When tagging a question I was going to chose - using the 'ology' as previously discussed but is the preferred choice at present.

Would anyone object to renaming neuroscience to neurology to avoid having a 'special case'?

Neuroscience is a far more general term, and probably the best one to use for tagging. Neurology is about disorders of the nervous system, while neuroscience is the study of the nervous system.

I'd say that neuroscience is at the correct level for tagging, and that we don't need a neurology tag so far.
