    • The Boolean operator AND between the terms is assumed by default. If you enter the words European Union in the search box, the system returns all records in which both words occur, regardless of their order.
    • When entering a set of words in quotes, e.g "european union", all records containing the literal term "European Union" will be retrieved.
  • Search by access fields (e.g. author, title, etc.):
    • To direct your search, choose the field in which you want to search the word or expression.
    • Search in the field assumes by default the expression in quotes, e.g. European union will retrieve all records containing the literal term "European Union"
  • To perform more complex searches, additional words or expressions may be added.
  • If you want to refine the search results, you can always access the link "search" in the upper left corner of the page of search results.
  • The search engine is not case sensitive. For example, the word congress has the same meaning that Congress or CONGRESS.

Title:
BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratůrios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIALís 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 Manís 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 Ä5,000 and Ä50, 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 aimed at enquiring whether physiological responses (heart rate variability) is a more reliable indicator of psi influence than conscious responses (button presses) in a cross-cultural setting. It continued and extended the research program that we developed in Bali for the previous four years. The problems with the traditional cognitive DMILS methodology are two fold: the button press may not be reliable as an indicator of loss of focus, and the number of button presses in Bali have been significantly fewer than in experiments in the US and Scotland. Through comparing heart rate variability (HRV) as an alternate measure of lack of attention, and through extensive interviews on the phenomenology of the button presses, we aimed to improve and make more consistent the cognitive DMILS protocol.
HRV did not yield a more sensitive measure of psi influence. Although on average HRV tended to be slightly lower in the Help condition in Study 1, this difference was not statistically significant, Control (M = 5.84, SD = 1.64), Help (M = 5.79, SD = 1.64), t(59) = 0.46, p = .32, one-tail, Cohenís d = .06, power = .07. In the Study 2, there was no statistically significant difference in the HRV between the two conditions, Control (M = 8.74, SD = 4.11), Help (M = 8.96, SD = 4.56), t(42) = 0.65, p = .26, one-tail, Cohenís d = .09, power = .16 .
The interviews yielded significant phenomenal data, from which we concluded that the Balinese see falling out of focus as a state; that is, the time from the instant of losing focus until they regain it is viewed as one state and is responded to as one event. Thus, they tend to press the button only once during this time. Although we do not have comparable data on this, it seems that EuroAmericans might view the time from losing focus to regaining it as potentially a series of events, where they might try to regain focus but not achieve it, and thus they may press the button multiple times during this period, thus increasing the button presses in EuroAmerican cultures. We believe, however, that other cultural factors may be at work, particularly the importance of ritual prayer in Bali.
