In this paper, we mainly investigate synchronization of complex-valued neural networks (CVNNs) with time delays and impulsive effects. By using Lyapunov method and some inequality techniques, some sufficient conditions for the synchronization of CVNNs with time delays and impulsive effects are proposed. Finally, a numerical example based on small-world networks is presented to demonstrate correctness of the theoretical results.
