Research Interests:

Seth Jones is a Senior Lecturer in the biology department. He teaches two Biology classes for majors, BIO 148 and BIO 152. He is also the lab co-ordinator for the lab portion of BIO 315, Cell Biology. He is a native Kentuckian from Shepherdsville, KY.

Dr. Jones' research background is in the neurobiology of fear learning. His graduate work at Emory University focused on how the olfactory sensory system in mice changes when a previously neutral smell is associated with a threatening stimulus. As a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, he worked on establishing the relationship between learning in a mouse model of autism and neuronal branching.
