    I was actually looking for an answer to this too, only to realise that I'm actually sitting in front of a Biology Dictionary:

    Feedback: The use of the output of a system to control its performance. In POSITIVE FEEDBACK, the output is used to enhance the input; in NEGATIVE FEEDBACK, the output is used to reduce the input.

    (From Oxford Dictionary of Biology, sixth edition)
