Diagram: Negative Feedback

Negative Feedback

Negative Feedback is the tendency for systems to employ mechanisms whereby any fluctuations from a particular behavior or trajectory are 'dampened'; that is to say, divergence from a norm is hindered.

This is a default subtitle for this page.


Negative feedback in systems was studied by early systems thinkers interested in Cybernetics, and how systems can remain stable regardless of fluctuations within the environment.
