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:
A defining aspect of Spiritual Emergency (SE) is a ‘Psychic Opening’, which may predict psi performance. This study tested paranormal (psi) performance of individuals who had or were having experiences of Spiritual Emergency (i.e. ‘SE-experients’), and compared their performance against controls. The study also assessed psychological aspects of SE to differentiate it from psychosis and other proposed psi-inhibitive symptoms—namely, alogia (i.e. poverty of speech), depression, anxiety, and stress. Two groups of participants were formed: controls (mainly psychology students) and SE-experients. Participants either completed
the study on a computer in the laboratory or online. Questionnaires on Spiritual Emergency (which includes a subscale on Psychic Opening), positive symptoms of psychosis, alogia, spiritual identity, paranormal belief, mysticism, depression, anxiety, and stress, were administered to participants, who then completed the Imagery Cultivation (IC) pictureidentification psi task, which uses a shamanic-like journeying protocol (Storm & Rock, 2009a, 2009b). The differences between controls and SE-experients on the psi measures, Direct Hitting (as a percent hit-rate) and Mean Rank Scores, were not significant, but the Sum-of-Ranks difference was highly significant. Also, SE-experients had a marginally significant Mean Rank Score. Direct Hitting did not correlate significantly
with any variable, except Rank Scores, which correlated significantly with Psychic Opening, spiritual identity, and paranormal belief, and marginally significantly with Spiritual Emergency. Direct Hitting, Rank Scores, and SE did not correlate significantly with alogia, depression, anxiety, or stress, but the psychosis measure did correlate significantly with alogia, depression, anxiety, stress, and SE. The statistical evidence suggests that some proportion of SE-experients experience Psychic Opening. While SE and psychosis overlap, only SE was predicted by spiritual identity, extrovertive mysticism, and paranormal belief (but not alogia), whereas psychosis was predicted by alogia only.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND AND AIM
A defining aspect of Spiritual Emergency (SE) is ‘psychic opening’ which may predict psi performance. This study tested psi performance of individuals experienced in spiritual emergency, and compared performances with controls. Also assessed were psychological aspects of SE to differentiate it from psychosis, alogia, depression, anxiety, and stress.
METHOD
Two groups: controls (Psych. students) and SE-Experients. Participants completed the study on computer. Questionnaires on SE, psychic opening, psychosis, spiritual identity, paranormal belief, mysticism, depression, anxiety, and stress were administered to participants, who then completed the Imagery Cultivation (IC) picture-identification psi task (Storm & Rock, 2009).
RESULTS
The differences between controls and SE-experients on the psi measures, direct hitting (hit-count) and mean rank scores, were not significant, but the sum-of-ranks difference was highly significant. SE-experients had a near-significant mean rank score. Direct hitting did not correlate significantly with psychosis, alogia, SE, psychic opening, spiritual identity, paranormal belief, or mysticism, but rank scores correlated significantly with psychic opening, spiritual identity, and paranormal belief, and marginally significantly with SE. Direct hitting, rank scores, and SE did not correlate significantly with the psychosis measures (depression, anxiety, and stress), but psychosis did correlate significantly with alogia, depression, anxiety, stress, and SE.
CONCLUSIONS
The statistical evidence suggests SE-experients experienced more psychic opening and more psi than controls. SE was differentiated from psychosis, by not correlating with alogia, depression, anxiety, or stress.
