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, Cohen’s 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, Cohen’s 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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
This project aims at comparing physiological responses (heart rate variability) with conscious responses(button presses) to develop a more sensitive measure of psi in a cognitive DMILS experiment in a cross-cultural setting.
METHODS:
In the cognitive DMILS protocol, a person (Helpee) focuses on a lit candle, and whenever his focus wanders, he presses a button. Meanwhile, a person in another room (Helper) intends to help the person focus during
half of the randomly assigned two minute epochs; the other half serve as control. There are 8 counter-balanced epochs per session. Heart rate variability from the Helpee is also collected for each of the 16 epochs. HRV is compared in the help vs. the control epochs. Additionally, extensive interviews were conducted.
RESULTS:
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, onetail, Cohen’s 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, onetail, Cohen’s d = .09, power = .16 .
CONCLUSIONS:
HRV did not yield a more sensitive measure of psi influence. However, the interviews yielded significant phenomenal data, especially on what cultural factors caused significantly fewer button presses by the Helpee in Bali as opposed to studies in the US and in Edinburgh. 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. We believe, however, that other cultural factors may be at work, particularly the importance of ritual prayer in Bali.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
In recent years, several clinical trials have assessed effects of distant healing. The basic question raised by these studies is whether a positive distant intention can be related to some outcome in a target person. There is a specific simple experimental setup that tests such a basic assumption. The task is to focus attention and to indicate unwanted mind wandering by a button press while at the same time a second remote person is either supporting this performance or not according to a randomized schedule. A meta-analysis was conducted to assess the overall effect of this experimental approach.
METHODS:
A systematic literature search yielded 11 eligible studies, with 576 single sessions and almost identical design, that were conducted on three different continents. Study parameters were extracted and combined with a random-effects model.
RESULTS:
The model yielded an overall effect size of d=0.11 (p=0.03). Furthermore, there was a significant difference of the frequency of button presses between studies conducted in Indonesia and the Western hemisphere (p<0.001). Two (2) similar experimental setups applying electrodermal activity as dependent variable meta-analyzed earlier showed almost identical effect sizes. This can be considered as mutual validation of the three data sets.
CONCLUSIONS:
The hypothesis of the positive effect of benevolent intentions is supported by the data presented. It is concluded that especially the intentional aspect common to all three different tasks may be responsible for these unorthodox findings. These finding may have implications for distant healing research and health care as well as for meditation performance.

BIAL Foundation Archive
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.
