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:
Most mothers had a moderate to high bonding toward the infant from pregnancy
to 3 months after childbirth, nonetheless maternal bonding was generally better
immediately after childbirth - higher positive bonding and total bonding means and
lower negative bonding scores - than during pregnancy or at 3 months postpartum.
During pregnancy, mood but not hormones influenced maternal bonding. Mothers
with depressive mood had lower positive bonding results, higher negative bonding
results as well as higher not clear bonding results. Mothers with higher anxiety levels
had less positive bonding results, more negative bonding results and showed a worse
total bonding.
In the first days after childbirth, both mood and hormones influenced maternal
bonding. Mothers with higher cortisol levels had a better bonding toward the infant,
mothers with depressive mood had lower positive bonding results and mothers with
higher anxiety levels had more negative bonding results.
At 3 months after childbirth, again mood but not hormones influenced maternal
bonding. Depressed mothers showed more negative emotions and not clear emotions
and had a worse bonding toward the infant, as well as mothers with higher anxiety
showed more negative bonding results and more not clear bonding results and a worse
bonding with the infant. No differences are found regarding cortisol levels.
We conclude that psycho-physiological more than obstetrical factors seem to interfere
in maternal bonding both during pregnancy and after childbirth. This fact leads us to
think about the importance of attending to maternal mood in clinical context starting
during pregnancy through the first months after childbirth in order to guarantee the
mothers’ and infants’ quality of life.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A depressão pós-parto é uma patologia que ocorre nas primeiras semanas após o parto com conseqüências negativas não só para a mãe, como também para o bebê e para a família. Objetivo: Examinar a prevalência de depressão após o parto, bem como as circunstâncias suscetíveis de predizer a sintomatologia depressiva 1 semana e 3 meses após o parto. Métodos: 197 grávidas preencheram o Questionário de Antecipação do Parto (QAP) (Costa et al., 2005a) no segundo trimestre de gestação. Na primeira semana após o parto, responderam ao Questionário de Experiência e Satisfação com o Parto (QESP) (Costa et al., 2005b) e à Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) (Augusto et al., 1996), esta última aplicada novamente no terceiro mês do puerpério. Resultados: Uma percentagem significativa de mulheres encontra-se clinicamente deprimida (EPDS = 13) na primeira semana e 3 meses após o parto (12,4% e 13,7%, respectivamente). Das que têm EPDS = 13 na primeira semana, 25% estão ainda deprimidas 3 meses após o parto. Circunstâncias relativas à saúde física, à experiência emocional de parto e ao primeiro contato com o bebê predizem a sintomatologia depressiva na primeira semana do puerpério. A sintomatologia depressiva na primeira semana após o parto e a experiência emocional negativa de parto predizem a sintomatologia depressiva 3 meses após o parto. Conclusões: Constata-se a importância da experiência emocional de parto e do primeiro contato com o bebê, enfatizando a necessidade de atender às necessidades psicológicas da mulher.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
With the aim of studying anxiety, depression and prenatal emotional involvement with the infant, 87 primiparous women had fulfilled the Portuguese version of the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale, State-Trait Anxiety Inventory and New Mother-to-Infant Bonding Scale. High levels of anxious and depressive symptoms as well of emotional involvement with the infant were found. Anxiety seems to activate mother’s negative emotions toward the infant, but depressive symptoms account the more for the presence of not clear emotions and poor attachment to the infant.

