Palmar sweating was monitored on Ss faced with shocks over which they could exert varying control. Shocks were also varied so that some Ss could escape only after receiving shock and others could avoid shock entirely. Control-no control interacted with escape-avoidance, producing peaks in sweating when Ss could not control their escape and when they could control their avoidance. The peaks may reflect more arousal in these two conditions, or they may reflect arousal which is more localized in time.
