Project summary

Dina received a BMus in Performing Arts from the Jerusalem (Rubin) Academy of Music and Dance, and a PhD in Neuroinformatics from the University of Edinburgh. She held two independent postdoctoral Fellowships at the University of Cambridge (Psychiatry Department and St Catharine’s College) and holds an honorary Assistant Professorship in Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Dina took a three-year career break to raise her young family before commencing her current research programme, which aims to understand the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive and emotional responses to music. These experiments hope to increase our understanding of how circuits dynamically reorganise in different emotional settings.
