This paper considers the impulsive control of unstable neural networks with unbounded time-varying delays, where the time delays to be addressed include the unbounded discrete time-varying delay and unbounded distributed time-varying delay.By employing impulsive control theory and some analysis techniques, several sufficient conditions ensuring $\mu$-stability, including uniform stability, (global) asymptotical stability, and (global) exponential stability, are derived. It is shown that an unstable delay neural network, especially for the case of unbounded time-varying delays, can be stabilized and has $\mu$-stability via proper impulsive control strategies. Three numerical examples and their simulations are presented to demonstrate the effectivenessof the control strategy.
