In this paper, generalized outer synchronization between two different stochastic coupled complex dynamical networks with time-varying delays has been investigated. A novel controller is given and the stochastic invariance principle is applied. A stochastic disturbance which is described in term of a Brownian motion are considered in complex dynamical networks. Moreover, some sufficient conditions are derived to ensure generalized outer synchronization of stochastic neural networks. Surprisingly, it is found that complex networks with different structure can be synchronized.
