Jin Shin graduated from Dartmouth College in 2017 with a B.A. in neuroscience and a minor in Spanish. At Dartmouth, Jin worked as a research assistant in Dr. Paul J. Whalen’s lab, studying affective neuroscience through brain imaging, specifically fMRI. As a research assistant, Jin explored the role of the amygdala in memory and its connections with other subcortical and cortical structures in anxiety during development. For her honors thesis, she examined the neuroanatomical underpinnings of how people respond to an uncertain future. Using MRI, she tracked the involvement of brain structures in their connection to Intolerance of Uncertainty, which is closely related to anxiety. At MGH, Jin studies BDD and treatment methods, and also is involved with research of OCD treatment through CBT, BT, and TMS. She plans to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology or neuroscience after her time at MGH.
