In this paper, the dynamics of single and two electrically coupled map-based neurons under external electrical stimulation is studied. In order to realize the synchronization of two chaotic spiking neurons, a controller based on the idea of feedback linearization is proposed. The simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of this developed control method. An important feature of the feedback control is that the amplitude of control signal tends to zero as soon as the synchronization is achieved.
