Laura R. Ment, MD, is a pediatric neurologist specializing in brain injuries in term newborns and premature babies. She also treats neurological problems in infants and young children, including developmental delays, seizures and epilepsy. Dr. Ment leads a team that uses state-of-the-art imaging to investigate injury and recovery in the developing brain.

A professor of pediatrics (neurology) and an associate dean of Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Ment says she has “the best job in the medical school” because she is able to care for infants and children with neurological problems. “As an intern, I fell in love with premature infants and imaging, and I have been fortunate to work in this field at Yale for my entire career,” she says.
