In one of my notes on the kidney, it says that a common misconception among students was that "the negative feedback is the converse of the corrective action"
So for example in osmoregulation, if the blood solute potential is too low, more ADH is released. But wouldn't negative feedback be the converse of this? i.e less ADH released?

Negative feedback is the process of keeping a certain level of something close to an equilibrium: when blood solute potential dips low, corrective action is taken through the release of less ADH to increase water loss, thus increasing concentration and thus raising solute potential of the blood to equilibrium, so, I'd imagine you're correct. Where does it say that more ADH is released?
