...Jacob S. Harrison; Megan L. Porter; Matthew J. McHenry; H. Eve Robinson; S. N. Patek ABSTRACT Latch-mediated spring actuation (LaMSA) is used by small organisms to produce high acceleration movements. Mathematical models predict that acceleration increases as LaMSA systems decrease in size. Adult...
