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.

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: RESULTS:
This project aims at investigating the efficacy of a multimodal stress management program for health professionals using both psychophysiological and psychosocial indicators. The data collection has three phases. In Phase 1, a General stress diagnosis was offered to the entire staff of a central hospital (n=705). Using the GHQ-12, a higher prevalence of stress was found in the health professionals than in other comparable international studies.
In Phase 2, subjects with high levels of stress were given the opportunity to participate in an in depth stress diagnosis consisting of psychosocial, clinical and psycho-physiological measures. Results show that Social support, coping style and intensity of job demands are related to many self-reported stress responses such as Denial, Pressure, Anxiety, Depression, Guilt, Anger and Loss of Control. In Phase 3, a Stress Management Intervention was given to half of the subjects and the other half to a control group (wait list). The Experimental group had a 8-session group intervention with Evaluation times for E and C groups at Pre-test, Post-test, and at a 2 month follow up. Due to a difficulty in maintaining the subjects throughout the project, the third phase had a small sample size, and, although tentative, the data points to the effectiveness of the intervention in terms of diminishing physiological stress reactivity, negative emotional responses to stress and in increasing social support, a crucial stress coping mechanism. These changes seem to be maintained over the 2-month follow-up.
The products of this project are the development of a rigorous stress protocol, as well as a detailed stress management program manual.

Work stress and job satisfaction in Portuguese health professionals

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
This report is based on a study of Portuguese health professionals in health centers in the northern region of Portugal. The sample is comprised of 114 physicians, 125 nurses and 129 administrative personnel from northern health centers. The subjects were given the Portuguese versions of the Brief Personal Survey, the Job Descriptive Index and the Job in General scales. The data show significant negative correlations between stress responses and the JDI scales, and positive correlations between these scales and reported coping resources. The responses of Anger-Frustration and Depression seem to have the most impact on job satisfaction, in the negative sense.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Placebo analgesia is the reduction in pain after administration of an inert substance together with information that the substance is a painkiller.
EXP 1: Do positive expectations of drug treatment lead to decreased stress that mediate placebo analgesia? Stress was not affected. Placebo analgesia was seen in males only. All the experimenters were female nurses. Exp. 2 investigated whether the presence of a male or female experimenter modulated pain report in males and females.
EXP 2: Males who reported pain to females reported lower pain compared to males reporting to males. Females reported similar pain to both male and females. To investigate whether males who report lower pain to females feel less pain, or just report lower pain, Exp. 3 investigated the physiological response to pain in males and females tested by males and females.
EXP 3: Measures of heart rate variability (HRV), indicating autonomic response, were included. HRV to pain stimuli was similar in males reporting to females and males reporting to males, indicating that the response to pain was the same in both females and males. Thus, social context modulated pain report but not pain sensation.
EXP 4: Nocebo hyperalgesia is increased pain after administration of treatment signalling increased pain. A conditioned stimulus (CS) signalled the onset of pain. The CS increased pain report compared to control. The CS also increased stress and sympathetic response.
CONCLUSION:
Placebo analgesia is not related to decreased stress. Nocebo hyperalgesia is related to increased stress. Social context influences pain report. The effect of social context must be taken into consideration in all studies where pain is subjectively recorded.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objective - Information that a painkiller has been administrated induces an expectancy of reduced pain, and the expectancy has been shown to reduce pain. This is termed placebo analgesia. We hypothesized that an expectancy of reduced pain reduces stress.
Methods - The present study (N=84) investigated this hypothesis. To further study the effects of stress and emotions on pain, we provided information about the pain stimulus to half the subjects. Pain was induced by the submaximum tourniquet technique.
Results - Expectations and pain information both decreased pain to the same degree, but independently, and only in males. Lower pain was not related to subjective stress, cortisol, or circulating beta-endorphin. All experimenters were women, and the finding of placebo analgesia only in males fits well with findings that males report less pain to female experimenters.
Conclusion - Placebo analgesia is not related to stress and is influenced by the social context in which pain is recorded.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
There is an inconsistency within the literature concerning whether acute stress leads to an increase or decrease in mucosal immunity. We examined this inconsistency using parachute jumping as an ecologically valid method of inducing acute stress coupled with psychological and physiological measures of stress on the day of the jump and seven days before and after it. Twenty-eight novice tandem jumpers participated in this study along along with thirty one non-parachute controls. The parachutists completed a daily questionnaire assessing levels of stress and provided a 2-minute unstimulated saliva sample on each of the seven days before the parachute jump, the day of the jump and the seven days after the jump. A sub-group of 12 parachutists provided saliva samples before and after the parachute jump. Saliva samples were analysed for cortisol, a measure of physiological stress, and immunoglobulin A (IgA), a measure of mucosal immunity. There were significant and substantial increases in IgA and cortisol following the jump indicating that the parachutists found the experience stressful and that this lead to an increase in mucosal immunity. These increases seem transient as there was no indication of any physiological or psychological change in the evening measures on the day of the jump or the days that followed. In conclusion, using an ecologically valid acute stressor we found evidence of a substantial but transient increase in mucosal immunity with no evidence of supression. Acute stressful situations appear to provide a brief enhancement of the mucosal immune system with no evidence of any detrimental effects.

