Plasma im familiar with. So e.g The human body is made up of an average of 8ltrs of plamsa without electric impulses from the brain haemo gases would not flow.
So on its own a plasma without a source is nothing, correct?
Not exactly. Plasma moves through the body carrying blood that is the life of the human body. The brain controls to a limited degree the pumping of the heart. The brain doesn't exactly send the synapses directly to the blood. The synapses travel through the nervous system from the brain to the heart and the rest of the bodies systems. When it sends to the heart, the heart then pumps the plasma and blood cells through the vessels. Some parts of the body doesn't need as much blood as other parts, that's why if you take blood from one part and go to another part, the number of blood cells and the amount of plasma changes. One part may have more blood cells, less plasma. Another part may have more plasma, less blood cells. Plasma basically carries the blood cells and oxygen(among other things), throughout the body. But really it's not directly affected by synapses.
