Is the brain good at what it does?

Christopher F. Chabris, an assistant professor of psychology, recently reviewed  three new books for the New York Times Sunday book review section.

Chabris joined Union in the fall of 2007. He earned his Ph.D. in psychology from Harvard University, where he was a research associate and lecturer.

Chabris and Daniel J. Simons, a psychology professor at the University of Illinois, are the authors of “The Invisible Gorilla, And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us.”

Published by Crown, the book tackles “six everyday illusions that profoundly influence our lives,” the authors write: “the illusions of attention, memory, confidence, knowledge, cause, and potential.”