Collecting saliva for psychoimmune research: Is it better to collect samples in the morning or the evening?
Publication year: 2006

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Saliva samples for mucosal immune analysis are typically collected in the afternoon or evening when levels are at their lowest. However, morning collection may be more appropriate for research examining the relationship between enduring stress and immunity as evening measures may be more susceptible to the effects of daily stress. From a more technical perspective, it is vital to know which collection time provides researchers with the best chance of usable saliva samples.
METHODS:
Fifty-three undergraduate psychology students provided two daily saliva samples, one upon awakening and a second in the evening, for five consecutive days. Saliva samples were collected via passive drooling. Participants completed a daily questionnaire containing questions about stress, mood, cold symptoms and alcohol consumption and a general questionnaire containing measures of stress and distress over the previous month.
FINDINGS:
Mean saliva flow rate – a key factor as low saliva flow rates can mean insufficient saliva for analysis - was significantly higher in evening samples (mean morning flow rate = 238.90µl, mean evening flow rate = 329.62µl, t(47) = -4.221, p=.000). Daily and monthly measures of stress did not show significant relationships with either morning or evening daily salivary flow rates.
DISCUSSION:
Health psychologists intending to carry out effective research into stress-illness relationships require sound methodology. Future research should therefore use evening saliva collection, which provides more samples with sufficient saliva for analysis. Furthermore, saliva flow in the evening does not appear to be adversely affected by the stress reported by participants during the day.

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.

Final report - Serving two masters: job characteristics as predictors of psychosocial and psychophysiological responses to stress in physicians and nurses in managerial positions
Publication year: 2007

Abstract/Results: RESULTS::
Objectives: 1) compare managers/subordinates on stress and job characteristics, 2) test the Demand Control (DC) and Effort-Reward Imbalance (ERI) occupational stress models, 3) pilot-test the ecological momentary assessment (EMA) of stress and job characteristics with the ambulatory measure of physiological stress indicators.
1. Hierarchical position is important in terms of stress and job characteristics. The “head doctors/nurses” show stress vulnerability, especially in autonomic arousal, related to work characteristics (demand, control and reward). They showed high Overcommitment, a style of coping that has negative effects on well being and work.
2. The DC model did not predict job stress by questionnaire or self-report real time data, but predicted heart rate/systolic blood pressure. The ERI model explained job stress better by questionnaire and real time data, predicting higher stress. Reward was particularly significant for systolic blood pressure. The study of positive and negative emotions at work was an innovative contribution. Demand and Control were related to Negative Affect, and Strain predicted feeling energetic and alert. Organizational interventions which increase control and reward will reduce negative emotional responses and increase positive affect, with positive outcomes on health and work.
3. Our study has contributed two important methodological aspects. 1) Measure stress with a variety of indicators. The combination of self-report and objective measures, as well as longitudinal evaluations, should be used in future studies of job stress. 2) Pioneer the use of EMA in Portugal. This innovative methodology allows the study of links between job characteristics and psychological/biological responses.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The way people process stressors is critical in determining whether or not trauma will be experienced. Some clinical and neuroimaging findings suggest that posttraumatic stress disorder patients experience difficulty in synthesizing the traumatic experience in a comprehensive narrative. Religiousness and spirituality are strongly based on a personal quest for understanding of questions about life and meaning. Building narratives based on healthy perspectives may facilitate the integration of traumatic sensorial fragments in a new cognitive synthesis, thus working to decrease post-traumatic symptoms. Given the potential effects of spiritual and religious beliefs on coping with traumatic events, the study of the role of spirituality in fostering resilience in trauma survivors may advance our understanding of human adaptation to trauma.

