Programs designed specifically to simulate nerve equations compare favorably with general purpose simulation programs in three areas. 1) The user deals directly with concepts that are familiar at the neuroscience level and is not required to translate the problem into another domain. 2) The program contains functions better suited for controlling the simulation and graphing the results of real neurophysiological problems. 3) Special methods and tricks can be used to take advantage of the structure of nerve equations to solve them much more quickly, e.g. Hines (1984) and Mascagni (1991).
