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:
Study 1 compared success rates of ‘live’ receivers and an RNG analogue. During a ‘standard’ autoganzfeld sending period, a ‘virtual’ receiver (an RNG) selected from among 768 statements that described all clips in a pool of 96 videos (8 for each clip). The 8 most frequently selected were given to an independent judge as a ‘virtual mentation’. The ‘live’ receiver correctly identified the target on 14 trials (35% hit rate; MCE = 25%), significantly better than chance (sum of ranks Z = 1.77, p = .038). Virtual mentations gave an encouraging 13 hits (32.5%; SOR Z = 1.48, p = .069). Study 2 compared sender and no-sender trials. Receivers scored at chance, slightly better in sender trials than no sender trials (26.1% versus 23.5%). Two independent judges using the virtual mentation produced hit rates of 30.6% and 16.7%; both gave non-significantly higher hit rates for the sender trials than for the no sender trials (42.1% versus 17.6%; 26.3% versus 5.9%), indicative of a sender effect. Study 3 manipulated target lability, comparing a true RNG, the PC’s pseudorandom function
and a pre-generated set of random numbers. We did not recruit ‘live’ receivers, but accurately briefed participants about the study and gave immediate feedback. Significant psi hitting was not obtained in any single condition, but there was a predicted interaction effect between target and sender lability, (F4, 74 = 4.959, p = .001); ‘stable’ senders gave highest psi hitting with the most labile target system, while labile senders showed the reverse. This effect was replicated in Study 4 (F4,74 = 2.747, p = .034), which also found a trend supporting a predicted interaction between feedback and sending strategy (F = (1,36) = 3.061, p = .053).

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In recent work to evaluate the sender's role in successful ganzfeld GESP experiments, we have used a random number generator (RNG) as a ?virtual receiver? in a ganzfeld-like experiment. During the sending period, statements are ?selected? from a pool of items to give an ?ENG mentation? to be used by an independent judge. After early success in demonstrating the basic effect, later work has explored the effects of the lability of the target selection method (random number table, pseudorandom process, and live RNG) and of the participant (high, intermediate, or low, based on a composite measure) and found a predicted interaction effect between these factors. The present study was designed to confirm that finding and extend it by exploring a putative interaction effect between sending strategy (active/willing versus passive/absorbed) and feedback type (delayed versus immediate). Forty participants generated virtual readings consisting of 24 statements, 8 from each of the 3 selection methods. A significant interaction was found between target lability and sender lability, replicating our earlier effect. Although the interaction effect between sending strategy and feedback type was nonsignificant, a predicted significant effect of feedback for participants in the willing strategy condition was found.

Title:
Final report - The Manipulation of Ganzfeld ESP Performance by the Control of Implicit Percipient Variables
Publication year: 2005

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
In stage one, 190 "mentation" transcripts of a body of ganzfeld data previously collected were analyzed on a number of variables measuring aspects of implicit attitude, emotional adjustment and perceptual style. A composite predictive scale derived from analyzing earlier data succeeded in discriminating hitting and missing cases in the new dataset. Supporting the validity of the approach. Then both datasets were combined, and new predictions were generated. Two variables, having to do with the approaches of positive self-transcendence and intellectualization were carried over to the second stage in which we tried to manipulate the levels of these dimensions and thereby gain some control over the ESP performance.
In stage two, 80 percipients and agent/partners were tested. Half of the subjects of each group were randomly assigned to either the “Enhanced” or the Standard/Control group. In the “Enhanced” condition we attempted to increase the experience of “Merger/Harmony” (a state of lowered personal boundaries and expansive well-being and sense of connection), and lower the approach of “Intellectualization” (a tendency to employ cognitive analysis). The Control condition was a standard ganzfeld. Percipients rated the target and provided post-session experiential reports. Contrary to our hopes, the “Enhanced” condition did not yield higher ESP scores, nor did it yield more psi-conducive aspects of experience as reflected in the post-session reports. Overall significant psi performance was observed in the form of an excess of extreme ranks. Performance was better in emotionally close sender/receiver pairs and in opposite-gender pairs. When percipients experienced the session in a more “altered” way in terms of lowered bodily awareness and loss of body boundaries, performance was better.

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:
Sixteen experimenters conducted a total of 114 ganzfeld trials. Experimenter
expectancy regarding the likely success of the experiment was manipulated so that half
the experimenters were given a positive expectancy of success and half are given a
negative expectancy. Experimenters’ attitudes towards psi were also measured and
classified as either ‘high’ or ‘low’. The effects of these independent variables upon
participants’ confidence of success and actual performance on a ganzfeld-ESP task were
assessed. The overall hit-rate was 34.2% (39/114 trials) and was statistically significant
(p=0.02), although there was the potential for optional stopping.
A 2 x 2 ANOVA revealed no significant main effect of experimenter attitudes towards
psi upon psi scores (measured by Z-scores), F(1, 113)=0.32, p=0.58. Nor was there a
significant main effect of experimenter expectancy, F(1,113)=2.35, p=0.13. No
significant interaction was found between experimenter attitudes towards psi and
experimenter expectancy, F(1,113)=0.08, p=0.78.
A 2 x 2 ANOVA revealed no significant main effect of experimenter attitudes towards
psi upon Receivers’ confidence scores, F(1, 105)=1.64, p=0.20, or Senders’ confidence
scores, F(1, 103)=3.09, p=0.08, although it approached significance for Senders’
confidence. Whilst there was also no significant main effect of experimenter expectancy
upon Receivers’ confidence, F(1,105)=0.23, p=0.64, there was a significant effect of
experimenter expectancy upon Senders’ confidence, F(1, 103)=7.06, p=0.009. No
significant interaction was found between experimenter attitudes towards psi and
experimenter expectancy for either Receivers’ confidence, F(1,105)=0.91, p=0.34, or
Senders’ confidence, F(1, 103)=0.89, p=0.35.

