Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
From the beginning of parapsychology, it has been proposed that objects contain “psi fields,” or localized impersonal memory traces of physical and mental events, such as in the form of ESP known as psychometry or object-reading. Eleven questionnaires, such as Anomalous/Paranormal Experiences Inventory, Neo Personality Inventory –Revised, Constructive Thinking Inventory, Eysenck Personality Questionnaire, Creative Experiences Questionnaire, Seeking-Sensation Scale, Dissociation Experiences Scale, and Tellegen Absorption Scale were administered. Also, EBEA-Q was designed by us. It contains items such as thoughts or feelings at a distance, ESP “feelings” around sick people, around past place events, around token objects, around unknown people, and around token photos. Two hundred fifty nine participants were interviewed individually. Seventy four percent of them (N= 193), both females (76%) and males (24%). Participants ranged 18 to 76 years old. A number of psi-reading tests were designed by us: (1) First ESP test was designed to be used with six of photos paired (three males and three females); (2) second ESP test used token objects into two conditions “at-a-distance” and “face-to-face” with two objects of two human-targets (male and female) in contact with them a couple of minutes; (3) third ESP test was designed used objects token of four human-targets (two male and two female) medically diagnosed (i.e. Hiatal hernia; Diabetes mellitus; Arthrosis of the knee, and Varicose veins) in comparsion with four “control” objects; (4) fourth ESP test was designed with two texts containing a brief self-report written by four human-targets (two males and two females), who attended psychological interviews; (5) fifth ESP test was designed to be used with six recipients, three of them containing sand and water from “holy” places and “control” recipients. For each test, the experimenters delivered each participant (N= 193) the pairs (target and control), counterbalanced, and asked them to indicate their “impressions”.indicate their “impressions”.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psychometry describes a type of anomalous cognition which permits a psychic to experience such impressions using a physical object. A number of psychics have gained a reputation as psychic detectives using such things as photographs, a town map, or a piece of clothing. In fact, many people seem to have a high opinion of the abilities of psychics, but a person's face is an important source of information for identifying others, and conveys significant social information, probably due to its important role in the psychological processes involved in social interaction. The aim of the present study was to compare a group of ordinary people (non-psychics) with selfclaimed psychics in order to determine if participants were capable of distinguishing between living and dead people from photographs of same. The sample consisted of 169 participants divided into two groups: "psychics" (N = 74) and "non-psychics" (N = 95). No significant differences were found. Those participants who claimed to have psychometric ability (that is, were able to pick up impressions from an object by being in physical contact with it) neither obtained psi hitting, nor demonstrated greater variability in their psi hits. One possible interpretation would be that some of the participants in this group had difficulties with correctly interpreting the psi signal.

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.

Publication year: 2009

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psychic reading is a method used to foretell the future of an individual. However, cold reading is a non-paranormal technique used by many self-claimed psychics and mediums to determine details about another person in order to convince them that the reader knows much more about a subject than he or she actually does. We wanted to explore some strategies for using and appraising the so-called "tokenobject" effect common in psychic reading. We planned to follow the design of our earlier research using a psychometry procedure with a sample of ordinary people (non-psychics) and a sample of self-claimed psychics. One of the aims of the study was to determine if the 'psychics' participants could give impressions while touching the objects of two sitters. The experiment was introduced to the participants by telling them that two different conditions, "face-to-face" and "remote" psychometry, were being undertaken using a physical object as psistimuli. The sample consisted of 83 participants. We concluded that those participants who claimed to have psychometry psi ability ("Psychic" group) showed greater psi hitting than "Non-Psychics" in both conditions ("remote" and "face-to-face"). Because face-to-face readings allow for sensory cues, no firm conclusion of "genuine" psi can be justified from such an experiment. Therefore we should treat this significant finding with caution.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We conducted two trials of a free-response ESP test. The aim was to determine if two groups of the hypnotically susceptible –the low and high scorers– scored differently in terms of psi hitting. The sample consisted of 101 subjects (69 females and 32 males) psi-believing participants. We used the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility which assesses the hypnotisability level when subjects are tested in groups. Participants were categorised as the "High HS" group (N = 20) and "Low HS" group (N = 81). We also used the following criteria to split the sample into three hitting groups: (1) No hits within two trials. one hit within two trials, and (3) Two hits within two trials. The difference among three groups (no hit, one hit, and two hits) was significant (p = .017, 1-tailed). The High HS group scored higher than the Low HS group, which scored at chance (p = .03, 1-tailed).

