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
Mathematical theorems and experimental discoveries in 20th century physics support the concept of non-local entanglement between elementary particles. A growing body of evidence from biological science suggests that quantum entanglement can occur between large multimolecular objects such as photosynthetic molecules, microchips, and migrating birds. It is therefore conceivable that quantum entanglement occurs between human brains.
AIM
Using fMRI technology, we tested the hypothesis that non-local signaling between human brains is anatomically specific and that 1) stimulation to one person’s visual system will generate a measurable signal in the occipital lobe of another person who is sensorially, physically, and electromagnetically isolated; and 2) stimulation of one person’s somatosensory system will generate a corresponding signal in the fronto-parietal cortex in a remote person who is sensorially, physically, and electromagnetically isolated.
METHOD
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to detect changes in blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) signaling in five pairs of healthy adult volunteers that were correlated with stimulation of the visual or somatosensory system in another person located 10 meters away who was sensorially, electromagnetically, and physically isolated. To rule out false positive results, subjects’ fMRI data were compared to resting state fMRIs obtained from 138 healthy adults, which served as controls.
RESULTS
Significant increases in BOLD activity were observed in the occipital lobe of subjects whose remote partner’s visual system was activated by a black and white flickering image, but not in the fronto-parietal lobe. Significant increases in BOLD activity were observed in the fronto-parietal lobe of subjects when their remote partner rapidly tapped their index finger and thumb together.
CONCLUSIONS
The fMRI data presented here support the hypothesis of inter-brain communication that is not mediated by the five known senses and is not obliterated by electromagnetic shielding. Events in one subject’s brain are correlated with those of their remote and isolated partner. The implications of these data are that human brains can be interconnected at a distance and brain activity in one brain can cause neural events in another human’s brain.
