In this paper, the global exponential stability of a class of recurrent cellular neural networks with reaction-diffusion and variable time delays was studied. When neural networks contain unbounded activation functions, it may happen that equilibrium point does not exist at all. In this paper, without assuming the boundedness, monotonicity and differentiability of the active functions, the algebraic criteria ensuring existence, uniqueness and global exponential stability of the equilibrium point of neural networks are obtained.
