Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In this paper, we present a multimedia system named BioBeAMS (Bio-signal Behavior Attachment Multimedia System) for assessment of attachment organizations and heart rate in a strange situation experimental procedure for a mother to child attachment study (a well known psychological procedure). Attachment patterns assessed through this procedure have been conceived as different strategies to regulate the access to relevant attachment information and to process distress-related information. The psycho-physiological activation led by emotional processing of attachment experiences during the strange situation procedure may be a critical factor for understanding the subject's psychological attachment strategies. BioBeAMS is an application which integrates bio-signals, video/audio of the psychological experimental procedure and the rater's coding, running in the MS Window 95 environment on a PC. Using this system, we can acquire ECG signals and capture video and audio in a synchronous way. It also enables the raters to subsequently analyze and evaluate psychological and physiological events during review to study possible relations

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Brain imaging performed during a variety of psychophysical experiments has demonstrated that specific neocortical areas change their activity when subjects are experiencing other subjects. Where in the brain self/other awareness is represented is an emerging area of investigation. We have addressed the neuronal dynamics of interpersonal interactions using simple psychophysical paradigms while recording brain activity using magnetoencephalography (MEG). We build on current concepts of brain function and propose that the coordinated (synchronized) activity in distinct cortical areas will reveal brain regions involved in "self" versus "others" processing. In general, the analysis of synchronization of cortical regions derived from the MEG recordings revealed enhanced synchronization between the activity of the midline and the prefrontal cortex,
and that the midline cortex synchronizes its activity with parietal areas as well. The pattern of synchronization was similar when study participants experienced noxious stimuli (a selfadministered painful stimulus to the fingers of the right hand) as when they were watching films of other people or animals experiencing pain. However, these synchronization patterns differed from those obtained when the participants visualised photographs of faces, themselves included. We thus conclude that midline and prefrontal cortices are important in the processing of sensory painful stimulation, and in generating empathy towards others' pain. We expect that these studies will serve as preliminary background to undertake the investigation of reflective self-awareness and its relation to interpersonal transactions.

Fluctuations in neuronal synchronization in brain activity correlate with the subjective experience of visual recognition
Publication year: 2007

http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10867-007-9041-4
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The scientific study of subjective experience is a current major research area in the neurosciences. Coordination patterns of brain activity are being studied to address the question of how brain function relates to behaviour, and particularly methods to estimate neuronal synchronization can unravel the spatio-temporal dynamics of the transient formation of neuronal assemblies. We report here a biophysical correlate of subjective experience. Subjects visualised figures with different levels of noise, while their brain activity was recorded using magnetoencephalography (MEG), and reported the moment in time (corresponding to a noise level) of figure recognition, which varied between individuals, as well as the moment when they saw the figure more clearly, which was mostly common among the participants (thus less subjective). This latter moment is considered to represent psychophysical stochastic resonance (PSR). Fluctuations in neuronal synchronization, quantified using a diffusion coefficient, were lower in occipital cortex when subjects recognised the figure, for a certain noise level, but did not correlate with the moment of PSR. A different pattern was observed in frontal cortex, where lower values of the diffusion coefficient in neuronal synchronization was maintained from the moment of recognition to the moment of PSR. No specific pattern was found analysing signals from temporal or parietal cortical areas. These observations provide support for distinct synchronization patterns in different cortical areas, and represent another demonstration that the subjective, first-person perspective is accessible to scientific methods.

BIAL Foundation Archive
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.

Altered Brain Connectivity and Network Topological Organization in a Non-ordinary State of Consciousness Induced by Hypnosis

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Hypnosis has been shown to be of clinical utility; however, its underlying neural mechanisms remain unclear. This study aims to investigate altered brain dynamics during the non-ordinary state of consciousness induced by hypnosis. We studied high-density EEG in 9 healthy participants during eyes-closed wakefulness and during hypnosis, induced by a muscle relaxation and eyes fixation procedure. Using hypotheses based on internal and external awareness brain networks, we assessed region-wise brain connectivity between six ROIs (right and left frontal, right and left parietal, upper and lower midline regions) at the scalp level and compared across conditions. Data-driven, graph-theory analyses were also carried out to characterize brain network topology in terms of brain network segregation and integration. During hypnosis, we observed (1) increased delta connectivity between left and right frontal, as well as between right frontal and parietal regions; (2) decreased connectivity for alpha (between right frontal and parietal and between upper and lower midline regions) and beta-2 bands (between upper midline and right frontal, frontal and parietal, also between upper and lower midline regions); and (3) increased network segregation (short-range connections) in delta and alpha bands, and increased integration (long-range connections) in beta-2 band. This higher network integration and segregation was measured bilaterally in frontal and right parietal electrodes, which were identified as central hub regions during hypnosis. This modified connectivity and increased network integration-segregation properties suggest a modification of the internal and external awareness brain networks that may reflect efficient cognitive-processing and lower incidences of mind-wandering during hypnosis.
