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: RESULTS:
Recently virtual reality has been used to treat acrophobia trough the simulation of phobic situations. The majority of these studies doesn’t have control groups, are single case studies or had used virtual reality before real exposition. For the acrophobia treatment we replicate in virtual ambience a real local (a building with 8 stories in Braga – Portugal). 10 subjects have been submitted to virtual reality exposition and the other 5 to a real ambience exposition. As the subjects approach the balcony, claim stores or report lower levels of subjective discomfort units the therapist offers verbal orientation and encouragement to the subjects (in the real and the virtual environments). The subjects are continually instructed and encouraged to explore the environment, look at the ground and stay as long as possible in each situation until their anxiety diminishes. In what concerns the virtual reality group instead of the short exposition the subjects after the treatment are able to claim more steps with less anxiety. In a follow-up year they are able to maintain these gains. Both groups didn’t show significant differences in what concerns the behaviour performance (number of steps claimed in a fire ladder) and the attitude towards heights and the acrophobia questionnaires. The treatment time has been very different between both treatments. The average treatment time for the virtual reality group has been 22,3 minutes and for the reality group has been 51,7 minutes. We can’t assume that the treatment with virtual reality is better or worse than the treatment with real environments, but we can say that the virtual reality treatment has real benefits and these are maintained in one-year time.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We present a study with 10 subjects being exposed to three sessions of simulated heights in a virtual reality (VR) system. Among the participants we highlight a 66-year-old man blind in his left eye. The participants show significant progress in anxiety, avoidance, and behavior measurements when confronted with real height circumstances. The results obtained 1 year later at follow-up are statistically significant in the Behavioral Avoidance Test (BAT) and the Attitudes Toward Heights Questionnaire (ATHQ), but not the Acrophobia Questionnaire (AQ).

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.

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.

Absorption, dissociation, locus of control and presence in virtual reality
Publication year: 2007

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The present study aimed to explore the relationship between a number of psychological variables and a reported sense of presence in immersive virtual reality (IVR). It was hypothesised that participants' scores on measures of absorption, dissociation, and external locus of control would be positively and significantly correlated with a measure of their sense of presence in IVR. A total of 64 people took part. Significant correlations were found between presence and dissociation (r=0.403, p<0.01), and presence and locus of control (r=0.268, p<0.05). However, the correlation between presence and absorption was not significant (r=-0.037, p=0.386). The findings reported here suggest a complex interrelationship of psychological variables in relation to presence in IVR that warrants further research.

Publication year: 2006

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Recent research has indicated that the body experience of people who report a prior out-of-body experience (OBErs) is qualitatively different on a number of body-image variables to that of non-experients (non-OBErs). The present study examined OBErs and non-OBErs Behavioural Embodiment during immersion in a Virtual Reality system. It was hypothesised that OBErs would, compared with non-OBErs, exhibit a disembodied behavioural interaction with the Virtual Environment (VE), characterised by the proportion of time spent navigating the environment from an elevated position and the number of collisions with virtual objects. It was also hypothesised that OBErs would score higher on measures of absorption, dissociation and somatoform dissociation. There were no significant differences between OBErs (n = 16) and non-OBErs (n = 28) on Behavioural Embodiment (i.e., the proportion of time spent navigating the environment from an elevated position and the number of collisions with virtual objects), although there was a positive correlation with number of OBEs and proportion of trial time spent navigating the environment from an elevated position. OBErs were found to score significantly higher than the non-OBErs on measures of absorption, dissociation and somatoform dissociation.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Using the General Aggression Model (GAM) framework, developed by Anderson and colleagues, the current experiment was conducted to analyze the short-term effects of violent electronic games, played with or without a virtual reality device, on the instigation of aggressive behaviour under provocation.
Physiological arousal (heart rate), priming of aggressive thoughts, and state hostility, were measured to test their possible mediation on the relationship between playing the violent game and aggression, as is predicted by the GAM. The participants - 147 undergraduate students - were randomly assigned to four treatment conditions: two groups played a violent computer game (Unreal Tournament), and the other two a non-violent game (Motocross Madness).
Among those who played the violent game, half used a virtual reality device and the remaining participants played on the computer screen. The game effects were assessed by an emotional Stroop task (using affective words) to analyze the priming of aggressive thoughts, a self-report state hostility scale to rate hostility, a BIOPAC System MP100 to measure heart rate, and a Competitive Reaction Time Task (according to Taylor Aggression Paradigm) to evaluate aggressive behaviour. The main results indicated that the effect of violent computer game on aggression may be explained by the mediation of the perceived state hostility.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The virtual reality systems (VR) have been more and more used in the field of psychology. Since the hardware is getting cheaper, and the VR systems can create a greater variety of stimuli and situations, practitioners and investigators have been increasingly exploring the potentialities of this technology. With the present work we try to contribute to the study and implementation of the therapeutic potentialities of this system. We have chosen acrophobia as the treatment’s target, and a VR system as the mediator of the participant’s exposure. The study’s results show that, despite the low exposure time, the participants of the VR group were able to climb more steps with less anxiety after the treatment. It is also noteworthy that these results were maintained on a one-year follow-up. There were also positive and statistically significant results for the participants in the real environment group, which clearly shows the already known therapeutic value of the exposure therapies. The two groups didn’t show significant differences when comparing the treatment’s efficacy. We also observed that a lot of the symptoms referred in the SSQ questionnaire were not only displays of nausea, but also of fear. We noticed that the VR treatment has real and long-term advantages, not only for its efficacy, but also for the fact that it facilitates the confidentiality of the therapeutic exposure. This kind of intervention also makes it easier for the therapist and the client to start and finish the exposure whenever they want, which gives more control to the client. The VR facilitates the balance between the ecological and the experimental observation, making it easier to evaluate the progress of the participants. The virtual exposure is a promising way for intervention with people with specific phobias, and in this work we noticed that its application to individuals with fear of heights is effective.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
We developed an immersive virtual reality (IVR) application as an experimental environment and medium for the study of telepathy. Our own Telepathy Immersive Virtual Environment (TIVE) uses three-dimensional computer graphics technology to generate artificial environments that afford real-time interaction and exploration in conjunction with head mounted displays (HMDs), sound, instrumented data gloves which allow participants to interact with virtual objects. We conducted two telepathy studies using TIVE.
In Study 1 100 pairs who each completed a trial as a sender and receiver, 200 trials in total. In Study 230 pairs which took part in four further trials without changing roles, a total of 120 trials.
Neither of the above studies showed evidence in support for the psi hypothesis, either in terms of directional hitting or in a post hoc magnitude analysis, where the outcomes were no different from what would be expected by chance.
Future analyses will explore correlates of psi performance within the same studies. This approach takes the view that the psi process may function differentially according to state of consciousness and personality factors. The null effect overall reported here
may therefore reflect a systematic balance of psi hitting and psi missing.

