We introduce an integral model of a two-dimensional neural field that includes a third dimension representing space along a dendritic tree that can incorporate realistic patterns of axo-dendritic connectivity. For natural choices of this connectivity we show how to construct an equivalent brainwave partial differential equation that allows for effcient numerical simulation of the model. This is used to highlight the effects that passive dendritic properties can have on the speed and shape of large scale traveling cortical waves.
