Initial experience with escape in the shuttle box led to enhanced panel pressing during inescapable shock in the harness and prevented interference with later responding in the shuttle box. Inescapable shock in the harness and failure to escape in the shuttle box produced interference with escape responding after a 7-day rest.

These results were interpreted as supporting a learned "helplessness" explanation of interference with escape re- sponding: Ss failed to escape shock in the shuttle box following in- escapable shock in the harness because they had learned that shock termination was independent of responding.

Overmier and Seligman have shock in the shuttle box. Moreover, if an escape or learning in a shuttle box.
