How Does Mercury Affect the Brain? Lab Investigation
Model the Flow of Toxins through an Ecosystem!
Research-Based & Developed with Support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
With this hands-on lab investigation, students learn about the effects of mercury poisoning on the brain, they then model the flow of toxins and energy through an ecosystem's food chains and food webs and develop the concept of biological magnification for environmental toxins.
