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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVE:
The H-coils are a new development in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) research, allowing direct stimulation of deeper neuronal pathways than does standard TMS. This study assessed possible health risks, and some cognitive and emotional effects, of two H-coil versions designed to stimulate deep portions of the prefrontal cortex, using several stimulation frequencies.
METHODS:
Healthy volunteers (n=32) were randomly assigned to one of four groups: each of two H-coil designs (H1/H2), standard figure-8 coil, and sham-coil control. Subjects were tested in a pre-post design, during three increasing (single pulses, 10 Hz, and 20 Hz stimulation sessions, as well as 24-36 h after the last stimulation.
RESULTS:
The major finding of the present study is that stimulation with the novel H-coils was well tolerated, with no adverse physical or neurological outcomes. Computerized cognitive tests found no deterioration in cognitive functions, except for a transient short-term effect of the H1-coil on spatial recognition memory on the first day of rTMS (but not in the following treatment days). On the other hand, spatial working memory was transiently improved by the H2-coil treatment. Finally, the questionnaires showed no significant emotional or mood alterations, except for reports on 'detachment' experienced by subjects treated with the H1-coil.
CONCLUSIONS:
This study provides additional evidence for the feasibility and safety of the two H-coil designs (H1/H2).
SIGNIFICANCE:
The H-coils offer a safe new tool with potential for both research and clinical applications for psychiatric and neurological disorders associated with dysfunctions of deep brain regions.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Neuroimaging studies showed that dorsal attention network (DAN) and default mode network (DMN) control “external/environmental” (i.e. endogenous and reflexive visual-spatial attention) vs. “internal” (i.e. body state, semantic memory, self-referential information) cortical information processing. Nevertheless, recent studies showed that parietal regions of DAN are less involved in the visuo-spatial attention when subjects perform the task after an intensive training.
AIM
We tested the hypothesis of a causal role of AG and IPS (and by extension the role of the DMN and DAN) in the regulation of cortical neural synchronization mechanisms (reflected by alpha rhythms) in two different cognitive domains (i.e. semantic memory and visuo-spatial attention). Furthermore, in a parallel study we tested the hypothesis that the causal role of IPS observed in the visuo-spatial attention become less important when subjects perform the task after an intensive training.
RESULTS
We found that both performance and anticipatory alpha de-synchronization were affected by stimulation of IPS only during visuo-spatial attention, and of AG only during semantic decisions. Moreover, we report that during a shape identification task only inhibitory TMS interference with visual cortices (V2d/V3 and LO) impaired behavioural performance, whereas interference with IPS did not.
CONCLUSIONS
Our results indicate a clear double dissociation of task by cortical location, suggesting the existence of multiple dedicated parietal channels for the modulation of anticipatory alpha rhythms. Moreover, only activity in topographically appropriate visual regions is causally involved in identifying learned shapes

Publication year: 2016

http://cercor.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2016/09/02/cercor.bhw278.abstract
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Alpha (8-12 Hz) power desynchronization is strongly associated to visual perception but has been observed in a large variety of tasks, indicating a general role in task anticipation. We previously reported in human observers that interference by repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of core regions of the dorsal attention network (DAN) disrupts both anticipatory alpha desynchronization and performance during a visuospatial attention (VSA) task. Here, we test the hypothesis that alpha desynchronization is task specific, and can be selectively modulated by interfering with activity in different higher-order parietal regions. We contrast the effects of rTMS on alpha rhythms and behavior on 2 different tasks: a VSA and a semantic decision task, by targeting the posterior intraparietal sulcus (pIPS), a core region of the DAN, or the angular gyrus (AG), a core region of the default mode network (DMN). We found that both performance and anticipatory alpha desynchronization were affected by stimulation of IPS only during VSA, and of AG only during semantic decisions. These findings indicate the existence of multiple dedicated parietal channels for the modulation of anticipatory alpha rhythms, which in turn reflect task-specific modulation of excitability in human parieto-occipital cortex.

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.
