As an alternative to this position, Anisman et al. (1984) suggested that exposure to inescapable shock resulted in a perseverative response style, such that animals persisted in adopting response strategies that had previously been acquired or those innate defensive strategies that were highest in their response repertoires (Szostak and Anisman, 1985). Accordingly, animals may encounter difficulty in acquiring those response-outcome associations incompatible with response styles to which they are predisposed.

For instance, Glazer and Weiss (1976a,b) reported that escape deficits were apparent in rats tested soon after briefduration, high-intensity shock but were absent 24 h later. In contrast, long-duration, moderate-intensity shock provoked long-term shuttle deficits, but curiously no such disturbance was evident soon after the inescapable shock session, Likewise, in mice, Anisman et al. (1978) reported that escape deficits became more pronounced over the X-h period following exposure to moderate severity shock It was suggested (Glazer and Weiss 1976a,b) that two forms of the escape interference may have existed.
