We investigate the lag synchronization of coupled neural networks with time delay. Some sufficient conditions for lag synchronization will be derived by using Lyapunov stability theory and intermittent control. Compared to existing results, some less conservative conditions are derived to guarantee the stabilization of error system. The analytical results are confirmed by numerical simulations.
