French term or phrase: rétro alimentation
Bonjour,

Je dois traduire des cours du français vers l'anglais et un mot me pose problème. Je ne sais pas du tout comment le traduire sans faire d'erreur.

le mot "rétro alimentation" que je dois traduire est dans la phrase suivante :

"La régulation de la sécrétion hormonale se fait par rétro alimentation négative"

Auriez-vous une petite idée svp ?

Merci d'avance de votre aide précieuse.

Negative feedback is a regulatory mechanism in which a 'stimulus' causes an opposite 'output' in order to maintain an ideal level of whatever is being regulated. Negative feedback loops occur in a series of steps. You have a stimulus, in which a change occurs.
