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:
Experienced meditators occasionally report experiences of "timelessness," or states of awareness that seem to transcend the usual boundaries of the subjective present. This study explored the nature of such experiences by measuring 32 channels of EEG prior to exposure to unpredictable light and sound stimuli in eight experienced meditators and eight matched controls. The experiment postulated (a) that if some aspect of perception extends into the future, then prestimulus measurements would differ depending on stimuli that were about to be selected by a truly random process, and (b) that such differences would be more apparent in meditators than in non-meditators.
Each of the 32 EEG channels was baseline-adjusted on each trial by the electrical potential averaged from 2 seconds to 1 second pre-stimulus. Then for each channel the average potential was determined from 1 second pre-stimulus to stimulus onset. The resulting means across subjects in each group were compared by stimulus type using randomized permutation procedures and corrected for multiple comparisons using False Discovery Rate. Within the control group, no EEG channels showed significant pre-stimulus differences between light vs. sound stimulus conditions, but within the meditator group 5 of 32 channels showed significant differences (p < 0.05, two-tailed). Comparisons between control and meditator groups showed significant pre-stimulus differences prior to audio tone stimuli in 14 of 32 channels (p < 0.05, two-tailed, of which 8 channels were at p < 0.005, two-tailed). This outcome successfully replicates effects observed in conceptually similar experiments.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Advanced meditators occasionally report experiences of timelessness, or states of awareness that seem to transcend the usual boundaries of the subjective present. This type of experience was investigated in eight experienced meditators and eight matched controls by measuring 32 channels of EEG before, during, and after exposure to unpredictable light and sound stimuli. The experiment postulated that if some aspect of consciousness extends beyond the present moment, then prestimulus electrocortical signals should differ depending on stimuli that were about to be selected by a truly random process, and that if such experiences were catalyzed through meditation practice, then prestimulus differences should be more apparent in meditators than in nonmeditators. Each of the 32 EEG channels was baseline adjusted on each trial by the electrical potential averaged between two- and one-second prestimulus, then for each channel the average potential was determined from one-second prestimulus to stimulus onset. The resulting means across subjects in each group were compared by stimulus type using randomized permutation procedures and corrected for multiple comparisons. Within the control group, no EEG channels showed significant prestimulus differences between light versus sound stimulus conditions, but within the meditator group five of 32 channels resulted in significant differences (P < .05, two tailed). Comparisons between control and meditator groups showed significant prestimulus differences prior to audio tone stimuli in 14 of 32 channels (P < .05, two tailed, of which eight channels were P < .005, two tailed). This outcome successfully replicates effects reported in earlier experiments, suggesting that sometimes the subjective sense of awareness extending into the future may be ontologically accurate.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The world’s spiritual and religious literature abounds with descriptions of mystical states of consciousness in which perceptions of the boundaries between a separate subject (the self) and object (the other) dissolve. Recent scholarship on these states, by psychologists in collaboration with spiritual practitioners and leaders, have dubbed this type of awareness “nondual,” to reflect the perceived lack of separation between subject and
object. During these states, experiencers often report that their sense of threedimensional space and linear time shifts.
OBJECTIVES:
The overall aim of this project is to investigate neurobiological correlates of nondual states of awareness, and to explore whether perceptions of timelessness are illusions that have a purely subjective impact on those who experience them, or if they are genuinely enhanced levels of awareness that allow experiencers to perceive an ontologically accurate dimension of reality.
METHODS:
To investigate this we are monitoring physiological markers of non-dual states of awareness, and will correlate those markers with performance on an experimental task that provides an unconscious measure of perceptual awareness through time (i.e., a presentiment test). Experienced practitioners of nondual awareness teachings and practices are being compared with matched controls who have had no experience with meditation. EEG frequencies and evoked potentials are being compared 1) in advanced practitioners who are in non-dual states of awareness vs. active control and rest periods, and 2) with non-meditators between periods of imagining such states of consciousness and active control and rest periods. The project will shed light on the neurobiological underpinnings of nondual states of awareness, as well as examining whether these states enhance implicit precognition.