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:
There is an inconsistency within the literature concerning whether acute stress leads to an increase or decrease in mucosal immunity. One reason for the inconsistent findings is the use of laboratory ‘stress’ tasks that lack ecological validity. In addition, the majority of research has focussed on immune changes immediately before or after the stress-inducing task. In this research we used parachute jumping as an ecologically valid method of inducing acute stress coupled with psychological and physiological measures of stress on the day of the jump and seven days before and after it.
METHODS:
28 novice tandem jumpers participated in this study along with 31 non-parachute controls. The parachutists completed a daily questionnaire assessing levels of stress and provided a 2-minute unstimulated saliva sample on each of the seven days before the parachute jump, the day of the jump and the seven days after the jump. The control participants also completed the daily stress questionnaire and provided a saliva sample for 15 consecutive days. A sub-group of 12 parachutists provided saliva samples before and after the parachute jump. Saliva samples were analysed for cortisol, a measure of physiological stress, and immunoglobulin A (IgA), a measure of mucosal immunity.
RESULTS:
There were significant and substantial increases in IgA and cortisol following the jump indicating that the
parachutists found the experience stressful and that this lead to an increase in mucosal immunity. These increases seem transient as there was no indication of any physiological or psychological change in the evening measures on the day of the jump or the days that followed.
CONCLUSIONS:
Using an ecologically valid acute stressor we found evidence of a substantial increase in mucosal immunity. This increase is brief and within an hour IgA levels are back to normal with no evidence of suppressed IgA in the days that follow. Acute stressful situations appear to provide a brief enhancement of the mucosal immune system with no evidence of any detrimental effects.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
Part 1 - to compare morning salivary cortisol response, sleep questionnaires and dream reports between patients with parasomnias, normal subjects and patients with insomnia.
Part 2 – to pilot the use of automatic blood sampling overnight for cortisol assay synchronized with polysomnography in 6 normal subjects, to assess the minute by minute effect of sleep stage on cortisol measures, and to compare morning dream reports with plasma cortisol and salivary cortisol on awakening.
METHODS:
Part 1 - patients with sleep disorders and healthy good sleepers were provided with a pack containing
cotton swabs for saliva sampling and overnight sleep and dreaming questionnaires. Patients with parasomnias were sent sample kits for 2 nights, 1 with and 1 without an episode (eg night terror). 16 patients and 15 healthy good sleepers returned the packs and salivary cortisol concentration was measured in-house using radio-immunoassay.
Part 2 - 6 healthy volunteers slept in the sleep laboratory. An automated sampling machine has been developed at Bristol University to minimise interference with study subjects when taking blood samples. They were prepared for polysomnography (PSG) and had an indwelling cannula connected ‘through the wall’ to the sampling machine. Blood samples (1ml) were taken every 10 minutes, synchronised with the PSG recording. Samples were later assayed for cortisol. Sleep was scored and the cortisol levels related to different sleep stages.
RESULTS:
Part 1- morning cortisol response was as expected in healthy normal sleepers with a rise between waking
and 30 minutes later. Insomnia patients and parasomnia patients on a ‘good’ night had a similar response with both readings being slightly higher. On the ‘bad’ nights readings were very variable with no consistent rise between the 2 time periods. Waking cortisol levels correlated with complaints of waking too early. Dream report analysis will be presented.
Part 2 – synchronized hypnograms and cortisol profiles will be presented. Cortisol levels fell during the first few hours of sleep and then showed a rise independent of sleep stage about halfway through the night, consistent with the literature. In addition, both awakenings and REM sleep tended to increase cortisol level. Awakening cortisol response occurred from any stage of sleep and at any time of day.
CONCLUSIONS:
Part 1 - Insomnia and parasomnia subjects had higher cortisol levels than controls but this was not
