Title:
The role of the amygdala and the basal ganglia in visual processing of central vs. peripheral emotional content
Publication year: 2013

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In human cognition, most relevant stimuli, such as faces, are processed in central vision. However, it is widely believed that recognition of relevant stimuli (e.g. threatening animal faces) at peripheral locations is also important due to their survival value. Moreover, task instructions have been shown to modulate brain regions involved in threat recognition (e.g. the amygdala). In this respect it is also controversial whether tasks requiring explicit focus on stimulus threat content vs. implicit processing differently engage primitive subcortical structures involved in emotional appraisal.
Here we have addressed the role of central vs. peripheral processing in the human amygdala using animal threatening vs. non-threatening face stimuli. First, a simple animal face recognition task with threatening and non-threatening animal faces, as well as non-face control stimuli, was employed in naïve subjects (implicit task). A subsequent task was then performed with the same stimulus categories (but different stimuli) in which subjects were told to explicitly detect threat signals.
We found lateralized amygdala responses both to the spatial location of stimuli and to the threatening content of faces depending on the task performed: the right amygdala showed increased responses to central compared to left presented stimuli specifically during the threat detection task, while the left amygdala was better prone to discriminate threatening faces from non-facial displays during the animal face recognition task. Additionally, the right amygdala responded to faces during the threat detection task but only when centrally presented. Moreover, we have found no evidence for superior responses of the amygdala to peripheral stimuli. Importantly, we have found that striatal regions activate differentially depending on peripheral vs. central processing of threatening faces. Accordingly, peripheral processing of these stimuli activated more strongly the putaminal region, while central processing engaged mainly the caudate nucleus.
We conclude that the human amygdala has a central bias for face stimuli, and that visual processing recruits different striatal regions, putaminal or caudate based, depending on the task and on whether peripheral or central visual processing is involved.

Self-referential dysfunction and default-mode hyperactivation in psychophysiological insomnia patients: A case-control fMRI study
Publication year: 2017

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psychophysiological insomnia (PI) is one of the most frequent sleep disorders. In this study we tested whether differences in terms of neural activation are present between a group of PI patients and a healthy-control group while they are exposed to idiosyncratic ruminations and worries, evoked visually by words, so as to explore their hypothetical link with default-mode network (DMN) dysfunction in PI. We recruited five PI patients diagnosed according to the International Classification of Sleep Disorders, version 2 (ICSD-2) of American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and five age- and sex-matched healthy controls. Patients were recruited at the outpatient Sleep Medicine Centre of the Coimbra University Hospital Centre. We used a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) block-design paradigm where the participants visualized lists of words related to past/present and future concerns and also emotionally neutral words. The results suggested that the PI patients showed a failure of the DMN to deactivate. Moreover, when these patients were exposed to words concerning both past/present ruminations and future worries, there was a pronounced and significant over-recruitment of brain areas related to DMN and self-referential processing when they were compared to healthy volunteers. The differences between the patient and control groups were also evident in self-report measures. In sum, despite the relatively small sample size, our study clearly suggests that in PI there is a dysfunction in brain regions pertaining to self-referential processing, which is corroborated by an overall pattern of hyperarousal in brain regions comprising the DMN. These data may be useful in the improvement of pathophysiological models, diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for insomnia.

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.

Title:
Unbalanced resting-state networks activity in psychophysiological insomnia
Publication year: 2017

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psychophysiological insomnia (PI) is a clinical condition characterized by sleep-related disturbing cognitive activity and biased self-related information processing. This hypothetical cognitive arousal has been hypothesized to be associated with overactivation within different brain areas and networks, especially when individuals are at rest, e.g., in the absence of any attention-demanding task. In this study, we carried out a resting-state fMRI experiment aimed at investigating activity of the different resting-state networks in PI. Our pool of participants was compound of 5 PI patients and 5 sex- and age-matched healthy controls recruited from the community. Participants from both groups also completed a set of self-report measures, including the sleep diary, Insomnia Severity Index (ISI), dysfunctional beliefs and attitudes about sleep (DBAS-30), and the World Health Organization Quality of Life Measure (WHOQOL-Bref). Our results showed that insomnia patients presented altered activation in the default-mode network (DMN), visual and auditory networks, and bilateral fronto-parietal networks. In the DMN, the patients presented a pattern of both decreased (right superior frontal gyrus, left medial frontal gyrus, and right middle temporal gyrus) and increased activation (left superior frontal gyrus, left anterior and posterior cingulate, right precuneus, left cingulate gyrus, and left middle temporal gyrus). Our findings on unbalanced resting-state networks in PI, with special emphasis on the DMN, may lay grounds to better understanding of the cognitive arousal experienced by PI patients and might help to further improve the clinical management of insomnia.

Does cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia change the brain? A case series study
Publication year: 2019

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
PURPOSE
In this study, our aim was to examine neural correlates of cognitive–behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I).
METHODS
It was investigated to what extent successfully tailored CBT-I modified the neural activity pattern observed before the intervention, when two insomnia patients were exposed to idiosyncratic stimuli pertaining to past/present and future concerns in an fMRI experiment.
RESULTS
Our findings suggested that successful CBT-I seems to normalize brain overactivity. This finding is enhanced by the visible attenuation of activity in brain regions implicated in self-referential processing and by the significant activation within visual areas across all experimental conditions.
CONCLUSION
It is likely that psychological treatment changes the brain’s function in insomnia. However, studies with larger sample sizes are needed to establish solid evidence.

The effect of tailored cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia on brain’s resting-state networks

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Purpose
Insomnia is a highly prevalent disorder with important implications for health and well-being. It is well known the “hyperarousal hypothesis” in insomnia which assumes that patients present high levels of activation, in particular, cortical arousal.
Methods
A preliminary resting-state fMRI experiment comprising two non-medicated insomnia patients was performed to evaluate whether cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) changes the activation patterns of the most known resting-state brain networks, particularly, the default-mode network (DMN).
Results
As main results, we found modifications in the anterior component of the DMN, in the visual network, and in the auditory network after successful CBT-I. The most notable result was a decreased activity in the medial prefrontal cortex from pre- to post-intervention.
Conclusion
Findings from this preliminary study suggest that psychological treatment may translate modifications in neural activity of insomnia patients.
