Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is one of the effective treatments of epilepsy. Based on the Lyapunov stability theory combined with the method of the periodically intermittent control and adaptive control, the abnormal synchronization neural network models with high frequency oscillation are achieved with multilag synchronization in this paper. Some simple criteria are derived for the multilag synchronization of the coupled neural networks with coupling delays. The adaptive periodically intermittent control which we have obtained can cut down control cost. The sufficient conditions of this paper for abnormal neural network multilag synchronization are less conservative and can be applied in a wider area. Finally, simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy. The design of controllers and control strategy may provide a potential electrical stimulation therapy on neurological diseases caused by abnormal synchronization. And they can provide technical support for epilepsy treatment apparatus research and development.
