concurrent feedback

concurrent feedback  

Feedback given at the same time as the action.
control

control  

The ability to determine the value of dependent variables. Complete controllability means that it is possible to move any state (of a system) to any other state during any finite interval of time by ...
control mechanism

control mechanism  

Any mechanism that regulates a biological process, such as a metabolic pathway or enzyme-controlled reaction, or that helps to maintain the internal environment (see homeostasis). See also feedback.
