Note the centrally directed neural process connected with the lateral polysegmental fibre bundle. (e, f) GABA-IR neurons with various soma size and shape from the posterior part of the ganglion. bv: blood vessel; bw: body wall; mg: midgut; sn: 2nd segmental nerve; arrowheads: lateral polysegmental fibre bundles; double arrowheads: medial polysegmental fibre bundles; open arrowhead: contralateral axon of a giant motoneuron; arrows: incoming sensory fibres in the 2nd segmental nerves, asterisks: lateral giant axon.

In earthworms, characterized by a more intensive locomotion than freshwater oligochaetes, the reflex centre in each segment, namely the ventral cord ganglion, needs more effective neural activity. Their interneurons and motoneurons are affected by a higher number of inhibitory neurons. The facts that GABAergic polysegmental interneuronal fibre bundles (i) came from the suboesophageal ganglion, thought to be the highest motor centre of oligochaete CNS (Dorsett, 1978) and (ii) they run in close to the dorsal giant axons, possibly making numerous synaptic contacts with their collaterals in the neuropile, convey the suggestion that these polysegmental interneuronal tracts have an inhibitory influence on the activity of the dorsal giant axons.

In conclusion, this study demonstrates not only the presence of GABA as an inhibitory transmitter in certain neural structures of L. hoffmeisteri, but also it presented detailed three-dimensional organization of all labelled neurons and neural processes in the whole CNS and in some parts of PNS. Our results show that GABA acts as a common neurotransmitter in certain sensory and motor neurons and interneurons. Furthermore, the basic pattern of labelled structures is the same in the tubificid worm, L.
