About Mandy Maguire


My research integrates three different areas of psychology: neurocognitive development, language acquisition and conceptual development. I am currently investigating the neurological correlates of children's understanding of complex words (love, hate, freedom, heaven) and how these change with development. Further I am interested in the development of verb concepts, which generally are more abstract and difficult than noun concepts, using electrophysiological measures, specifically Event Related Potentials or ERPs.
