Abstract : Neural Fields describe the spatio-temporal dynamics of neural populations involving spatial axonal connections between neurons. These neuronal connections are delayed due to the finite axonal transmission speeds along the fibers inducing a distance-dependent delay between two spatial locations. The numerical simulation in 1-dimensional neural fields is numerically demanding but may be performed in a reasonable run time by implementing standard numerical techniques. However 2-dimensional neural fields demand a more sophisticated numerical technique to simulate solutions in a reasonable time. The work presented shows a recently developed numerical iteration scheme that allows to speed up standard implementations by a factor 10-20. Applications to some pattern forming systems illustrate the power of the technique.
