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.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Within a Predictive Coding approach, the arousal/norepinephrine effects described by the GANE model seem to modulate the precision attributed to Prediction Errors, favoring the selective updating of predictive models with larger Prediction Errors.
However, to explain how arousal effects are triggered it is likely that different kinds of Prediction Errors (including interoceptive/affective) need to be considered.

Do cérebro triuno ao cérebro preditivo: 27 anos de neurociência afetiva
Publication year: 2017

http://ifilosofia.up.pt/activities/neurociencia-afetiva
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
O termo Neurociência Afetiva terá sido cunhado em 1990 pelo cientista Jaak Panksepp para capturar o domínio então em desenvolvimento do estudo neurobiológico dos processos emocionais. Uma forte influência na incepção da Neurociência Afetiva é a visão tripartida do cérebro humano como composto por três camadas filogeneticamente independentes, notoriamente divulgada por Paul Maclean: um cérebro reptiliano, sede dos instintos; um cérebro de mamífero inferior, locus da emoção; e um cérebro de mamífero superior, centro da razão. De facto, a abordagem de Maclean constitui o núcleo concetual da teoria das emoções primordiais de Panksepp. Esta visão é intuitivamente satisfatória e de facto ecoa uma estrutura concetual bastante mais antiga, que podemos encontrar no modelo da mente de Freud e mesmo na conceção de alma de Platão. Curiosamente, talvez o "cérebro triuno" revele mais sobre a antropologia da sociedades ocidentais do que sobre a neurobiologia do cérebro humano. De facto, o conhecimento atual em biologia evolutiva e neuroanatomia estrutural e funcional não são consistentes com a maior parte dos detalhes científicos da proposta de Maclean. Presentemente, discute-se um modelo alternativo do cérebro como um sistema preditivo inferencial, gerando previsões e comparando-as com os dados sensoriais de forma a regular o corpo e o comportamento de forma alostática. O "cérebro preditivo" configura-se como um paradigma emergente nas Neurociências Cognitivas e Afetivas que questiona a conceção tradicional de termos como "razão" e "emoção", sugerindo que estes fenómenos não constituem elementos fundamentais do psiquismo, mas emergem a partir da classificação das dinâmicas preditivas.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Attachment relationships influence the representations of the self and the others. This is thought to guide beliefs and perceptions, namely of emotional significant information as facial expressions of emotion(FEE). The goal of this work was to
understand how attachment dimensions are associated with neural responses to FEE. Twenty-seven healthy adults saw anger and happiness FEE, matched for arousal, and filled the Adult Attachment Scale, that measures the subscales of Anxiety, Close(comfort with intimacy) and Depend(sense of availability of others to one’s needs). A significant interaction between emotion and attachment showed that the 3 subscales were associated with N170 amplitude to happy, but not angry faces. Specifically, Anxiety scores predicted a reduction in N170 amplitude while Close and Depend scores predicted increased amplitudes to happy faces. An association was also found between the subscales and the LPP amplitude to both anger and happy faces in Anxiety (increased LPP) and in Depend (reduced LPP). Close scores were only negatively correlated with LPP amplitude for happy FEE. In sum, Anxiety affects the initial processing of happiness and leads to a larger later response to both FEE, possibly due to a hypervigilance to the meaning of these expressions towards the self. Contrarily, both Comfort with intimacy and Sense of Dependence increase early reactivity to happiness with reduced later processing (Depend for both FEE), illustrative of a secure pattern of emotional processing.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Psychopathy is a personality disorder that includes a set of distinct particularities in the affective, interpersonal and behavioural aspects, for instance, the absence of affective bonds, lack of feelings of remorse or empathy, impulsivity, disregard for the other, tendency for the individual in achieving what is desired without an emotional filter regarding the disturbance, and the ability to remain calm during high pressure situations. The literature on the subject connects psychopathy to deficit in the processing of emotional faces and to deficit in emotional reactivity, and more and more studies begin to analyse the facets of psychopathy using community samples, accepting the assumption that psychopathy represents a continuous property and divided by dimensions rather than a categorical property. The present study examined the contribution of the phenotypic dimensions Boldness, Meanness and Disinhibition, resulting from the triarchic conceptualization of psychopathy (Patrick, Fowles & Krueger, 2009) regarding emotional categorization and attribution of Activation, Valence and Intensity; for a set of facial expressions of Fear, Anger, Joy and neutral, in a 28 individuals community sample. Predicting a exclusive effect of Boldness on emotional categorization and emotional assignments, and no connection between Meanness / Disinhibition and our measures, we have developed three hypotheses: (1) Greater Boldness would be associated with greater errors in emotional category assignment; (2) Greater Boldness would be associated with valence levels closer to neutral in responses and with lower levels of activation and intensity in responses; (3) Meanness and Disinhibition would not be associated with participants' emotional responses. The results suggested that: higher scores on the Boldness subscale are not associated with deficit in emotional categorization, but are associated with Valence assignments closer to the neutral value, and with lower value assignments in the Intensity and Activation dimensions, which may suggest a relationship between Boldness and emotional hypo-responsiveness. Regarding the Meanness and Disinhibition dimensions, the results suggested that these two phenotypes are associated with the participants' emotional responses, and that subjects with higher levels in the Disinhibition subscale may show the presence of reactive aggression to emotional stimuli.

