Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Recent analyses of the psi-ganzfeld as well as our earlier work, indicated that the ganzfeld technique is still experimenter dependent and can produce both significant psi-missing as well as psi-hitting. Our efforts are directed at towards an understanding of what the determinants of success are. The use of the digital real time ganzfeld has enabled us to identify particularly impressive sequences of the ganzfeld imagery which correspond to and are synchronised with the content of the target film and as such which may lie behind the psi-hitting and missing. Psi missing appears to occur during the point of decision rather then in the mentation report. In collaboration with colleagues at Stockholm University, a study has also been made of the effects of subjective validation in evaluating qualitative hits. The results suggest caution is needed in the use of qualitative hits without the accompanying clear evidence of psi-hitting. The real time technique has been used to examine learning effects, psi-conducive states, the arousing value of the target film, and the sender-receiver relationship. A successful pilot study using the real time digital ganzfeld has been conducted with biological closely related pairs (monozygotic twins) of participants. As well as evaluating the claims concerning “twin telepathy” this is enabling us extend our qualitative data bank which can be linked with potentially high scoring and possible true psi-markers. Some preliminary work has also been done on developing a remote viewing technique which will be analogous to the real time ganzfeld and on possible links between successful target material and precognitive habituation.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The aim of real-time recordings is to use the qualitative correspondences between ganzfeld experiences and the content of film clips in order to make better quantitative judgements. The study used this system of book-marking correspondences in order to see if ESP performance in the ganzfeld could be improved amongst a group of 8 volunteers who were scheduled to each complete six double ganzfeld sessions. Another hypothesis concerned the possibility that impressions which were thought by the participant to have an "external origin", would be more target related. Because of a computer crash the study had to be terminated with 74 ganzfeld trials. Although no improvement in performance could be demonstrated, and no differences were found with respect to the source to which imagery was attributed or to state of consciousness variables, participants scored at the expected rate of 32-33% for the Ganzfeld (effect size d = 0.17, z = 1.48, p = .09). The 38 trials that had one session per day gave a direct hit frequency of 45% while those 36 trails with two sessions per day obtained a 19% hit frequency (p < .05) which replicated earlier findings related to the hypothesised negative effect of more than one session per day on scoring.

Remarkable correspondences between Ganzfeld mentation aand target content – a psychical or psychological effect?
Publication year: 2006
URL:
http://connection.ebscohost.com/c/articles/26531642/remarkable-correspondences-between-ganzfeld-mentation-target-content-psychical-psychological-effect
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Remarkable correspondences between ganzfeld mentation and target content have been reported since the start of ganzfeld experiments in parapsychology. These correspondences may be due either to some form of' anomalous information transfer (e.g., telepathy) or to a cognitive illusion on the part of the perceiver. This paper presents 4 studies conducted in order to investigate which of these two possibilities is the more probable. In Study 1, an external judge in a ganzfeld experiment selected 20 short segments that showed most remarkable correspondences between ganzfeld mentation and film clip content while being blind to whether the chosen film clip had been used as a target or as a decoy. Only 6 of the segments showed correspondences between the mentation and the target, which is close to chance expectation level. In Study 2, 11 students rated the 6 correspondences that were ?hits? as being equally as impressive as the 14 that were ?misses.? In Studies 3 and 4, the possibility that the 14 correspondences that were ?misses? could have been due to a form of ?displacement clairvoyance? was shown to be very unlikely. It was concluded that it is possible to obtain what at least some people consider to be very remarkable correspondences between mentation and film content by chance alone.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The article has the purpose of making readily available for scrutiny primary sources relating to studies that give evidence of psi-phenomena. Although the list is not offered as providing compelling evidence or “proof” of psi, it is meant to provide a strong case for a recruitment of resources. The effects are not marginal or non-replicable ones although it is clear that in many cases they appear to be dependent on certain experimenters and participants.

The Effects of a two week reflection-Intention training program on lucid dream Recall
Publication year: 2006
URL:
http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/drm/16/1/22/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous research in the field of lucid dreams has produced several techniques which are claimed to be a means of inducing lucid dreams, but there have been only a small number of reported studies which have evaluated their effectiveness. The present study investigated the effects of one of the most promising of these, the reflection-intention technique, which is specifically designed to increase the frequency of dream and lucid dream recall. The sample here consisted of 20 participants whose frequencies of normal dream recall and lucid dream recall were recorded before, during and after a two week training program by using a dream questionnaire and a dream journal: A one-way repeated measures analysis of variance showed a significant increase in both dream recall frequency (F2,38 = 22.09, p<.05) and lucid dream recall frequency (F2,38 = 5.96, p<.05). Because there are some reservations concerning the small sample size and a possible subject bias, the findings here concerning the efficiency of the lucid dream induction program are regarded as only suggestive.

