Athanasios Drigas, Athanasia Dourou


This is a review paper which examines the exploitation of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for cognitive deficits and more precisely for memory deficits. Several research papers which related to computerized techniques and developed applications for short or long term memory were chosen. In addition it is assessed in several presented papers of how helpful these techniques and applications prove to be for people with such deficits. This kind of assistance and intervention focuses on human-computer interaction and on its positive results in the development of linguistic or social skills and personal relationships. This review, points out certain technological breakthroughs of several researchers from the Global Scientific Society that assist adults and children with memory deficits.