Adverse effects of maternal anxiety and depression are well documented, namely on the foetus/child behaviour and development, but not as much attention has been given to the mother's emotional involvement with the offspring. To study mother's prenatal and postpartum stress, mood and emotional involvement with the infant, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale and the Mother-to-Infant Bonding Scale were filled in and cortisol levels were measured, 3 months before and 3 months after childbirth, in a sample of 91 Portuguese women. From pregnancy to the postpartum period, mother's cortisol levels, anxiety and emotional involvement toward the child decrease. No significant change was observed regarding mother's depression. Mother's depression predicted a worse emotional involvement before childbirth, while mother's anxiety predicted a worse emotional involvement with the infant after childbirth. Additionally, pregnant women with a worse emotional involvement with the offspring are at risk of poorer emotional involvement with the infant and higher anxiety and depression at 3 months postpartum. It should be given more attention to mother's poor emotional involvement with the offspring during pregnancy, as it interferes with her emotional involvement with the infant and her psychological adjustment 3 months after childbirth.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
(Note: The current project produced a relatively large amount of data; the results reported next constitute the ones the investigators consider most relevant.)
Animal studies have been documenting the association between hormonal changes and the emergence of parental behavior in both males and females of a variety of species. Human data have been very scarce, but findings of three previous studies showed that hormone levels of human fathers can change during the reproductive period. The results of the current project constitute a step forward in the study of the psychoendocrinology of parental behavior, by indicating that hormone changes experienced by men during their partner’s pregnancy associate to the expression of paternal involvement after the birth. Thus, fathers who presented higher levels of paternal behavior after the birth (HIF, high-involvement fathers), but not less involved fathers (LIF), were found to have increased levels of Progesterone, Estradiol and Testosterone during pregnancy comparing to postpartum hormone levels and to hormone levels of controls; in addition, Prolactin levels were found to be increased from pregnancy to postpartum in HIF, but not in LIF, whereas Cortisol levels were found to be elevated after the birth in LIF only. These results are generally consistent with previous findings on the neuroendocrinology of paternal behavior in mammals, and add support to the hypothesis that in bi-parental mammals, including humans, the expression of paternal and maternal behavior involve homologous neuroendocrine mechanisms. These findings can contribute to ‘validate’ the experience of more parentally motivated men, as well as to inform about conditions in which pro-social behavior, including parental investment, is compromised.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The maternal and the paternal forms of the Antenatal Emotional Attachment Scale (AEAS; J.T. Condon, 1993) were adapted for use with Portuguese expectant parents. Both Portuguese forms of the AEAS have a good level of internal consistenc y and test-retest stability. We also analysed the association of the scores in AEAS with time of gestation, age, parental experience, marital adjustment, maternal depression and paternal involvement after the birth. The results are not counter-intuitive and are in line with previous research. In general, the results indicate that the Portuguese forms of the AEAS are reliable and valid measures of prenatal attachment. However, this study does not support the multidimensional model presented by Condon and suggests, instead, that prenatal attachment as measured by the AEAS is unidimensional.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The Parental Stress Inventory (PSI; D.J. Terry, 1991) was adapted for use with Portuguese parents. In general, the results indicate that the Portuguese version of the PSI is a reliable and valid instrument to measure parental stress in the post-partum period. The Portuguese PSI has a high level of internal consistency (a=0,862). It was further observed that maternal and paternal scores correlate positively to each other and to measures of depression and anxiety, and negatively to measures of marital adjustment and paternal involvement.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
Animal studies have been documenting the association between hormonal changes and the emergence of parental behavior in both males and females of a variety of non-human species. Data on the psychoendocrinology of human parental behavior is very scarce, but preliminary findings by Storey et al. (2000), Berg and Wynne-Edwards (2001; 2002) and Fleming et al. (2002) showed that hormone levels of human fathers can change during the reproductive period. None of these pioneering studies, however, analyzed if hormone changes in expectant fathers associate with the expression of paternal behavior after birth.
METHOD:
In this study, serum levels of prolactin (PRL) and salivary levels of testosterone (T), progesterone (P), estradiol (E2) and cortisol (CORT) were measured five times throughout the reproductive period (three times during pregnancy and two times after the birth) in an initial sample of 32 expectant fathers (EF). Hormone levels of 15 control men (C) were also measured at same time intervals. In addition, paternal behavior after the birth was evaluated in EF with psychometric measures.
RESULTS:
Fathers who presented higher levels of paternal behavior after the birth (HIF, high-involvement fathers), but not less involved fathers (LIF), showed increased levels of P and E2 during pregnancy comparing to postpartum hormone levels and to hormone levels of controls. In addition, PRL levels increased from the pregnancy to the postpartum period in HIF, but not in LIF, whereas CORT levels were significantly increased following the birth in LIF only. Finally, though T levels were high during pregnancy and low after the birth for
all fathers, changes in T were more pronounced in HIF.
DISCUSSION:
Results are generally consistent with previous findings on the neuroendocrinology of paternal behavior in mammals, and add support to the hypothesis that in bi-parental mammals, including humans, the expression of paternal and maternal behavior involve homologous neuroendocrine mechanisms. Research in this area can contribute to ‘validate’ the experience of more involved fathers and to inform about conditions in which pro-social behavior, including parental investment, is compromised.

