The NeuralFieldSimulator considers scalar spatially homogeneous neural fields taking into account finite axonal transmission speed and synaptic temporal derivatives of first and second order. A text-based interface offers complete control of field parameters and several approaches are used to accelerate simulations. A graphical output utilizes video hardware acceleration to display running output with reduced computational cost compared to exclusively software-based simulators. Diverse applications of simulations include breather oscillations, static and dynamic Turing patterns and activity spreading with finite propagation speed.

Neural Field Simulator

The Neural Field Simulator computes activity numerically in
2-dimensional neural fields by solving integral-differential equations
involving transmission delays and visualizes the spatio-temporal
activity.

To use the simulator please see the documentation in this archive
