Forced Exercise Blocks Learned Helplessness in the Cockroach (Periplaneta Americana)
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
For three consecutive days, two groups of adult female cockroaches (Periplaneta americana) (ns=10) received inescapable shock. 24 hr. later one group was exposed to 10 min. of forced exercise on a treadmill while the other group received no exercise. Both groups were then run in a shuttlebox escape task. The cockroaches exposed to forced exercise did not become helpless in the shuttlebox escape task.
