A kind of delay neural network with n elements is considered. By analyzing the distribution of the eigenvalues, a bifurcation set is given in an appropriate parameter space. Then by using the theory of equivariant
Hopf bifurcations of ordinary differential equations due to Golubitsky et al. (1988) and delay differential equations due to Wu (1998), and combining the normal
form theory of functional differential equations due to Faria and Magalhaes (1995), the equivariant Hopf bifurcation is completely analyzed.
