    • 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.

    • 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.

BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
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
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 - Sleep-dependent emotion regulation
Publication year: 2013
Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Recent neuroimaging studies support that emotion regulation could be strengthened by sleep. First, MRI findings (Yoo et al., 2007; Walker et al., 2011) have demonstrated that REM sleep decreases amygdala reactivity to intrinsically emotional stimuli, previously experienced. Second, one study (Pace-Schott et al., 2009) suggests that sleep reduces affective impact of an emotional learning. The main goal of our work is to identify neural activities during sleep as the cause of reduced emotional reactivity for a new emotional learning.
Two groups, a “sleep” group (13 participants) and a “wake” group (15 participants) have performed the protocol. Both groups watched a set of 15 short neutral and scary movies (4 sec each) ended with the presentation of neutral pictures. Conditioned neutral pictures (previously associated to scary movies) were next presented alone, immediately after the conditioning and after a 12hr delay. Physiological and psychological responses to conditioning pictures were measured. For the sleep group, sleep EEG was recorded during 3 consecutive nights, the last one following the conditioning protocol.
Main results showed that emotional responses were reduced in the sleep group compared to the wake group. In the sleep group, significant differences were observed between the control night and the ‘emotional’ night only for the theta band during the REM sleep. By contrast EEG activity during both light and deep sleep appears to be globally unaffected by experimental conditions. This result suggests that theta rhythm is increased during REM-sleep subsequent to emotional learning, sustaining emotional adaptation process.
