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.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
In Study 1, the results indicate that older adults benefit from congruent multisensory information in social situations, which is expressed by higher accuracy in cross-modal congruent condition but not in conditions where emotions were presented only in one modality i.e. faces and voice on their own.
The analysis of fixation time looking at facial features in Study 2 revealed that younger and older adults spend a similar amount of time looking at the eyes, mouth and periphery of the face and both groups looked longer at facial features in the incongruent condition than in the congruent condition. Older adults who looked less at the eye and mouth region were better at making matching decisions about congruent stimuli. In contrast, younger adults who looked longer at the facial features, performed better in matching cross-modal congruence than younger adults who spent less time looking at the faces.
The results from Study 3 suggest that older adults performed significantly more poorly than younger adults on both Theory of Mind tasks presented to multiple sensory modalities (video) and a single modality (text).

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Background: Efficient navigation of our social world depends on proper generation, interpretation and combination of social signals within different sensory systems. However, the influence of healthy adult ageing on multisensory integration of emotional and social stimuli remains poorly explored.
Method: The current study investigated the performance of 25 healthy older adults aged 60-80 years on unisensory (auditory and visual) and cross-modal tasks (audio-visual) related to emotion recognition. Performance was compared with 25 younger adults aged 19- 40 years.
Results: Resulting data suggest that older adults display difficulty in recognizing negative emotions within auditory and visual domains when compared with young adults. In contrast, older adults performed as good as younger adults on positive and negative emotional recognition tasks where both congruent auditory and visual emotional information is presented at the same time.
Discussion: The findings suggest that older adults benefit from congruent multisensory information in social situations where sensory information from multiple modalities is integrated into part of multisensory neural network.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives: Efficient navigation of our social world depends on the generation, interpretation and
combination of social signals within different sensory systems. However, the influence of adult
aging on cross-modal integration of emotional stimuli remains poorly understood. Therefore, the
aim of this work is to understand the integration of visual and auditory cues in social situations.
Methods: A series of multisensory integration experiments were designed to compare the ability
of younger and older adults to identify whether emotional faces and voices were presented
congruently or not. In an additional eye tracking experiment, younger and older adults were
compared in terms of their gaze behavior when identifying emotions through multiple sensory
modalities e.g. face and voice versus unisensory modalities e.g. face or voice.
Results: The results suggest that older adults are significantly less accurate at correctly identifying
emotions from one modality (faces or voices alone) but perform as well as younger adults on tasks
where congruent auditory and visual emotional information are presented concurrently. In
contrast, older adults are poorer than younger adults at detecting incongruency from different
sensory modalities. Furthermore, older adults who looked for a shorter time at the eye and mouth
regions are better at detecting cross-modal congruence than older adults who looked for longer. In
contrast, younger adults who looked longer at the whole face i.e. the eyes, mouth and the
periphery of the face perform best in congruence detection.
Conclusions and Discussion: Across the studies we found clear evidence that older adults had
difficulty in identifying emotions from faces and voices. However, these age differences in emotion
perception disappear when congruent multimodal information was available. Therefore, older
adults appear to benefit from congruent multisensory information. Moreover, the results suggest
that the age differences in the processing of relevant and irrelevant visual and auditory social
information might be related to changes in gaze behaviour.