Anxiety and depression symptoms among pregnant women with different smoking habits
Publication year: 2019
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Smoking during pregnancy is a major public health issue. The aim of this study isto describe the smoking habits of women during pregnancy and its association with clinically significant depressive and anxiety symptoms. 382 women answered to a socio-demographic questionnaire, the Hospital Anxiety Depression Scale (HADS) and the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) at 33 weeks of gestation. Among pregnant woman, 284 are non-smokers, 38 are smokers and 60 quitted smoking during pregnancy. There was a significant association between maternal smoking status and marital status, education level and family income per month. Among smokers, the rate of quitters was quite similar among partnered and unpartnered women and higher in women with university degree and with higher family monthly income. There was a significant association between maternal smoking status and clinically significant anxious symptoms [chi 2(2)=8.535, p=0.014]. Among mothers with non-university education, smokers are more likely to have clinically significant anxiety symptoms than quitters (53.6% vs 24.3%) while among mothers in higher income families, smokers are more likely to have clinically significant depressive symptoms than quitters (100% vs 11.1%). This study provides important data to inform effective public health strategies directed to pregnant women.

The role of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3PUFAs) in affective disorders
Publication year: 2016
URL:
http://www.jad-journal.com/article/S0165-0327(16)32323-0/fulltext
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Among emerging treatments for depressive disorders several studies suggested that n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3PUFAs) supplementation can be used. However, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) differ in terms of biochemistry, metabolism and therapeutic effects. Therefore, a clear picture of their specific and different role on affective disorders has not yet emerged.
OBJECTIVES:
To investigate the effects of n-3PUFAs on affective disorders including major depression, bipolar disorder and perinatal depression.
METHODS:
A comprehensive search on PUBMED, Medline and PsychINFO of all RCTs using n-3PUFAs patients with depressive symptoms published up to April 2016 was performed. We included trials that examined unipolar or bipolar disorder and trials that investigated depressive symptoms in relation to pregnancy. Trials were excluded if the depressive symptomatology was related to other primary organic diseases.
RESULTS:
264 RCT studies were identified but only 36 met the inclusion criteria. First, it has been reported that n-3PUFAs supplementation might have clinical benefits on depressive symptoms. Second, EPA supplement, rather than DHA, seems to be more effective in treating major depression. Third, n-3PUFAs can have beneficial effects in bipolar depression but not in perinatal depression.
CONCLUSIONS:
There are only some evidence on the efficacy of n-3PUFAs in affective disorders especially to unipolar and bipolar depression not powered enough to confirm a therapeutic effect for affective disorder. Therefore, further studies with larger and more homogeneous samples, are required to confirm these effects.

Prenatal neural responses to infant faces predict postpartum reflective functioning
Publication year: 2018

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0163638318301000?via%3Dihub
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Pregnancy is shaped by unfolding psychological and biological changes in preparation for parenthood. A growing literature has examined the postpartum maternal brain. However, few studies examine the maternal brain during pregnancy, and whether brain function in pregnancy may have implications for postpartum caregiving. Using event-related potentials, we examined the late positive potential (LPP) elicited by infant distress and neutral faces in 35 women during their third trimester of pregnancy. Then, at 3 months postpartum, mothers completed a measure of parental reflective functioning to capture how they regarded their capacity to consider their child's thoughts and feelings. We found that in the third trimester, infant distress faces elicited larger LPPs compared to infant neutral faces. Moreover, the LPP elicited by infant neutral faces predicted levels of postpartum reflective functioning. Specifically, a larger LPP elicited by neutral infant faces predicted greater maternal self-reported difficulty recognizing and understanding their own infant's thoughts and feelings. Our findings suggest that studying the pregnant brain may have predictive value for facets of postpartum caregiving and may inform clinical interventions with new mothers.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Our ability to maintain a coherent bodily self despite continuous changes within and outside our body relies on the highly flexible multisensory representation of the body, and of the space surrounding it: the peripersonal space (PPS). The aim of our study was to investigate whether during pregnancy - when extremely rapid changes in body size and shape occur - a likewise rapid plastic reorganization of the neural representation of the PPS occurs. We used an audio-tactile integration task to measure the PPS boundary at different stages of pregnancy. We found that in the second trimester of pregnancy and postpartum women did not show differences in their PPS size as compared to the control group (non-pregnant women). However, in the third trimester the PPS was larger than the controls' PPS and the shift between representation of near and far space was more gradual. We therefore conclude that during pregnancy the brain adapts to the sudden bodily changes, by expanding the representation of the space around the body. This may represent a mechanism to protect the vulnerable abdomen from injury from surrounding objects.

