This article focuses on the exponential synchronization problem of T-S fuzzy reaction-diffusion neural networks (RDNNs) with additive time-varying delays (ATVDs). Two control strategies, namely, fuzzy time sampled-data control and fuzzy time-space sampled-data control are newly proposed. Compared with some existing control schemes, the two fuzzy sampled-data control schemes cannot only tolerate some uncertainties but also save the limited communication resources for the considered systems. A new fuzzy-dependent adjustable matrix inequality technique is proposed. According to different fuzzy plant and controller rules, different adjustable matrices are introduced. In comparison with some traditional estimation techniques with a determined constant matrix, the fuzzy-dependent adjustable matrix approach is more flexible. Then, by constructing a suitable Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional (LKF) and using the fuzzy-dependent adjustable matrix approach, new exponential synchronization criteria are derived for T-S fuzzy RDNNs with ATVDs. Meanwhile, the desired fuzzy time and time-space sampled-data control gains are obtained by solving a set of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). In the end, some simulations are presented to verify the effectiveness and superiority of the obtained theoretical results.
