Jones' work on the structure and function of the central nervous system is distinguished by enormous breadth and scope, both intellectually and technically. He has made seminal contributions to understanding the circuitry, cellular properties, and basic organizational plans of the cerebral cortex and thalamus, their development, functional interrelationships, plasticity, and pathology. His early work laid the foundations for the understanding of cortical connectivity, and he was the first to attempt to unravel the intrinsic circuitry of the cerebral cortex using electron microscopy. His was the first modern systematic classification of cortical neurons, and in subsequent work his studies of their chemical characteristics form a basis for all subsequent studies. His book, The Thalamus, is one of the most cited publications in neuroscience. He is also a distinguished historian of Neuroscience.