Individual, perceptual and psychological differences between psi-tested self-claimed psychics and non-psychics
Publication year: 2016
URL:
http://search.informit.com.au/documentSummary;res=IELHSS;dn=099628941543192
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The specific aim of the present study was to find psychological differences between psychic and non-psychics. Specifically, we hypothesized that the self-claimed psychics score higher than non-psychics on the following four dimensions: (1) Individual Differences (i.e., neuroticism, extroversion, psychoticism, cognitive and emotional empathy, and defense style); (2) Psychopathology (i.e., healthy and negative schizotypy, dissociation, hallucinations and abnormal perceptions, magical ideation and perceptual aberration); (3) Boundaries (i.e., transliminality and boundary 'thinness'); and (4) Perception (i.e., perceptual cognition and imagery, and sensationseeking). The database used in this paper was originally collected as part of a project that investigated the so-called token-object effect (Parra & Argibay, 2013a, 2013b). Two categorization procedures were performed in order to split the sample into (1) Psychic/high-psi-scorers (n = 48) and (2) Non-psychic/low-psi-scorers (n = 44). Psychic/high-psiscorers scored higher than non-psychic/low-psi-scorers on Extroversion, and they scored lower on Neuroticism and Psychoticism, which confirm previous findings. Other results showed that psychic/high-psi-scorers tended to have 'thinner' boundaries, and they reported more unusual/psychic experiences, than non-psychic/low-psiscorers. The two groups, however, did not differ on schizotypy or dissociation. Generally speaking, the typical psychic in our study (similar to the one described by Eysenck) is 'sanguine', tends to be lively, sociable, carefree, talkative, pleasure-seeking, optimistic, and leadership-oriented.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The concept of defense mechanisms has its origins in psychoanalytic theory, which focuses more on the defenses´ process than on the objective of defenses. The present study examined the differences between individuals who have abnormal/paranormal experiences – and three defensive styles (mature, neurotic, and immature factor), and those who have not had such experiences. College students (60 % women and 40 % men, mean age = 33.87 years old) received the Defense Styles Questionnaire (DSQ-40) and ten questions that explore several abnormal and paranormal experiences. People reported a high frequency of experiences, such as deja-vu, dreams of extra sensory perception (ESP), telepathy and memories of past lives. The results also showed a higher level of paranormal experiences and mature defenses, as well as, neurotic defenses, compared to individuals without the experience. Although, the nature of the study is exploratory, the author suggests that some of these experiences attributed to paranormal causes, appear to serve asa mechanism of protection to potential traumatic events, improve subjective well-being of the individual or - at least - prevent or reduce the disruptive consequences of negative life events. Therefore, paranormal experiences could correspond to nonpathological traits that produce changes in psychological ‘homeostasis’.

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.

Anomalous remote diagnosis: Mental and motor psi impressions under iconic representation of the person-target
Publication year: 2013
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
A common procedure to encourage self-claimed psychics is to use iconic representations (photographs) as inductors. The aim of this study was to compare 2 conditions – “mental” and “motor” – using images of the faces of persons as targets. Specifically, we wanted to determine if the scores were different based on 2 kinds of stimulus (diseased and healthy). Participants were clustered as psychics and nonpsychics. The sample consisted of 224 participants, recruited through an e-mail list, and their ages ranged from 18 to 75 (M = 44.19 years old). Eight photographs included 4 of subjects “sick” with a medically diagnosed disease and 4 of healthy persons (the “controls”). All of the images of sick persons were taken from 6 months to 2 years before the diseases were discovered. The results of the 2 procedures were significantly above chance: the mean “mental” score = 2.32 (p < .001, 1-tailed), and the mean “motor” score = 2.15 (p = .016, 1-tailed). A second analysis was carried out to determine if the mental and motor procedures led to different scores; indeed, mental scored significantly higher than motor (the mean “mental” score = 2.32 vs. the mean “motor” score = 2.15 (p < .001).

Dissociation, absorption, fantasy proneness and sensation-seeking in psychic claimants
Publication year: 2012
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Building on evidence to suggest that strong believers in and experients of paranormal phenomena tend to be fantasy-prone individuals, we hypothesized that individuals who claimed paranormal /anomalous abilities would also score higher
on dissociation, absorption and sensation-seeking than individuals who did not claim paranormal /anomalous experiences. One hundred and thirty-two participants were recruited by media advertisements and a mailing list. The participants
completed questionnaires and interviews during two-hour workshops, organized free of charge at the Institute of Paranormal Psychology (IPP) in Buenos Aires. When comparing persons who claimed to be psychics and those who did not, the ‘psychic’ group (N = 40) had significantly higher scores on Dissociation, Absorption and Fantasy Proneness than did the ‘non-psychic’ group (N = 40). The hypotheses were supported in that the psychic group did have significantly higher scores on the Dissociation (t [78] = 21.12, p = 0.01, d = 0.65), Absorption (t [78] = 17.81, p < 0.001, d = 1.09) and Fantasy Proneness (t [78] = 12.77, p = 0.01, d = 0.72) scales than did the non-psychics. However, scores on the Sensation-Seeking scale were not significantly different; indeed, the non-psychic group scored slightly higher, contrary to prediction. We also found some gender differences, with male psychics having significantly higher mean scores than female psychics on measures of Dissociation and Fantasy Proneness, and suggestively higher scores on Absorption and Sensation-Seeking. We suggest that these variables are taken into account when recruiting and screening participants for future studies of ESP.
