Abstract

Due to the high rate of senescence and conditions associated with this intrinsic process, it has been necessary to carry out this research in order to determine the factors that affect the cognitive deterioration of older adults, discovering an environment of uncertainty and imprecision that supports the existence of the aforementioned cognitive decline. The research opens doors to the knowledge of new concepts and thus helps to explain this phenomenon using a non-classical logic such as neutrosophic logic with neutrosophic sets verifying the degrees of membership, non-membership and indeterminacy, the same one that helps us for making decisions through the association of reliable criteria. The neutrosophic logic was chosen for reasons of considering it a useful tool that models the way in which a decision is reached, the reliability that it provides at the time of producing results. We implement its extension in the neutrosophic cognitive maps modeling the factors with the purpose of a differential diagnosis.