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:
Two studies exposed participants to separate sets of pictures in subliminal and extra-sensory ways. Messages intended to influence mood were also presented 5 times. An early memory was rated for valence as a measure of mood. Exposed pictures were paired with matched, unexposed pictures and participants were asked to say which they preferred. This tests the Mere Exposure Effect (MEE), assuming that the pre-exposed pictures will be preferred. We also assessed variables predicted to influence both effects, based upon prior findings and first sight theory.
In the first study (59 females, 19 males) the messages intended to affect mood were presented subliminally, in the second study they were presented extrasensorily (completely blocked). In the second study (75 females, 18 males), the relationships found to most strongly predict extrasensory and subliminal preferences in the first study were combined to test for confirmation.
In Study one, extrasensory response was expected to be affected by three facets of openness; anxiety, creativity, belief in ESP, tolerance for closeness and Liminal Orientation. Subliminal response was expected to vary in terms of Need for Structure, Need for Cognition, Liminal Orientation and Boredom Proneness. All relationships were expected to be stronger when mood had been manipulated to be more positive. Study two distinguished between pictures with human and non-human content.
Results for Study one found no overall MEE. Mood was influenced by the subliminal message. ESP response was significantly predicted by all 3 facets of openness, belief that ESP is possible, creativity, liminal orientation, tolerance of closeness, anxious vulnerability and need for structure. The strongest independent relationships were with a combined variable consisting of openness to fantasy, tolerance for merger, and (-) vulnerability. Subliminal response was predicted by Need for Cognition, Liminal Orientation and (-)Boredom Proneness. Only Liminal Orientation was independently predictive. Relationships were stronger when Ps had been induced to be in a positive mood, particularly with ESP.
In Study two, the extrasensory presentation of the mood-manipulation was not successful in affecting mood, so naturally-occurring mood was used instead. The composite variable intended to predict ESP response did so significantly. However, Liminal Orientation did not significantly predict subliminal response. As predicted, all relationships with ESP were stronger when mood was positive and when the target content was human. These things did not influence subliminal response.

Title:
ESP contributes to the unconscious formation of a preference
Publication year: 2009
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
This study is carried out as a test of some basic ideas drawn from first sight theory (FST). Some of the main ideas being tested include the assumption that extrasensory information has a part to play in the formation of all experience in a continuous, implicit, unconscious way. First sight theory also proposes that experience is created by unconsciously sampling all sources of potential information holistically, including psi information, and that all of these sources of information are treated in similar ways. And it also proposes that valuing the extrasensory domain of information, openness toward and interest in inward experience of the inadvertent sort that most implies unconscious processing (called liminal experience), being relatively free of fear, and being open to intimate communication with other people, also predispose one to make positive access to psi information.
The esthetic experience of preference is chosen as an everyday form of experience for study in terms of these propositions. Considerable research has demonstrated a tendency for persons to experience greater liking or attraction for things as a function of having been exposed to them previously. This is called the Mere Exposure Effect (MEE). This is often demonstrated especially strongly if the exposures are implicit, subliminally presented, and never available to awareness. The assumption is made here that
an extrasensory MEE should obtain as readily as a subliminal one, and this study attempted to induce both in its participants.
Participants also responded to a number of psychological tests used here to assess aspects of unconscious motivation or intention. We measured whether or not one thinks ESP is possible in such situations, different aspects of openness to inner experience, tolerance of ambiguity, tolerance for interpersonal intimacy, creativity and fearfulness because FST predicts that each of these should relate to the utilization of extrasensory information. We also assessed the Need for Cognition, the Need for Structure, and Boredom-Proneness because these have been found to moderate the subliminal MEE.
Finally, we used a subliminal, implicit means to induce two different moods in our participants. Half were exposed to a stimulus aimed at enhancing a mood of symbiotic security and well-being, and consequent openness toward the situation, while the other half were exposed to a stimulus intended to evoke a mood of relative isolation, constriction and vigilance.
Participants were subliminally exposed to a series of pictures, the mood manipulations, and a series of ESP targets (different pictures that were totally covered by an opaque block, such that they would convey no information even if seen supraliminally), in order to effect mood and induce the MEEs.
We expected to find an overall subliminal MEE but did not, and expected that participants would show similar directions of functioning in their subliminal and extrasensory MEEs, but they did not. We did find a number of predicted relationships with the motivational, attitudinal variables, particularly in the case of the extrasensory MEE, and particularly in the context of the induction of the open, positive mood. Discussion focuses on the development of a greater understanding of unconscious thought and how extrasensory information contributes to it.

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.
