Summary:
The adequacy of the learned helplessness and motor activation deficit interpretations of the interference effect were tested. Artificially increasing motor activity by administration of several levels of d-amphetamine failed to attenuate the interference effect. No differential effects of drug treatment between naive animals and animals pretreated with inescapable shock were found in an activity task. Both interpretations of the interference effect would adequately explain the results.
