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: RESULTS:
As part of our ongoing search for neurons in the central nervous system that are specialized for sensing anomalous cognition (AC), we conducted an experiment to detect event-related desynchronizations (ERD’s) resulting from an AC stimulus. An ERD is the abrupt and momentary decrease of alpha power as a reaction to an external stimulus or an internal cogitative or motion-initiating trigger.
Three receivers (i.e., experiment participants) contributed a total of 70 trials during which both AC and EEG data were collected. The AC data, which have been blind judged by the usual rank-order method, yielded independently significant results for two of the three receivers, and the overall AC result was significant at p=0.006 (ES = 0.303).
Using a cross correlation technique, which was twice as sensitive as standard signal averaging, we did not observe any evidence for an ERD in response to an AC stimulus. Our analysis technique was sensitive enough to detect a 20% decrease of prestimulus alpha power.
We provide a number of potential arguments to understand this result and suggest an experiment using positron emission tomography to continue the search for an AC correlate in the central nervous system.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Although the psychomanteum technique was designed to facilitate reunion experiences with deceased individuals, is not normally employed to seek ESP information. The aim is of this research project was to explore whether the psychomanteum technique encourages a psi-conducive state of consciousness, which would result in scoring that is significantly above MCE. One hundred and thirty participants (92 females and 38 males; Mean age= 47.44) were recruited by announcements in newspapers and our web site. Seventy eight percent claimed to have had a variety of ESP experiences. A number of variables, such as vividness of imagery and hallucinatory experience, were examined. Two conditions, psychomanteum and non-psychomanteum condition, were compared. A CD-pool containing 200 high-quality color pictures, such as animals, icons, foods, people, landscapes, religion, scenic pictures, structures, and humoristic cartoons, were designed using a RNG for randomization. Under psychomanteum condition, psi-hitting was obtained (30.8% above MCE); however, under no-psychomanteum (“control”) condition, 29.2% was obtained (where 25% was expected). The results differ slightly from MCE in the psychomanteum condition (p= .02, one-tailed) in comparison with no-psychomanteum condition, but no significant differences were found. A number of positive correlations were also found, for instance, participants who attained higher scores on auditory and visual hallucinations tended to demonstrate psi-hitting.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The mirror gazing procedure termed the "psychomanteum" was developed by the world renowned psychiatrist Dr. Raymond Moody. It was designed to facilitate reunion experiences with deceased individuals, as a means of addressing the feelings surrounding bereavement. Although the modern psychomanteum is not normally employed to seek ESP information about the future, it may be that the psychomanteum is psi-conductive. For example, there are many similarities and differences between psychomanteum experiences and accounts of hypnagogic/hypnopompic imagery, which is conducive to ESP. The aim is of this paper was to explore whether the psychomanteum technique encourages a psi-conducive state of consciousness, which would result in scoring that is significantly above MCE. One hundred and thirty participants (92 females and 38 males; Mean age= 47.44) were recruited by announcements in newspapers and our web site. Seventy eight percent claimed to have had a variety of ESP experiences. A number of variables, such as vividness of imagery and hallucinatory experience, were examined. Two conditions, psychomanteum and no-psychomanteum condition, were compared. A CD-pool containing 200 high-quality color pictures, such as animals, icons, foods, people, landscapes, religion, scenic pictures, structures, and humoristic cartoons, were designed using a RNG for randomization. Under psychomanteum condition, psi-hitting was obtained (30.8% above MCE); however, under no-psychomanteum ("control") condition, 29.2% was obtained (where 25% was expected). The results differ slightly from MCE in the psychomanteum condition ( p= .02, one-tailed) in comparison with nopsychomanteum condition, but no significant differences were found. A number of positive correlations were also found, for instance, participants who attained higher scores on auditory and visual hallucinations tended to demonstrate psi-hitting.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
There are many points of comparison between psychomanteum experiences and accounts of hypnagogic/hypnopompic imagery, which might suggest that both could be conducive to ESP. In this paper we report on our attempts to study personality variables, as measured by the NEO-PI-R, with a group of individuals recruited to participate in psychomanteum ESP testing at the Instituto de Psicologia Paranormal in Buenos Aires. The sample included 128 participants, of whom 91 (72%) were female and 37 (28%) were male (mean age = 47.25; SD = 12.02). Our prediction of a positive correlation between the index of prior psi experiences and Extraversion was confirmed. However, our prediction of a positive correlation between the Psi index (count of paranormal experiences) and Openness to experience was not confirmed, except the facet Feelings (Openeness), that is Openness to inner feelings and emotions. An inspection of the comparisons found between psi/psychomanteum performance and personality aspects did not confirm the trends found in previous work on the relation between personality and performance at an experimental psi task.

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.

