The importance of synchronization of firing in a neuron pool is widely emphasized in many studies. In most of the computational studies concerned with the synchronization mechanism in feed-forward neural pools, only a single spike (first spike) of each neuron is analyzed. In this paper we argue that a more realistic setting is when each neuron fires multiply. It is shown that unlike the simple case of single firings for each neuron, in the more realistic condition, the synchronization of firings in successive pools of leaky integrate and fire neurons is impossible. We have confirmed this through the results of our simulation as well as analytic results. Finally we present two possibilities in order to explain the physiological experiments where presence of synchronization is evident
