By using the Lyapunov functional method, stochastic analysis, and LMI (linear matrix inequality) approach, the mean square exponential stability of an equilibrium solution of uncertain stochastic Hopfield neural networks with delayed is presented. The proposed result generalizes and improves previous work. An illustrative example is also given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed result.