Title:
Unusual perceptual experiences and ESP under psychomanteum stimulation: Imagery/hallucination proneness and schizotypal personality measures
Publication year: 2010

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Although the psychomanteum, originally designed to facilitate reunion experiences with deceased individuals, is not normally employed to test ESP, it may be that it is psi-conducive. This study aimed to test psi performance in high-scoring participants on measures of unusual perceptual experiences and unusual thinking styles. One hundred twenty eight participants were asked to verbalize their mental impressions as much as possible after psychomanteum stimulation. A number of significant results were found. Participants who scored high on visual imagery, visual, auditory, and tactile hallucination, tended to psi-hit. Only the high-scoring visual imagery, visual and tactile hallucination groups (but not the auditory hallucination group) scored significantly higher than the low-scoring groups. Given that suggestion may have a causal role in the experience of anomalous perception, it is plausible that the incidence of psi in the psychomanteum is a function of explicit suggestions for such experiences presented during the facilitation procedure, which may be augmented by restricted stimulation and dissociation.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
In the course of this project three experiments were conducted, all using SC as the indicator of psi. In the first experiment IAPS pictures, mostly of mutilated bodies, erotic and neutral scenes, were presented to the sender whilst mean log SC and mean variance of SC were taken as dependent measures. There was an emotional-neutral as well as a positive-negative-neutral comparison. The results can be seen in table 1. Only for mean variance in the differential comparison was a strong trend observed (?² = 8.197, df = 2, p = 0.017, two-tailed).
In the second experiment (N = 30) threatening video clips of dangerous animals were used. No significant differences were observed. Post hoc, a significant correlation was found between the gender of the sender and receiver and psi performance (F = 9.258, df = 1, p = 0.005) for mean log SC. A similar pattern was observed for mean variance. The interaction was such that when the gender of the sender and receiver was different psi performance was high (see figure 1).
The third experiment (N = 18) compared picture and video conditions directly. Differences in all comparisons were in the predicted direction, with a strong trend for mean variance in the clip condition (see table2).
No significant gender interactions were observed, but the pattern for mean variance for clips was similar to that observed in the previous experiment. This suggests the pattern may be genuine.
On the whole, the project found only marginal evidence for psi, but this exploration into emotional picture and clip stimulus material may prove valuable to future researches. As for individual differences, no relationships between personality and psi performance were observed. The gender interaction may be confirmed by further study.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
This project was aimed at testing and improving an experimental protocol for successful ESP research derived from a previous phase of research (Perez-Navarro, 2003).
One first study (N=60) was conducted to explore a set of participants’ traits, state, and environmental factors as predictors of the study success. Five variables showed significant associations with the participants’ ESP scores at an =.01. These were: sensory adaptation, concern on the external environment, absorption, and task disorientation during the Ganzfeld stimulation as well as pre-session energetic arousal. A stepwise forward logistic regression analysis, performed on the predictors with p-values of .05 or less, showed a 3 variable solution. Thus, the probability of obtaining a hit in a given experiment was accounted by pre-session energetic arousal, concern about the external environment, and task disorientation during the Ganzfeld stimulation.
On the basis of the most successful predictors in this study a second experiment was designed and conducted. This second study (N=90) showed a significant hit rate of 33% (z=1.86, p= 0.03, one tail). Only four of the predictors tested replicated both significance and direction from the previous study. These were neuroticism, sensory adaptation, absorption, and task disorientation during the Ganzfeld stimulation. Three further variables (practice of mental disciplines, pre-session arousal, and arousal during the Ganzfeld stimulation) replicated direction but did not reach statistical significance in this second series.
Post-hoc analysis in this second series proved that operating simultaneously on three domains (participant selection, pre and on-session state, and post-hoc indicators of the occurrence of psi), screening for participants and/or weighting sessions, on the basis of the successful predictors observed in the pilot series was an efficient strategy, increasing the rate of success in this second study from 33% to 43.2%.

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:
In this paper we present a method for participant classification, based on trait and state, in the experimental evaluation of ESP (extrasensory perception). We conducted three Ganzfeld experiments with a sample of 237 participants. In experiment I (N = 60) twenty participants ranked the target stimulus in the first position, achieving a non-significant rate of correct guesses of 33.3% (z = 1.48, p = .07, one tailed). In experiment II (N = 90) only 26.6% of the participants’ guesses were correct (z = .35, p = .36, one tailed). Weighting trials in the second experiment on the basis of the most successful predictors of the participants’ performance in the first experiment increased the rate of correct guesses from 26.6% to 36.4%. Results in a confirmatory experiment (N = 87) were not significant (32.7%, z = 1.32, p = .09, one tailed). However, overall results in this study were consistent with the effects sizes data reported in previous meta-analyses.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Sixty-four participants (Ps) completed 4 runs guessing sequences of the digits 1 through 4. Immediate feedback of targets was given only in Run 4. Ps made each response orally and by simultaneously clicking a mouse. In the 1st 2 runs (81 trials each) targets reflected extreme repetition avoidance (RA) or counting (1,2,3,4,1,2 …). Ps scored significantly (sig.) positively on RA sequences only, with the degree of RA correlating sig. negatively with correct guesses (hits) among believers in the paranormal. Run 3 (101 trials) included a test of May’s decision augmentation theory (DAT). Targets were random except for trials following trials in which P clicked the mouse when an unknown computer address contained a “1” (P = .2). On such trials the target was determined by P’s response bias in Runs 1-2, such as to increase the chances of a hit. Believers clicked the mouse sig. more often than chance when the computer was in the 1-state and sig. more often than skeptics, supporting DAT. In Run 4 (101 trials) half the Ps received as targets, after Trial 10, their previous responses in the run (pro-bias condition). The other Ps received targets opposite their response biases from Runs 1-2 (counter-bias condition). Half of each group received the feedback subliminally. Implicit sequence learning occurred sig. across all cells, but only for skeptics. This result could have been mediated by a lack of temporal lobe signs, on a measure of which skeptics scored much lower than believers. Consistent with an “anomalous anticipation effect” demonstrated in previous research, Ps’ response biases in Run 3 sig. predicted whether they would receive a pro- or counter-bias target sequence in Run 4, but only if Run 4 feedback was subliminal.
