MILLER-MOWRER SHUTTLEBOX

is a piece of apparatus which is used to examine escape and avoidance learning consisting of a straight alley with a guillotine door at the midpoint and a grid floor which can be electrified. The experimental animal must navigate to the 'safe' part of the box.

MILLER-MOWRER SHUTTLEBOX: "The Miller-Mowrer shuttle box is a piece of apparatus which delivers a shock to the creature placed inside if they hit the electrified midfield else protects them if they manage to navigate through the guillotine door."
