This paper investigates the exponential synchronization problem of some chaotic delayed neural networks based on the proposed general neural network model, which is the interconnection of a linear delayed dynamic system and a bounded static nonlinear operator, and covers several well-known neural networks, such as Hopfield neural networks, cellular neural networks (CNNs), bidirectional associative memory (BAM) networks, recurrent multilayer perceptrons (RMLPs). By virtue of Lyapunov-Krasovskii stability theory and linear matrix inequality (LMI) technique, some exponential synchronization criteria are derived. Using the drive-response concept, hybrid feedback controllers are designed to synchronize two identical chaotic neural networks based on those synchronization criteria. Finally, detailed comparisons with existing results are made and numerical simulations are carried out to demonstrate the effectiveness of the established synchronization laws.
