integrating the symbolic normcdf

Hi,

Is there a way to solve the following definite integral? My integrand is symbolic:

myintegrand = @(x) x*normcdf(x,1,0);
int(myintegrand,x,0,1)

Matlab says:
Warning: Explicit integral could not be found.
ans =
int(x*normcdf(x, 1, 0), x = 0..1)

Basically, it does not give me an answer. I also tried "erfc" with no luck.

Thank you,

A.
