the EEG alpha-2 frequency, 125 voxels differed significantly; all were more active during "Qigong" than "Thinking of Nothing," forming a single cluster in parietal Brodmann areas 5, 7, 31, and 40, all in the right hemisphere. In the EEG beta-1 frequency, 37 voxels differed significantly; all were more active during "Thinking of Nothing" than "Qigong," forming a single cluster in prefrontal Brodmann areas 6, 8, and 9, all in the left hemisphere. Compared to combined initial-final no-task resting, "Qigong" showed activation in posterior areas whereas "Thinking of Nothing" showed activation in anterior areas. The stronger activity of posterior (right) parietal areas during "Qigong" and anterior (left) prefrontal areas during "Thinking of Nothing" may reflect a predominance of self-reference, attention and input-centered processing in the "Qigong" meditation, and of control-centered processing in the "Thinking of Nothing" meditation.

Title:
Active intracerebral areas (EEG LORETA) in non-meditators and experienced meditators differ during resting
Publication year: 2009

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Do experienced meditators and meditation-naïve people have different brain functional states during no-task resting 19 channel EEG was recorded (versus average reference) from 8 QiGong meditators with 3. 30 years experience (mean 11.5+/-8.8) and 9 meditation-naïve controls (mean ages 41+/- 10 years (3 males), and 37+/-6 years (3 males), respectively) during eyes closed rest (sitting; meditators did not meditate). All artifact-free 2-second EEG epochs (mean 33.9+/-8.5/subject) were recomputed into intracortical 3 dimensional generator distributions using LORETA (2394 voxels) for each subject and each of the 8 EEG frequency bands. Results were normalized per frequency band and subject (total current density across all LORETA voxels scaled to 1). Current density of all voxels was tested (t tests) for differences between groups for each frequency band. An exceedance proportion test correcting for multiple testing identified voxels at p<0.05. Only differences in delta frequency band (1.5-6 Hz) were significant (355 voxels): 229 were stronger, 126 weaker in meditators than controls. All but 4 stronger voxels were in anterior areas (BA 9, 10, 11, 44, 45, 46, 47), 81 of them left, 144 right; all weaker voxels were in central-posterior areas (BA 4, 6, 7, 18, 19, 22, 30, 31, 32, 37, 39, 40), 107 of them left, 19 right. - In sum: during task-free resting, experienced meditators had different brain states compared to non-meditators. Meditators had stronger delta EEG activity than non meditators in frontal cortex (64% right hemisphere voxels), and weaker delta activity in central-posterior cortex (85% left hemisphere voxels). In view of the general assumption that EEG delta activity represents inhibition, experienced meditators have stronger inhibitory activity than controls anterior right-preponderant, and less inhibitory activity central-posterior predominantly left. These results suggest that meditators reduce internal information processing while enhancing input and output processing, an interpretation that agrees with the meditators’ subjective experience of disengaging from perceived information.

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.

Title:
EEG frequency-band LORETA distinguishes meditation from resting in Qigong meditators
Publication year: 2009

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
AIMS:
Common across schools of meditation is the ultimate goal of calming of the mind, implying mental detachment of the self from mundaine preoccupations. The question arises how brain activity during optimal meditation differs from task-free resting. We studied this in experienced Qigong meditators.
METHODS:
19 channel EEG was recorded from eight meditators (mean age: 41.5 years, SD = 10.4; mean meditation experience: 11.5 years, SD = 8.8, range 3-30) during optimal meditation condition (10 minutes, instruction: ‘thinking of nothing’) and task-free eyes closed resting, i.e. 4 minutes before (‘pre-rest’) and 4 minutes after meditation (‘post-rest’). Artifact-free EEG average/subject: meditation 355 sec (SE = 47), pre-rest 85 sec (SE = 3.9), post-rest 78 sec (SE = 4.1). LORETA tomography analysis [1] was used to compute electric source strength in 2394 cortical voxels separately for the eight independent EEG frequency bands of delta 1.5-6 Hz, theta 6.5-8 Hz, alpha1 8.5-10 Hz, alpha2 10.5-12 Hz, beta1 12.5-18 Hz, beta2 18.5-21 Hz, beta3 21.5-30 Hz and gamma 35-44 Hz for each condition and subject. Voxel-wise, ‘difference C’ was computed as statistical comparison of electric source strenght between ‘difference A’ (the difference between meditation and pre-rest) and the corresponding ‘difference B’ (the difference between meditation and post-rest), separate for each frequency band, using t tests corrected for multiple testing.
RESULTS:
Only the alpha 2 band yielded significant results of difference C. All significant cases involved voxels where pre-rest as well as post rest differed from meditation in the same direction. All significant voxels were in the left hemisphere. Meditation had higher power (total 12 voxels: in left temporal sup. and inf. gyrus (BAs 20, 22), left parahippocampal gyrus and hippocampus (BAs 35, 26)), and lower power in left association cortex (21 voxels in BA 7, 2 in BA 5).
CONCLUSIONS:
The results show that meditation compared to rest induces changes only in the EEG high alpha frequency band and only in left hemisphere. Accepting that increased alpha band power implies inhibition, the LORETA results during mind-calming meditation suggest reduced functioning of left hemisphere memory processes and increased functioning of association processes, conceivably reflecting decreased personalizing of fleeting associations. Supported in part by Bial Foundation grant 44/06.
