Kinda a simple question. When, for example, ADH is released and water is reabsorbed, where does this "reabsorbed" water go? Does it go to the vasa recta surrounding the nephron?

I think so, based on this picture here (not too sure how accurate it is though:


If not the vasa recta, then I'm sure into the capillaries that feed into the cells of the medulla.
EDIT: It's by Pearson I just saw! Lol it should be accurate then (if not then the validity of my whole bio series would be questioned :dead: ) Hope this helps! :)

Ah yes this is what I thought. Thanks for the picture!
