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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
Research has demonstrated a clear relationship between acute stress and mucosal immunity but far less research has examined the role of recent or chronic stress in mediating mucosal immune levels. In this study we examine the relationship between the stability of mucosal immunity and stress over the preceding days, weeks and year.
METHODS:
In study one sixty-nine undergraduates gave passive drool saliva samples six times throughout the day (immediately after waking, 30 and 60 minutes after waking & 7pm, 9pm and before retiring for the day) over four consecutive week days. In study two eighty-nine participants provided saliva samples immediately after waking and at 7pm for up to 10 days. Standardised questionnaires were used to measure participants perceived stress and life events over the preceding days, weeks and year. Saliva samples were
analysed for immunoglobulin A concentration (IgA) and total protein levels.
RESULTS:
We found little evidence of a relationship between average levels of mucosal immunity and measures of stress but, as hypothesised, we did find evidence of a relationship between measures of stress and the stability of mucosal immunity over time, though the direction of effect in the two studies were not consistent. The IgA/ protein ratio, a potential measure of the degree to which changes in IgA are IgA specific or general changes in protein, was also linked to previous experience of stress.
CONCLUSION:
Measures of mucosal immune stability may provide a useful index of immune functioning that captures more of the complexity of immunity than simply averaging consecutive samples. The IgA/ protein ratio is a measure of mucosal immune function that appears to be inversely linked to previous stressful experience and is a useful measure for future study.

Stability and flexibility in cognitive control: Interindividual dynamics and task context processing
Publication year: 2019

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Adaptive behaviour requires cognitive control for shielding current goals from distractors (stability) but at the same time for switching between alternative goals (flexibility). In this behavioural study, we examine the stability-flexibility balance in left- and right-handers during two types of decision-making, instructed (sensory cued) and voluntary (own choice), by means of distractor inhibition and hand/task switching. The data revealed that both groups showed opposite tendencies for instructed decision-making. Moreover, right-handers resisted distracting information more efficiently whereas left-handers showed superior switching abilities. When participants were involved in voluntary decision-making, no effects of handedness were noted, which suggests that free-choice processing alters the balance between stability and flexibility. These data illustrate that handedness is an index of individual variation during instructed decision-making, biasing the proficiency of cognitive control towards stability and flexibility of information processing. These biases can however be overruled by top-down strategies that dominate during voluntary decision-making. Overall, the research underlines the antagonistic functions of stability and flexibility in decision-making, and offers an approach for examining cognitive control and the role of internal and external factors in balancing the stability-flexibility trade-off.