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:
The main objectives of this work were to test if it was possible to conciliate Virtual Reality techniques with the recording of neurophysiological data, and to develop and validate new methodological paradigms to study the psychobiology of emotion.
The first study consisted in selecting 3D stimuli similar to those used in the traditional methodological approach to study emotion. We selected 131 stimuli, which were normalized and validated using the Self-Assessment Manikin, in a sample of 214 healthy subjects. The results obtained were consistent with previous studies conducted with 2D stimuli, allowing the development of a Database of Affective 3D Pictures.
In the second study, we tested if the induction of emotions with 3D stimulation techniques caused more intense emotional responses than with 2D techniques. To that end we recorded behavioral and peripheral physiological measures associated with the visualization of the three Scenarios in two modalities (2D vs.3D).
Results suggested that 3D visualization causes more intense emotional responses.
The third study aimed at testing the interference of emotional information in the neurocognitive processing, through Event-related Potential analysis in a dual-task auditory oddball paradigm. Our results showed that emotional induction through 3D stimulation recruits more attentional resources than through 2D stimulation, causing a greater interference in the cognitive processing.
Finally, in the fourth study, we presented indexes of brain activation obtained through Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) when subjects were exposed to the Scenarios in two modalities (2D vs. 3D). Results indicate that 3D visualization is associated to higher activation of the amygdala complex.

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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectivos - O presente estudo apresenta os dados normativos de um conjunto de estímulos gerados por computador, com o propósito de indução de emoções em ambientes de Realidade Virtual através de visualização estereoscópica activa.
Métodos - Seleccionamos um conjunto de objectos 3D, semelhantes aos que são utilizados na metodologia tradicional para o estudo experimental da emoção. Encontrámos 131 objectos que submetemos a normalização e validação numa amostra de 214 participantes saudáveis. Esse trabalho foi efectuado através do Self-Assessment Manikin (SAM).
Resultados - Os resultados revelam uma distribuição dos estímulos no espaço afectivo bidimensional (Valência * Intensidade), em forma de boomerang, significativamente diferente da distribuição resultante da validação original do International Affective Pictures System (IAPS) [1]. No entanto, a curva de distribuição resultante da nossa validação é ainda melhor. Para além disso verificámos que os Cenários de Indução Afectiva - 3D são discriminativos em termos de valência afectiva.
Conclusão - Estão, portanto, demonstradas as condições básicas para se introduzir a Realidade Virtual na investigação comportamental, possibilitando ultrapassar a passividade do participante perante a simples visualização de imagens de conteúdo afectivo 2D e aumentar a sensação de imersão e presença decorrentes da estimulação nos ambientes 3D.
