Amalgam is not a capacitor it can not hold charge. If it could we would use it instead of batteries. the 350mV if that number is accurate I do not know, represents a galvanic reaction between two or more metals. Depending on what the metals are a different "eddie type current" is generated. The problem is that in the human body everything generates a small potential difference which averages to zero Volts. Blood carrying iron moving through vessels passing through magnetic field of the earth will generate some type of current much higher than 350mV I would imagine. If you want to see this get a digital voltmeter hold one wire in one hand and the second wire in the other hand. You will see a potential difference that fluctuates that is all. even if you took amalgam scrap you can not attach one electrode to silver and the other to murcury in amalgam to measure this voltage the reading will be zero volts. There is no way of measuring the current in Amalgam in someone's mouth and attributing it to causing events in the brain. This whole topic is pointless at this stage on the game.
