@code{region} in their names.

Ordinary undo applies to all changes made in the current buffer. You
can also perform @dfn{selective undo}, limited to the current region
To do this, specify the region you want, then run the @code{undo}
command with a prefix argument (the value does not matter): @kbd{C-u
C-x u} or @kbd{C-u C-_}. This undoes the most recent change in the
region. To undo further changes in the same region, repeat the
@code{undo} command (no prefix argument is needed). In Transient Mark
mode (@pxref{Transient Mark}), any use of @code{undo} when there is an
active region performs selective undo; you do not need a prefix
