Abstract: The concept of cognitive prosthesis, a system developed to support and augment the cognitive
abilities of its user, is discussed, particularly in the context of users who have some form of cognitive loss
or impairment. Relevant research issues are highlighted and research systems described, particularly in the
field of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) for people with impaired communication.
