Robert Remez is a perceptual psychologist whose research has focused on fundamental functions that sustain spoken language. His research has examined the ability of listeners to find and to follow speech in the clear and amid other sound sources, the propensity to integrate visible and audible aspects of speech, and the facility of listeners to identify an individual from a speech sample. His laboratory has been supported by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and currently from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. His research reports have appeared in the American Psychologist, Developmental Psychology, Ear & Hearing, Journal of Experimental Psychology, Journal of Phonetics, Journal of the Acoustical Society, Memory & Cognition, Perception & Psychophysics, Psychological Review, Psychological Science, Scandinavian Journal of Psychology, Science, and Speech Communication. He is co-editor, with David Pisoni, of the Handbook of Speech Perception.
