In this paper, a hybrid control strategy, variable universe adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control, is proposed to realize the chaos synchronization of two gap junction coupled FitzHugh-Nagumo (FHN) neurons under external electrical stimulation. According to the Lyapunov stability theory, the stability of the closed error system is guaranteed. The control scheme is robust to the uncertainties such as approximate error, ionic channel noise and external disturbances. Chaos synchronization are obtained by proper choice of the control parameters. The simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control method.
