A physical point process generated by passing a continuous, deterministic, chaotic signal through an integrate-and-fire device is controlled using proportional feedback incorporating only the time intervals between events. This system is unique in that the mean time between events can be adjusted independent of the dynamics of the underlying chaotic system. It is found that the range of feedback parameters giving rise to control as a function of the mean firing time exhibits surprisingly