The first digital autoganzfeld study using a real-time judging procedure
Publication year: 2004
URL:
http://ejp.wyrdwise.com/EJP%20v19.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A new technique for digital autoganzfeld is used, in which the receiver’s mentation report is captured and automatically stored to a digital audio file to make possible a playback of the film clips (picture and film sound) and the mentation (sound) exactly synchronously. This also makes it possible to superimpose the mentation report on the three control (decoy) film clips. This feature might facilitate the evaluation of a trial and render better insights into the study of psi. Another advantage with the new digital system is that it is possible to allow two target film clips to be used rather than one, which is a more time and cost efficient way of collecting data. In order to evaluate how well the newly developed digital autoganzfeld system works, it was used in 128 trials in which 64 pairs of receivers and senders took part. It was hypothesised that the digital ganzfeld result would statistically significantly exceed the mean chance expectation (25%) as measured by direct hits, the sessions being evaluated by an external judge. The result was a direct hit rate of 23% (p=.386, binomial one-tailed test), which was close to chance expectation. In
half the trials, the receivers also evaluated their sessions, which resulted in a direct hit rate of 14% (p=.050, binomial two-tailed test). Exploratory analyses yielded results that might explain the failure to give a significant psi-hitting result.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Although the question 'Does psi exist?' has become a recurrent and intransigent problem for psychological science, seen from a historical and social context, there appear to be reasons as to why no determined effort has been made to resolve the question. The sporadic exchanges from parapsychologists and critics appear only to reinforce the status quo: At most, it is agreed that some form of 'anomaly' has been established but there is no consensus about its nature. Yet such a defeatist stance shies away from the long tradition of research into spontaneous phenomena, as well as experimental research with dreams and hypnosis, all of which suggests that, if psi is real, it is not just an anomaly but has true information content and dynamic effects. This work is briefly reviewed and then, since much of the current controversy has centred on the ganzfeld technique, this is used as an example of the issues involved. The ganzfeld induces sleep-onset imagery during which randomly selected film clips are viewed by a sender as a source of psi-mediated information to be incorporated into the imagery. Our current development of the ganzfeld technique, known as the digital autoganzfeld, takes the work beyond 'anomaly status' since it enables real-time recordings to be made of apparently high-quality psi as it enters consciousness. Initial findings from this illustrate the complexity of the phenomena and the need for more adventurous designs in order to stimulate theory development. There is no doubt that technology now exists which would enable us to resolve the issues raised. Whether the area turns out to be a mixture of rampant fraud, artefact and subjective validation or to present genuine phenomena, a resolution of the issue may be seen as having unwanted implications for psychology -- which may be one of the factors explaining why the controversy is left to continue as it is, unresolved. New questions are needed which take into account the natural context in which psi appears to occur, along with the support needed to reach clear answers.

Title:
Remarkable correspondances between Ganzfeld mentation and target content - psi or a cognitive illusion?
Publication year: 2004

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Remarkable correspondences between Ganzfeld mentation and target content have been reported since the early start of Ganzfeld experiments in parapsychology. These correspondences may be due to some anomalous information transfer (e.g., telepathy) or they may be due to a cognitive illusion on the part of the person who perceives them as remarkable. The present paper presents two studies conducted in order to investigate which of these two possibilities is the more probable. Both studies were based on data collected during the first formal experiment run with a new technique called Digital Ganzfeld (Goulding, Westerlund, Parker & Wackermann, 2001). In this experiment the receiver’s mentation was stored as a digital audio file that was synchronized with the target videoclip (as well as with the three decoy clips, as all clips were of exactly the same length). An external judge (JW) then played the mentation file together with the different clips in the set that was used and ranked the different clips according to similarities with the mentation. The main result was close to chance with a direct hit rate of 23% (Goulding, Westerlund, Parker & Wackermann, 2004). However, at the same time as the judge did this judging, he also tried to discern any correspondences between the mentation and any of the four clips (before knowing which one was the target) that appeared to him to be very remarkable (presented as Study 1 in this paper). A total of 20 remarkable correspondences were collected. Of these, only 6 (30%) were correspondences between the mentation and the target whereas the remaining 14 (70%) were correspondences between the mentation and decoys. This result is not significantly different from chance expectation. It was argued that this result gives some support to the cognitive illusion hypothesis, but that the study was lacking in statistical power. In order to gain stronger statistical power, a group of 11 students rated each of the 20 correspondences on scales ranging from 0-100 (presented as Study 2 in the present paper). The students did not rate the correspondences that were hits (i.e., correspondences with the target) as significantly more impressive than the correspondences that were misses (i.e., correspondences with one of the decoys). This result speaks against the psi-hypothesis, but the results should be interpreted with some caution since the students could not be said to have been 100% blind. Taken together, the results of the two studies presented here help us be more conservative about concluding that remarkable correspondences between receiver mentation and target content are due to psi when they may be due to cognitive illusions (or subjective validation).

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:
The aim of this study was to maximise psi performance in the Real-Time Digital Ganzfeld (RTDG) by using as participants a group of identical twins who reported psi-related experiences. Fourteen pairs of identical twins were selected using a questionnaire interview based on the Sheep-Goat Scale. The twins in the roles of receiver and sender took part in a two-session RTDG procedure. The results of this initial study gave a 36% hit rate, with a small-to-medium effect size, which was the rate generally expected for ganzfeld studies with selected participants. The dramatic success rate that might be expected to occur amongst identical twins was not found in this sample. Possible reasons for this are discussed.
