One group of intact cockroaches was trained to keep a leg flexed in order to avoid a shock (P group) while a yoked control group (R) received shock independent of leg position. During retesting sessions where both P and R were trained, P received less shock than R on same-day and 24 h retests but after 48 h, R was avoiding better than P.
