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.

Capturing PSI: Replicating von Lucadou's Correlation Matrix Experiment using a REG Mikro-PK
Publication year: 2014
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND AND METHOD: Psychokinesis (PK)-Experiments are beset by the problem of replicability. This became clear, when the largest replication of micro-PK failed (Jahn et al. 2000), driving the otherwise significant total PK-database towards a null effect (Bösch, Steinkamp & Boller 2006). In such experiments an operator is asked to change a true random process purely by intention. Von Lucadou has been arguing that PK effects are of a correlational nature, and hence will not be replicable if treated as a causal signal. To overcome this problem, he has advocated an indirect design. Thereby, the target outcome is not the mean-shift of the random-sequence as in classical PK-experiments, but a correlation-matrix. To create such a matrix, the PK-experimental set-up is slightly changed. The display of the random-sequence, in this case a fractal spiral that moves to the left or the right, can only be progressed if any out of three different buttons is pressed. The button press, however, has nothing to do with the direction into which the spiral moves. But the participants in the experiments will of course quickly generate hypotheses as to the meaning of the three different buttons. Apart from that the experiments comes with three, randomly sequenced, instructions to change the spiral's direction towards the left, the right, or keep it stable. Out of all potential psychological and physical variables a matrix of 45x45 cells is created of variables that can be correlated with the mean-shift in deviation from randomness. In previous experiments von Lucadou could show that he could replicate the fact that more significant correlations were produced than expected by chance. While the exact positioning of the correlations within the matrix changed over different experimental replications, the fact that the total number of correlations was always higher than expected by chance remained unaltered. Hence we started a large independent replication.
RESULTS: The experimental database was closed on the 31st of January 2014. We collected 398 runs. Currently the data are being evaluated and the results will be presented.

https://psycnet.apa.org/record/2019-46855-001
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We report an independent replication of a micro psychokinesis (PK) experiment. This is the fifth and largely independent replication of an experiment involving human intention operating on a random number generator (RNG). We assume that any “influence” of consciousness on a RNG is not a direct, causal influence, but due to as yet badly understood systemic correlations. We also introduced a new analytical, non-parametric strategy. We correlated physical variables, arising from the physical set-up of the experiment, with psychological variables derived from operator behavior, in a 45*45, i.e. 2025 cell matrix. We compared the number of significant correlations in the experiment with a control matrix, as well as with chance expectation, as specified in a pre-formulated protocol. We conducted a randomization test with 10,000 permutations to determine the true probability of receiving a difference in the number of significant correlations between the experimental and the control matrix. This test yields a replicative probability of p = 0.0177. This significance level varied in sensitivity analyses depending on the set of variables and method of analysis used. This shows that such effects seem to be more than just chance fluctuations and calls for a closer scrutiny by a larger consortium of researchers.

Naturalizing religion, spiritualizing science: The role of consciousness research
Publication year: 2020

https://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/imp/jcs/2020/00000027/f0020007/art00008
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper reviews and discusses empirical evidence from consciousness research, especially research into anomalies, and asks the question what, if taken seriously, would those data mean for our concepts of consciousness, science, and religion. It shows that the process of naturalization, i.e. finding scientific explanations for as yet badly understood phenomena, is not finished yet and could have a profound impact both on science and religion: traditional religious concepts would have to be reconsidered, and the scientistic materialist worldview that is currently implicitly underpinning much of science would prove to be untenable. The empirical evidence, if accepted, demands a concept of consciousness that grants consciousness some fundamental status in the world, and the capacity to non-locally connect to events and other consciousnesses. This would seem to preclude a materialist concept of science, as well as some fundamentalist concepts of religion. It would continue the process of naturalizing religion into some as yet uncharted territory.