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT
BACKGROUND
The space immediately surrounding our body – i.e. ‘peripersonal space’ (PPS; Rizzolatti et al., 1997) - is important, as it is where we interact with stimuli in the external world. Recent studies have shown that the PPS boundaries are malleable. For example, it has been found that being in proximity to an individual we have previously co-operated with induces an expansion of our PPS towards that person.
AIMS
With our study we aimed at investigating whether the PPS changes during pregnancy, a critical stage in life, when extremely rapid changes occur in the body size and shape. As pregnancy advances, the PPS should expand, reflecting an updated mental representation of one’s body that makes external stimuli, initially perceived as being outside of the PPS, to be perceived closer, within the PPS.
METHODS
To this aim, we tested 37 pregnant women and 19 non-pregnant women three times: at the 20th and at 34th week of the gestational period and 8 weeks postpartum (and at the same time intervals in the control group). To assess the PPS boundaries we used a well-established audiotactile task (Canzoneri et al., 2012) whereby participants’ reaction times (RTs) to a tactile stimulus on the abdomen, were measured while listening to a dynamic sound that seems to start at a location far from the participant and progressively approach the participant’s body. When touches occurred at short temporal delays the sound was perceived far and gradually closer to the participant’s body as the delays increase. As sounds facilitate tactile RTs only when presented close to the body (Serino et al., 2007), we expected RTs to progressively decrease as the sound was approaching. The critical distance where the sound speeds up tactile RTs can be taken as a proxy of the PPS boundary.
RESULTS
By comparing this critical distance across the three time periods we found that whereas at the first and the third testing period no differences in the PPS size were observed between the groups, in the second period, the pregnant participants’ PPS was larger than the controls’.
CONCLUSIONS
We conclude that during pregnancy our brain adapts to the sudden change in body size, by expanding the representation of the space around us, possibly in order to protect the vulnerable abdomen from bumping against objects.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Neural and psychological processes in pregnancy may be important antecedents for caregiving postpartum. Employing event-related potentials, we examined neural reactivity to infant emotional faces during the third trimester of pregnancy in expectant mothers (n = 38) and expectant fathers (n = 30). Specifically, expectant parents viewed infant distress and infant neutral faces while electroencephalography was simultaneously recorded. As a psychological measure, we assessed prenatal mind-mindedness towards the unborn child and examined whether neural processing of infant cues was associated with levels of mind-mindedness. Expectant fathers evidenced greater P300 reactivity to infant distress, relative to neutral, faces than expectant mothers. Furthermore, P300 reactivity to infant distress, relative to infant neutral, faces was associated with levels of prenatal mind-mindedness in expectant fathers but not expectant mothers. These findings indicate significant sex differences in the prenatal neural processing of infant cues and relations between neural reactivity to infant distress and the emergence of parental mind-mindedness.

Women's perinatal depression: Anhedonia-related symptoms have increased in the COVID-19 pandemic
Publication year: 2023
URL:
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0163834323001044?via%3Dihub
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Background
The prevalence of perinatal depression increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, which may be due to changes in the profile of specific depressive symptoms.
Aims
To analyze the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the (1) prevalence and severity of specific depressive symptoms; and on the (2) prevalence of clinically significant symptoms of depression during pregnancy and postpartum.
Methods
Pregnant and postpartum women recruited before (n = 2395) and during the COVID-19 pandemic (n = 1396) completed a sociodemographic and obstetric questionnaire and the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS). For each item, scores =1 and = 2 were used to calculate the prevalence and severity of depressive symptoms, respectively.
Results
The prevalence and severity of symptoms of depression were significantly higher during the COVID-19 pandemic. The prevalence of specific symptoms increased by >30%, namely “being able to laugh and see the funny side of things” (pregnancy 32.6%, postpartum 40.6%), “looking forward with enjoyment to things” (pregnancy 37.2%, postpartum 47.2%); and “feelings of sadness/miserable” or “unhappiness leading to crying” during postpartum (34.2% and 30.2%, respectively). A substantial increase was observed in the severity of specific symptoms related to feelings that “things have been getting on top of me” during pregnancy and the postpartum period (19.4% and 31.6%, respectively); “feeling sad or miserable” during pregnancy (10.8%); and “feeling scared/panicky” during postpartum (21.4%).
Conclusion
Special attention should be paid to anhedonia-related symptoms of perinatal depression to ensure that they are adequately managed in present and future situations of crisis.
