  • Search by access fields (e.g. author, title, etc.):
    • To direct your search, choose the field in which you want to search the word or expression.
    • Search in the field assumes by default the expression in quotes, e.g. European union will retrieve all records containing the literal term "European Union"
  • To perform more complex searches, additional words or expressions may be added.
  • If you want to refine the search results, you can always access the link "search" in the upper left corner of the page of search results.

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: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
The ability to process multiple domains of the human face it is a well-developed capability in humans, contributing significantly to social interaction. The extraction of emotional content out of facial features is one such domain, which involves well-known brain structures, whose detailed contribution is nevertheless poorly characterized.
OBJECTIVES:
Our emphasis is on detection and functional characterization of the brain areas involved in emotional processing of faces, with particular focus on the contribution of frontal lobes to processing of basic facial emotion expressions, such as fear and happiness. Methods: Participants were ten healthy volunteers and five patients with occipital lobe epilepsies. Mapping neurovascular (BOLD) responses to fear, happy and neutral facial expressions were obtained through functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).
RESULTS:
The results from the group of volunteers were used as a base for the construction of a quantitative database that included the following brain structures: fusiform gyrus, insula, amygdala, cingulate gyrus, and frontal-orbital cortex. The maximum Z-score obtained from each ROI as responses to the contrast fear-neutral faces produced higher statistically significant activations in the areas selected. Responses in clinical patients revealed focal impairments only in right hemisphere epilepsies, consistent with a hemispheric asymmetry for emotional processing.
CONCLUSIONS:
The frequent association of some brain structures involved in facial emotion processing in epilepsy suggests that the proposed mapping protocol can be clinically useful to gain deeper insights into the anatomical-functional correlations of this disease.
