Biography

Dr. Mandy Maguire utilizes electrophysiological and behavioral methods to study language and cognitive development. Her recent work focuses on studying how a childhood in a low income environment might impact brain and language development, specifically related to word learning and vocabulary growth. Dr. Maguire uses new analysis techniques for EEG data — such as time frequency and coherence analyses — to address theoretical questions related to language processing, acquisition and development. Dr. Maguire earned her bachelor’s from Pennsylvania State University and her PhD from Temple University.