statistically significant. However we demonstrated a significant relationship between cortisol levels and subjective measures of sleep quality and early awakening. Dreaming effects will be discussed.
Part 2 – The automatic sampling method was reliable and effective in obtaining frequent cortisol samples without interfering with sleep. There was evidence of both circadian and sleep-stage-dependent regulation of night-time cortisol level.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The ability to shift between different behavioral strategies is necessary for appropriate decision-making. Here, we show that chronic stress biases decision-making strategies, affecting the ability of stressed animals to perform actions on the basis of their consequences. Using two different operant tasks, we revealed that, in making choices, rats subjected to chronic stress became insensitive to changes in outcome value and resistant to changes in action-outcome contingency. Furthermore, chronic stress caused opposing structural changes in the associative and sensorimotor corticostriatal circuits underlying these different behavioral strategies, with atrophy of medial prefrontal cortex and the associative striatum and hypertrophy of the sensorimotor striatum. These data suggest that the relative advantage of circuits coursing through sensorimotor striatum observed after chronic stress leads to a bias in behavioral strategies toward habit.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Placebo analgesia is the reduction in pain after administration of a placebo with information that it will reduce pain. We have shown that placebo analgesia can be objectively recorded by physiological measures (electromyography, heart rate variability, and event-related potentials (ERP)). Reduced ERPs indicate that placebos activate descending pain inhibitory pathways. The placebo response, or more precisely, the expectation of drug effects, can add to the effect of the drug. There is some evidence that placebo effects are strongest when expectations are reinforced by administration of an active drug. Of special importance to the present project was the investigation of the role of stress and negative emotions in placebo analgesia. Our hypothesis was that the placebo reduced stress and nervousness, and thereby reduced pain. Fear of pain was positively related to stress both during pain and in the anticipation of pain, and negatively related to placebo analgesia. However, other factors also contribute to the placebo analgesia. The present findings suggest that decreased stress may strengthen the placebo response. This may have important clinical consequences, as stress reduction could aid in treatment of pain. Furthermore, male subjects responded with lower stress after placebo medication, and larger placebo responses. These findings suggest that males respond differently to verbal placebo information compared to females. It is not know whether this is due to more effective pain inhibitory mechanisms in males, or to cognitive factors. In sum, there is a contribution of reduced stress to placebo analgesia, and for reasons unknown this effect is larger in males.

Title:
Is fear of pain related to placebo analgesia?
Publication year: 2010

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0022399909004553
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVE:
Verbal information that a painkiller has been administered generates an expectation of pain relief which in turn decreases pain. This expectation-based pain reduction is termed placebo analgesia. We hypothesized that fear of pain would be related to higher stress and pain intensity and to reduced placebo analgesia.
METHODS:
Sixty-three students (30 females) participated in a Two-Condition (placebo, natural history)xFive-Test (one pretest, four post-tests) within-subjects design. Heat pain was induced by a 30x30-mm contact thermode to the medial volar forearm. Each pain test lasted for 4 min at a temperature of 46 degrees C. Stress, arousal, and pain intensity and pain unpleasantness were rated on 100-mm visual analogue scales.
RESULTS:
Fear of pain was related to higher anticipatory stress and to higher stress and pain intensity during pain. Fear of pain was also related to reduced placebo analgesic responding.
CONCLUSION:
Fear of pain was positively related to stress both during pain and in the anticipation of pain, and negatively related to placebo analgesia. Previous research has indicated a role for increased stress in the nocebo response, and the present findings suggest that decreased stress may strengthen the placebo response.
