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:
Both experiments assessed the possibility of “true precognition”. Before a participant took part in either study, 5 stocks were randomly selected and stored by computer. The closing prices of these stocks on a prespecified future date provided an entry point into a random number table to determine the future target. Hence participants would have to use precognition, rather than any other form of psi, to perform better than chance.
POSTAL STUDY
Participants tried to gain impressions at home about a picture they would later receive through the post and mailed their impressions to the experimenter. The experimenter then sent them a random set of 4 pictures. Participants rated each picture out of 100 as to its likeness to their impressions and returned their pictures and ratings. Two days later, the experimenter looked up the closing prices of the relevant stocks to determine which picture the participant should receive. The results were at chance (N=80, z=0, p=.5), indicating that participants were unable to use precognition.
WWW STUDY
Participants tried to gain impressions at home about a picture they would later see over the WWW. After gaining their impressions, participants went to a website with 4 pictures in random order. Participants entered by each picture a description of any similarities between that picture and their impressions and also submitted a percentage rating as above. Two days later, the experimenter looked up the closing prices of the relevant stocks to determine which picture the participant should see. The experimenter emailed the participant the WWW address of the target picture. The results were at chance (N=159, z=-0.28, p=.78), indicating that participants were unable to use precognition.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The study reported here is a replication of a previous postal study examining the possibility of true precognition. The previous study (Steinkamp, 2000) revealed chance results for true precognition but significant results for the clairvoyance condition. However, a similar study in the laboratory (Steinkamp, 2001) yielded almost significant results for true precognition. The replication study reported here tried to emulate the conditions in the laboratory but in the setting of a postal study. For instance, this time participants were given a relaxation tape to help them get in the right frame of mind for the experiment and they were not sent their target pool until after they had submitted their mentation reports. Results from the study were at chance. There was no obvious indication that participants' putative lack of motivation might have influenced the outcome. Also, participants who reported having had psychic experiences did not perform any better than those claiming no such experience. It appears that either postal experiments are not suitable for eliciting evidence for true precognition, or, if true precognition is possible, it can occur only with a much shorter precognitive interval than these experiments have allowed.

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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Two experiments were designed to assess the possibility of precognition. One study was conducted by post and the other over the worldwide-web (WWW). Participants could take part in only one trial in one study and had to claim to have had a spontaneous psychic experience.In each study participants tried to guess which of 4 pictures they would see at a future date. Before a participant took part, 5 stocks were randomly selected and stored by computer; the experimenter was blind to the selection. The closing prices of these stocks on a prespecified future date provided an entry point into a random number table to determine
which picture the participant would be shown. Hence participants had to use precognition, rather than any other form of psi (or normal means), to perform better than chance.
POSTAL STUDY:
Participants gained impressions at home about a picture they would later receive through the post and mailed their impressions to the experimenter. The experimenter then sent them a random set of 4 pictures.
Participants rated each picture out of 100 as to its likeness to their impressions and returned their pictures and ratings. Two days later, the experimenter looked up the closing prices of the relevant stocks to determine which picture the participant should receive. The results were at chance (N=80, z=0, p=.5), indicating that participants were unable to use precognition.
WWW STUDY:
Participants gained impressions at home about a picture they would later see over the WWW. Participants then went to a website with 4 pictures in random order. They entered by each picture a description of any similarities between that picture and their impressions and submitted a percentage rating as above. Two days later, the experimenter looked up the closing prices of the relevant stocks to determine which picture the participant should see. The experimenter emailed the participant the WWW address of the target picture. Again, the results were at chance (N=159, z=-0.28, p=.78).
