Neurogenic refers to systems that formed as a result of their neurodivergence, or from a mental illness.

Neurogenic systems may or may not disclose the specific disorder or neurodivergence they have.

Neurogenic as a term does not typically include PTSD & C-PTSD, as trauma-based plurality is aptly named traumagenic; however, each system can identify however they would like. Different conditions often have their own -genic labels too, like fixagenic. For headmates in these sorts of systems, specific labels can be attached as well: parative & previme, fixkeeper, or just the general symptom holder.

Although usually adaptive, neurogenic systems can also be spontaneous (like protogenic) or created.
