A control system that appears to be self-regulating. Closed-loop

systems employ feedback and a reference of correctness (norm or set

point). Deviations from the norm are detected and corrections made

in order to maintain a desired state in the system. Closed loop

systems provide the homeostatic mechanism of many physiological

functions (see

and also control some movement patterns, where feedback from

proprioceptors and other receptors play an important part. Compare
