I asked a question in regards to Hemispatial Neglect, an acquired brain injury. I noticed we don't have any related tags yet as best I could tell.

Should these be generically tagged as or should they be specified as , ect?

Since we don't currently have many questions relating to brain injuries it may not be worth splitting out into traumatic/non-traumatic brain injury, and brain injury is generally assumed to be acquired brain injury (otherwise it's a defect, not an injury).

I'll just suggest a generic tag and we can watch how it grows. As a small site it's probably best to have an easy to find and apply tag.


is a nice generic term for everything injury related (cf. Journal of Neurotrauma). I don't know how much we'd get into spinal cord injury here, but it's possible, and the tag would cover that, too.

would work for all non-acquired conditions, but is more generic.

  • Congenital anomaly is a perfect fit for non-acquired "damage".
