...Arjun Nair; Grigor Azatian; Matthew J. McHenry ABSTRACT Larval fish use the ‘fast start’ escape response to rapidly evade the strike of a predator with a three-dimensional (3D) maneuver. Although this behavior is essential for the survival of fishes, it is not clear how its motion is controlled...
