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.

Final report - Evaluating both precognition and presentiment among children in different age groups
Publication year: 2018
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Anecdotal reports suggest that PSI may be more apparent in young children, although there are few studies of age-related differences in PSI.
AIM OF THE STUDY
Our study investigated age-related differences in precognition and presentiment among children using a standardized laboratory test.
METHOD
Precognition and presentiment testing was performed for 120 children divided into three age groups, 3 to 6, 7 to 10, and 11 to 14 years of age. Each completed a computerized precognition task based on that distributed by Daryl Bem. Testing comprised 36 trials predicting the location of target images that elicted positive emotions or were non-emotional. Performance was determined as the percentage of correct predictions (hit rate).
RESULTS
All 120 participants, even the youngest, were able to complete the task as instructed. Comparisons of the three age group revealed significant differences in hit rate (F(2,117) = 3.11, p = .049), with the youngest performing best and the middle group worst (p = .01). Age-related differences were apparent for positive emotional images, but not for non-emotional images. Exploratory tests indicated that although performance was not better than chance in the full sample (N = 120), the young group did perform better than chance (p = .004) with a hit rate of 53.2%.
CONCLUSIONS
This pilot study demonstrated that computerized testing of precognition and presentiment is feasible in children across a broad age range. Results confirmed that age groups differed in performance, with the youngest group doing best. Further studies of age differences are warranted. A better understanding of PSI in children could be beneficial to both the fields of parapsychology and child development.
