Granular neural networks (GNN) are designed to process complex non-numerical data or the combination of numerical and non-numerical data. The concept of "granules" here refers to various data groups which are drawn together by the criteria of similarity or functionality. Granular neural networks are being used in areas of knowledge discovery, pattern recognition, etc. This paper carries out a comprehensive review of articles that involve a comparative study of different types of granular neural
