Dr. Maggie Guy

Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology, Loyola University Chicago

Ph.D., University of Tennessee, 2014

Postdoc, University of South Carolina, 2014-2017

My research interests are in the area of developmental cognitive neuroscience with an emphasis on the development of attention, information processing, and recognition memory in typically developing infants and infants at increased risk of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). My primary research aims are to define the developmental trajectory of social and nonsocial information processing in infancy, to identify neural mechanisms contributing to differences in responses to social and nonsocial stimuli, and to determine overlap and divergence within the development of information processing across infants at low and high risk for ASD.

Graduate Research Assistant

I am a first year student in the developmental psychology program at Loyola University Chicago. My research interests consist of, but are not limited to, executive functions and their neural bases, as well as how these functions affect the progression of ASD. In my free time I enjoy traveling, exploring the city of Chicago, reading and spending time with friends.
