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 addition to learning signs associated with specific threats, animals can use con-specific alarm signals (such as alarm pheromones and calls) and eavesdrop on other species. These mechanisms allow animals to avoid the necessity of learning through what might be a fatal encounter with a predator. Our laboratory has recently shown that rats use freezing as a signal of threat. In our study, we trained one rat, the demonstrator, to fear a tone cue and the next day tested their fear of the cue in the presence of the cage-mate, the observer. We found that observer rats perceive the cessation of movement-evoked sound (caused by freezing of the demonstrator) as a signal of danger and its resumption as a signal of safety. In addition, we have found that observer rats previously exposed to footshocks display observational freezing, but naive observer rats do not, indicating that learning from self-experience with an aversive event is important for rats to respond to freezing displayed by others. We hypothesize that rats learn to associate their own freezing response with the aversive shock, such that later on freezing itself becomes an alarm cue. Indeed, experiments in the lab have shown that exposure to shock, or contextual fear learning in the absence of freezing, are not sufficient to allow for observational freezing. This set of experiments paved the way to the underpinnings of the neural mechanism underlying social transmission of fear in rats.

Silence resulting from the cessation of movement signals danger

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Most of what we know about the neural basis of fear has been unravelled by studies using associative fear learning [1]. However, many animal species are able to use social cues to recognize threats [2,3], a defence mechanism that may be less costly than learning from self-experience. Most studies in the field have focused on species-specific signals, such as alarm calls or pheromones, remaining unclear whether more generic cues can mediate this process. Here we report that rats perceive the cessation of movement-evoked sound as a signal of danger and its resumption as a signal of safety. To study transmission of fear between rats we assessed the behavior of an observer while witnessing a demonstrator cage-mate display fear responses. Having tested a multitude of cues, we found that observer rats respond to an auditory cue which signals the sudden immobility of the demonstrator rat the cessation of the sound of motion. As freezing is a pervasive fear response in animals [4,5], silence may constitute a truly public cue used by a variety of animals in the ecosystem to detect impeding danger.
