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.

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:
Voice-hearing occurs in clinical and non-clinical samples, and the role of spiritual and cultural frameworks of understanding for percipients has received increased attention. This review aimed to identify and synthesise the existing qualitative literature relating to positive aspects of voice-hearing experiences, and to make recommendations based on these findings for clinical practice and future research. Qualitative papers that included positive aspects of voice-hearing were identified by undertaking a systematic search of six electronic databases, resulting in 22 papers. The quality of each paper was assessed and the meta-ethnographic approach was used to extract and synthesise the data. Six themes were identified relating to voices providing safety and protection, guidance, creating psychological and emotional well-being, providing companionship, facilitating personal growth and development, and connecting hearers to religious or spiritual belief systems. The findings suggest positive aspects of voice-hearing that may have clinical and research implications.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This thesis focuses on the experience of voice hearing and effects on mental health and wellbeing. It is composed of two separate papers: a systematic literature review and an empirical paper.
Section one, the paper titled “Understanding indicators of clinical need and methods of reducing distress for children who hear voices: A Systematic Literature Review” aimed to establish the current research base which focuses specifically on the experience of voice hearing in children and the factors related to their current emotional health. The paper synthesised 13 quantitative studies. The majority of studies looked at different factors and two studies detailed interventions. The findings of the review suggest traumatic life events and cognitive appraisals may be important in the experience of distressing voice hearing.
However no firm conclusions could be drawn due to small sample sizes and the variable quality of the included articles. There was some indication of CBT strategies being useful in mitigating distress however more evidence is needed. More research taking a consistent approach needs to be conducted in this area to establish the factors that may make some children who hear voices more vulnerable to experiencing distress and how they can be supported to manage their experiences.
Section two, the empirical paper titled, “‘I have finally realised I’m not crazy’: A narrative analysis of mental health and mediumship’”, aimed to explore how unusual experiences develop over time and how these experiences come to be seen as mediumistic. A data set of 14 interviews with mediums originating from a qualitative, pluralistic project was re-analysed using narrative analysis to consider how mediums view their experiences in relation to their own mental health. Findings show that mediums’ early experiences were often traumatic and builds on previous research by demonstrating that attempts to fit in with social norms particularly around ‘healthy’ and ‘sane’ increases this trauma and distress. Participants sought out support from key figures, and validating responses were important for them to accept and establish their mediumistic identity.
