Maguire

Advantages

  • Matched pairs design as taxi drivers were matched on age and right handedness with non-taxi drivers so this reduces order effects and individual differences
  • Representative of taxi drivers

Disadvantages

  • Sample size small (16) so valid conclusions cannot be drawn in relation to structural differences in hippocampi of taxi and non-taxi drivers
  • All ppts male/right handed so results cannot be generalised to female/left-handed taxi drivers and non-taxi drivers whose hippocampal structer may be different
