Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
OBJECTIVES:
To test teleportation phenomenon by a famous Chinese psychic and study brain blood flow change during teleportation tasks.
METHODS:
Subject was a Chinese female W004. Targets were vitamin C pills of Chocola (Eisai) on an electric balance or in a bottle. W004 tried to teleport pills in free style tests. One trial was 30-45 min. All tests were monitored by video cameras.
MEASUREMENTS:
Brain blood flow was measured by fNIRS; OMM-3000 (Shimadzu) which uses 3 NIR lasers of 780, 805 and 830nm. Respiration, electrodermal activity and photoplethysmograms were measured by MP150 (Biopack Systems). Pill weights were measured with an analytical semi-micro balance every second at 0.01 mg accuracy. Two RNGs and thermo sensors were set around the balance. An electrostatic voltmeter was set in front of the balance.
PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS:
W004 was given a profile questionnaire and 5 questionnaires on character traits. Uchida-Kraepelin Psychodiagnostic test was also done. To get usual activities for W004, she was given facial recognition tests using photos of a young Japanese woman's face as stimuli; six basic emotions were laughter, surprise, fear, anger, dislike and contempt, and 10 intermediate faces.
RESULTS:
Good results on teleportation were not obtained. There was no anomaly detected by the IR sensors and thermo camera. During PK tasks, electric charge of W004’s body vibrated at low frequency. Brain blood flow increased at her right hemisphere during teleportation tasks. The activated areas were similar to those during facial recognition tests. Personality of W004 was common, not abnormal.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The authors tested a famous Chinese psychic (female, 40 years old) during psychokinesis tasks “teleportation”. Targets were vitamin pills on an electric balance or in a bottle. The subject tried to teleport the pills in free style tests for 30-45 min. During the tasks, her brain blood flow was measured by functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), and also respiration, electrodermal activity and photoplethysmograms were measured. Pill weights were measured with an analytical semi-micro balance every second at 0.01 mg accuracy. Video cameras, field RNGs, a thermograph, field IR sensors and an electrostatic voltmeter were set near the balance. The subject was given a profile questionnaire and 5 questionnaires on character traits such as Big Five test. The Uchida-Kraepelin Psychodiagnostic test was also done. Moreover, to allow comparison to other studies, the subject was given a facial recognition test using photos of a young Japanese woman's face as stimuli. No teleportation phenomena were observed. Brain blood flow increased at the subject’s right cerebral hemisphere during the tasks. Activated areas were similar to those during facial recognition tests. Only one of the field RNGs showed a significant deviation during the experimental period. Electrostatic voltmeter measurements suggested that the electric charge of her body was disturbed slightly during tasks. Based on her results of psychological tests, the subject’s personality was evaluated as ordinary, and not special.

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.

Title:
Spatial distribution of invisible power around a healer: Advanced application of gas measurement method using cucumber as bio-sensor
Publication year: 2010
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
The authors tried to measure a spatial distribution (X-Y plane) of controlled healing power around a healer by a gas measurement method using cucumber (Cucumis sativus `white spin type') as a bio-sensor. The healer was W003 (a 41-year old female) who is well known as a psychic. After being seated in a chair, the healer then did non-contact healing (laying-on-of-hands) for 30 mm n to increase the odor of the target cucumber pieces in 2 experimental Petri dishes which were set on a table (67 cm height). To measure the distribution of potential around her body, cucumber pieces were next set at 20 points (70 cm height) around her: 4 points at 50 cm intervals in forward, backward, rightward and leftward directions from the healer; and 4 points al 45-degree angles between the four directions (about 2.5 m distant from her). Two healing trials were done with a 15-min rest between them. During Wats, control ¡Dieces were kept in another room (with a straight distance of 12 m between the healer and controls). After 24 h, gas concentrations of each cucumber sample were measured with gas detection tubes for ethyl acetate (141L, Gastec), and J values (the natural iogarithm of the ratio of gas concentrations of experimental and control samples) were calculated at every point. The results suggested that a specific potential was generated around the healer which was not the Coulomb potential, and this potential had anisotropy between the front-backward and right-leftward directions.

Various mental activities and brain blood flow measurements using fNIRS
Publication year: 2010
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a non-invasive imaging method for measuring brain activities. It is considered as useful to test sensitive subjects or to test some kinds of exercises. In the present paper focusing on results of fNIRS, the authors reviewed their studies on taichi-quan, meditative out-of-body experience (OBE), clairvoyance and metal-bending. Brain blood flow increased at pre-frontal area in taichi-quan, while it decreased there in meditative OBE. In guessing (clairvoyance) tasks, a psychic healer showed the increase of brain blood flow at frontal pole, but other subjects were different. Common non-psychic persons seemed to formulate visual images during clairvoyance tasks and they had a tendency to increase brain blood flow at temporal lobe. Moreover, it was suggested that mechanisms of remote viewing work with Psi Tech's techniques were different from ones of clairvoyance of genius psychics. In metal-bending tasks with brute force of hands, brain blood flow increased extremely at frontal pole. It suggested that some kinds of light exercises could activate brain blood flow at important areas which were considered to relate to psi.
