    Question Need to know what does the brain's neurons depend on, blood and?

    1. Need to know what does the brain's neurons depend on, blood which supplies the oxygen and nutrients right and?

    2. If that, is so, then isn't it possible for a good amount of time after death to stick a blood supply line in and keep all the needed things going to them?

    The bulk the brain needs to survive indeed comes in through the circulatory system through the blood-brain barrier. If you can simulate circulation well enough AND you avoid allowing the body's decay from interfering with function, it might "keep going".
    The science of the mind is the science of what matters.
