Lina van Drunen is a PhD candidate at Leiden University and Erasmus University Rotterdam. She is studying individual differences in genetic and environmental effects on structural brain development. Lina wants to find out how variations in brain development are sensitive to puberty and sex. Furthermore, she aims to unravel individual differences in sensitive periods of brain development where musical capability might have heightened effects on brain plasticity. Besides feeling the rush of science, she gets her adrenaline from playing several sports and loves a bit of mind wandering after a good movie.
