This paper is concerned with the complete synchronization of memristive neural networks (MNNs) with time-varying delays. An event-triggered hybrid state feedback and impulsive controller is designed to save the limited system communication resources, and parameter mismatch is considered in the control design process. Based on the Lyapunov functional approach and the comparison principle for impulsive systems, a sufficient synchronization criterion is developed to derive the master MNN and response MNN. Additionally, under the event-triggered mechanism there exists a positive lower bound for inter-execution time, which implies the avoidance of Zeno behavior. Finally, a numerical example is provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed synchronization design methods.
