Silence: To Digitally Disconnect or Not

Meet the Fighters for the third round of Digital Fight Club: Jennifer Zientz, head of clinical services at the Center for BrainHealth, versus Michelle Adams, founder and president at Marketing Brainology.

Editor’s note: Dallas Innovates is the media sponsor for Digital Fight Club on Aug. 28. Digital Fight Club is a no-holds-barred event that pits technology experts against each other in a head-to-head, rapid-fire discussion on a hot-button topic rooted in innovation. Read the story of how it came to be here.

And, before the main event at the end of the month, Founder Michael Pratt will be previewing what audience members can expect each round. Fight #3 is below.

Digitally disconnect?

This fight takes a slight turn from our normal fights. Usually, we are debating a technology’s viability or impact or it’s place in the future.

This time we are debating the use of technology in the first place. 

So, we brought two experts on polar opposite sides of the discussion. Jennifer Zientz of the Center for BrainHealth works with Navy Seals (as well as mere mortals) to address technology’s impact on brain performance, cognition, and overall health. Michelle Adams focuses on the budding field of “neuromarketing” and its beneficial uses for brands and companies. 

Settled science? We think not.
