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:
BACKGROUND
Most neuroscientists believe that brain generates consciousness, An alternative view is that mind operates independent of its associated brain but is dependent on the brain for expression. The idea that brain generates consciousness is challenged by near-death experiences (NDEs), complex experiences that can occur when the brain is severely disabled. Exploration of brain activity during NDEs may shed light on the mind-brain relationship.
AIM OF THE STUDY
We reviewed the medical record of a detailed NDE during deep coma, focusing on the severity of condition and neurophysiology, in order to assess the implications of such NDEs for the mind-brain relationship.
METHOD
Three physicians separately reviewed the medical record of an 8-day coma during which the patient experienced a vivid NDE.
RESULTS
The patient had an NDE with vivid perceptions, intense emotions, and clear memory, including of events around his body during the period of deepest coma. Medical records document that he was not expected to survive and that his brain function was severely impaired and unable to generate consciousness at the time of the NDE.
CONCLUSION
The patient was comatose and unresponsive, but nonetheless had a vivid NDE including complex perceptions, cognitions, emotions, and memory. This NDE during documented deep coma is incompatible with consciousness being produced by brain, but is compatible with consciousness being filtered by brain. We encourage other clinical investigators to report examples of NDEs in patients with severely compromised brain function in order to explore further the brain mechanisms associated with complex consciousness and the relationship between consciousness and brain function.

Full neurological recovery from E. coli meningitis associated with near-death experience

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A 54-year-old otherwise healthy man presented with altered mental status. On admission, the patient was confused and agitated, with a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score of 11, suggesting moderate brain injury. He was sedated, placed on a ventilator, and started on tobramycin and ceftazidime for presumed bacterial meningitis, but switched to ceftriaxone once cultures returned as Escherichia coli. During his 8-day hospitalization, his mental status fluctuated from confused to nonresponsive, with GCS scores between 6 and 11. Although E. coli meningitis has a high rate of neurological complications and death, this patient recovered completely without any deficits, and recalled an elaborate near-death experience that occurred during his coma. This case highlights the importance of studying near-death experiences occurring during compromised brain function to further our understanding of the brain and consciousness.
