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.

Sex and individual differences in induced and evoked EEG measures of action observation
Publication year: 2010

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S002839321000093X
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We used two established methods for analysing the EEG response of the neurotypical adult human brain to examine the execution and observation of simple motor actions. In one, execution or observation of a button-press in response to a tone caused a decrease in the power at 8-13 Hz ("mu") frequencies. In the other, the response preparation (or the inferred response preparation when these actions are observed in another person) was measured by the averaged response time-locked potentials measured over motor cortex--the "readiness potential". Results indicated that the mirrored readiness potentials were bilaterally generated. We found sex differences for both measures. However, whereas females showed a greater degree of response for the mu power measure during the observation of movement only, males showed larger readiness potentials during both movement performance and observation. Both measures have been claimed to be neural correlates of mirror systems in the brain where processes responsible for actions are linked to the perception of such actions. Such mirror systems have also been implicated in higher order social cognition such as empathy. However, we found no correlations between either of our EEG measures and self-report scales of social cognition. The results imply sex differences in the measured systems and for mirroring that are not directly related to social cognition. We suggest that the results may indicate two dissociable motor mirroring systems that can be measured by induced and evoked EEG.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
We aim to examine the individual and sex differences in EEG correlates of action observation and error monitoring and to investigate whether our measures are congruent to what has been suggested by some to be a human “mirror neuron system”. Our measures are mu desynchronisation and the readiness potentials (RPs) during action execution and observation, and the error-related negativity (ERN) triggered by the execution and observation of errors.
METHOD:
Expt 1: We tested 48 participants using an experimental paradigm where the participant both performed simple button press actions and observed the experimenter make such actions. Participants also completed established social cognition scales (EQ, SQ, IRI).
Expt 2: We tested 43 participants performing a demanding Go/No-Go task and observing the experimenter performing the task. Participants also completed empathy-related scales as above.
RESULTS:
In Expt 1, we found sex differences for both mu desynchronisation and RPs. However, the sex differences were in opposing directions with a female superiority for the induced mu measure and a male superiority for the evoked RP measure. Furthermore, neither measure correlated with social cognition scales and the measures did not correlate with each other.
Preliminary analysis of Expt 2 indicates that the magnitude and time course of the ERN to self-performed errors in equivalent for males and females. The ERN for observed errors appears to emerge later than that to performed errors and to be enhanced in females compared with males.
CONCLUSIONS:
Our report for Expt 1 has been accepted for publication and concludes that EEG measures of simple motoric mirroring can reveal both male and female superiorities and that these measures need not correlate with measures of social cognition. We speculate that our results may be indicative of two dissociable motoric mirroring systems. Our analysis of Expt 2 indicates that we have replicated work in the literature that suggests a mirror system for response monitoring and have measured a sex difference for it.
