We propose an extended framework of two dimensional neural field with network between distant cortical areas as a model of global brain dynamics, and the models whose geometry of the neural field changes depending on the field dynamics as a model for growing brains. As a characteristic pattern with non-local and network interactions in neural field, pulser and memory are constructed. Possible applications to quantitative measurements of cortical activities of mouse and human brain development are briefly discussed.
