How to differentiate, then define a variable and integrate with respect to a different variable?

Dear community,
I'd like to create a function file in which I firstly differentiate a function Psi with respect to z. After differentiation, z is defined and becomes a function of x. The result shall then be integrated with resprect to x. So, something like
How do I do it in matlab? In mudpad, maple etc. it's obviously easy but I get stuck in Matlab because firstly, my symbolic z is a variable and then a function.
Any help is very appreciated.
Kind regards

If you have an expression in MuPAD which does the differentiation then the integration, you can import it into MATLAB as a symbolic expression.
The following example page explains how to copy variables and expressions between MATLAB and MuPAD:

Yes, sure. Thanks. But I though of doing it all in one function to allow for changes in the function z(x) without doing mupad processing again.

I wrote a small example below and everything seems to work fine.
1. Define the function Psi
syms y
Psi(y) = 1 + y^2;
2. Differentiate it
dPsi = diff(Psi);
3. Define the z-function of x
syms x
z(x) = 1/x;
4. Integrate dPsi of z with respect to x
F = int(dPsi(z),x)
F =
