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.