Understanding the development of face and emotion processing under a predictive processing framework

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In the present work, we explore the development of processing of emotional facial configurations under a predictive processing (or predictive coding) framework. Predictive processing provides a new approach to brain function that has been used to explain a wide range of processes, from perception to socioemotional processing. The explanatory power of this framework for adult brain function is widely recognized, but it has yet to be systematically applied to understanding the developing brain. Studying the findings of developmental research under this framework may allow a deeper understanding of the predictive mechanisms and their ontogenetic course, and adds to knowledge on brain functions and developmental processes. Therefore, the goal of this work was to explore the potential complementarity of predictive processing and development. Specifically, we focus on how the development of facial and emotion processing may be understood under a predictive processing framework. The processing of facial expressions was selected because of the developmental relevance of these stimuli, their impact on general emotional development, as well as the large body of literature on this topic (comprised of both well-established but also incongruent findings, which a novel approach may clarify). Considering the main findings of developmental research on the processing of emotion-related facial configurations under this framework, we argue that predictive processing is consistent with developmental evidence and provides a promising avenue for developmental research, as it reveals new questions in the fields of development and emotion processing.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
There are long standing debates in theories of emotion between categorical models of basic emotions (e.g., fear) and models that propose more fundamental affective dimensions (arousal/valence) that may be combined in different ways to give rise to emotions. Neuroscientific research on Facial Expressions of Emotion (FEE) has typically favored basic emotions models, but recent evidence highlights that the affective properties of facial displays are relevant for understanding how the brain processes emotional facial stimuli.
AIMS
The main goal of the project was to investigate the role of affective dimensions in the perception of and neural responses (EEG/ERP) to FEE, while retaining the concept of emotional categories as an important level of analysis. The Predictive Processing framework, that describes brain function in terms of predictions about the inputs that will be received according to existing prior representations, may provide a unifying model of emotional processing, combining categorical and dimensional aspects and overcoming some inconsistencies in the current literature, especially if considered in a developmental perspective.
METHOD
To fulfil this goal, there were several phases in this project. Over the course of the project, we developed novel theoretical accounts applying Predictive Processing models to Affective Neuroscience and Emotional Development. In terms of empirical studies, Phase 1 included three studies designed to assess how affective dimensions, such as arousal and valence, relate to (1) other facial features like the typicality of the face, (2) the presence of emotional or non-emotional content, and (3) emotional intensity. Phase 2 consisted of a cross-sectional study to assess the developmental evolution of FEE processing, covering over 100 children between 4 and 15 years old. We used self-reported affective ratings and event-related potentials (ERP) to examine the effects of emotional categories and affective properties of facial expressions.
RESULTS
The general trend of the results across studies in Phase 1 suggested that the arousal/emotional intensity of facial displays is an important influence on electrophysiological responses in adults. This corroborates previous findings from our groups supporting that arousal, rather than emotional categories, drives early visual cortical responses to facial expressions. In Phase 2, the developmental results suggest that children are initially more sensitive to differences in the valence of facial expressions, while adolescents show a transitional pattern that resembles neither childhood nor adulthood.
CONCLUSIONS
The affective dimensions of valence and arousal of FEE appear to be crucial to understanding how the brain processes facial displays. Children, adolescents, and adults show different neurophysiological responses to these affective dimensions that seem to configure a developmental trajectory: children seem to be more sensitive to the valence of FEE while adults appear more responsive to the level of arousal of the expression, and adolescents seem to show an intermediate pattern of results. These findings are consistent with a Predictive Processing account, in which the accumulated experience across development gradually changes the neural systems subserving the perception of FEE.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The neural bases of affective experience remain elusive. Early neuroscience models of affect searched for specific brain regions that uniquely carried out the computations that underlie dimensions of valence and arousal. However, a growing body of work has failed to identify these circuits. Research turned to multivariate analyses, but these strategies, too, have made limited progress. Predictive processing models offer exciting new directions to address this problem. Here, we use predictive processing models as a lens to critique prevailing functional neuroimaging research practices in affective neuroscience. Our review highlights how much work relies on rigid assumptions that are inconsistent with a predictive processing approach. We outline the central tenets of a predictive processing model and draw out their implications for research in affective and cognitive neuroscience. Predictive models motivate a reformulation of “reverse inference” in cognitive neuroscience, and placing a greater emphasis on external validity in experimental design.
