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.

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:
BACKGROUND
Two studies were done exploring the effectiveness of two PK imagery strategies derived from a survey of popular writings on how to develop psychic skills. Goal oriented imagery involves visualizing only the final outcome or desired goal; process oriented imagery involves visualizing some sort of process gradually leading up to the desired final outcome.
METHOD
The sample included 62 participants, females (72%) and males (28%). In a first study, 62 subjects were asked to bias the behavior of a visual display controlled by a random number generator (Psyleron v.2011), using each imagery strategy half the time (8 runs of 16 trials for each strategy). In a second study, we investigate (with 62 subjects) the effects of two psychologically distinct techniques of attempting to influence Psyleron´s visual display.
RESULTS
There was significant positive overall evidence for PK (p < .02) and for PK during goal oriented imagery (p < .01). An ANOVA revealed that goal oriented imagery scores were significantly greater than process oriented scores, that prior training was not itself a significant factor, but that imagery strategy and prior training interacted significantly (p < .02).
CONCLUSIONS
The difference between the two groups was also significant (p < .02). Thus the goal oriented imagery strategy appears to be more effective than the process oriented strategy, at least for those with no prior exposure to mental development training.

Psi and death of the person-target: An experiment with highly emotional iconic representations
Publication year: 2013

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A number of psychics have gained a reputation as psychic detectives using such clues as photographs, a town map, or a piece of clothing. In fact, dowsing has long been espoused as a technique for helping individuals to utilize untrained psi abilities, in terms of unconscious muscular movements, while the pendulum acts as an amplifier of subconscious ideomotor movements. The aim of this study was to compare mental and motor conditions using images of dead people as targets. In one iteration, photographs were used of the person-targets in order to determine if the participants scored differently when using mental or motor procedures. In another, the same approach used highly emotional iconic representations, that is, images of people who had committed suicide. The sample consisted of 214 female and male participants (Mean age = 43.84; SD = 13.40) who had reported personal experiences suggestive of psi. Four trials were performed for the "mental" (psychometry) procedures and four for the "motor" (pendulum) procedures. After a number of security measures, including randomized procedures and control groups, the results showed that the "mental" (psychometry) condition scored significantly above chance (MCE = 2; Mean Mental = 2.39, t = 4.55; p < .001), and also scored significantly higher than the "motor" condition (p = .004). In the second group of trials, the results also showed that the "mental" condition scored significantly above chance (Mean Mental = 2.14, t = 1.44; p .075); however, in this group, the "mental" condition did not score significantly higher than the "motor" condition. We conclude that the study offers support for the claim that iconic representation through psychometry is psi conducive. However, in the second analysis, one tentative interpretation would be that the psi information was blocked by some psychological defense mechanism in response to an unpleasant association with the stimulus.
