Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The major study concerned the subliminal priming of participants with film clips prior to their ganzfeld sessions.
In total, 64 trails (32 traditional psi ganzfeld trials and 32 comparison trials with primed targets) were conducted with receiver-sender pairs taking part in a digital real time ganzfeld. Prior to the session, they viewed thematic material from all four potential film clips presented at 40 milliseconds exposures.
Although there was a statistically effect showing that the imagery from the clips later reemerged as a major part of the ganzfeld imagery, this concerned the non-target clips more than as the target material. First place rankings on the target clips gave only 13.7% hits (MCE 25%) and it may well be that the methodology overloaded the participants with dynamic material. Similar, apparently reversed effects, have been found in other research in subliminal perception. An analysis of the emotional content of the film clips found a highly significant effect relating to sense of awe or “numinosity” but again in the reversed direction.
A further study gave support for the influence of emotional sensitivity in mediating subliminal effect in the form of precognitive habitation effects.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
From an evolutionary perspective, it may be advantageous not only to unconsciously react to emotionally threatening stimuli but also to habituate to these if they should prove harmless. A major purpose of the study was to test for the occurrence of this precognitive affective habituation at a subliminal level using emotionally loaded pictures. The design chosen here enabled us to evaluate whether or not participants habituated to emotionally loaded pictures and to see if they reacted selectively to just those target pictures that would later be repeatedly exposed, thus becoming potentially less threatening. It was further hypothesized that both the subliminal and the precognitive effects would relate to individual measures of emotional reactivity and transliminality. Fifty participants took part in the two successive computer steered procedures in order to respectively evaluate these aspects. A significant habituation effect was found for the negatively loaded targets. The overall findings failed to show a significant discrimination between those pictures than would be re-presented and those that were not. However, by selecting out the 34 individuals who showed affective habituation, a post hoc significant effect of precognitive habitation was found.

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.

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 study was aimed seeing if it possible to the manipulate the content of imagery that is obtained during
an altered state of consciousness (the ganzfeld). Specifically, we investigated the degree to which the prior exposure to subliminally presented film clips might re-emerge as later imagery in the ganzfeld.
Pairs of volunteers were selected on the basis of having reported prior experiences of and beliefs in psychic
phenomena. The participants were briefly exposed to a rapid presentation of the sets of film clips which would be later used as psi-targets in one half of the experiment. This method developed here, which we call “speed viewing”, is at threshold for subliminal perception (60 ms). The experiment was pre-set to 60 trials which were carried out. Each session consisted of two trials, that is two target selections of film clips to used in a psi-ganzfeld experiment. For one of these two trails, a target film clip was randomly selected by the computer program from the target set of films that had been primed while for the other trial a target film clip was randomly selected from the non-primed sets of targets. The order of these two trials, primed and non-primed (each with P = .25), was for this purpose also randomised.
Testing followed the usual ganzfeld procedure of matching the ganzfeld imagery to the target and decoy films. The procedure however allowed us to evaluate the degree to which the primed subliminal film material re-emerged as imagery in the altered state and to note additional elements that might appear beyond those reported in the normal state of consciousness. However contrary to the hypothesis, scoring was below chance expectancy for the primed targets and close to the chance expectancy for the non primed targets. Further analyses are being carried out on emotional impact of the various films used in the film library.
