Spiking neural network (SNN) plays an essential role in classification problems. Although there are many models of SNN, Evolving Spiking Neural Network (ESNN) is widely used in many recent research works. Evolutionary algorithms, mainly differential evolution (DE) have been used for enhancing ESNN algorithm. However, many realworld optimization problems include several contradictory objectives. Rather than single optimization, Multi-Objective Optimization (MOO) can be utilized as a set of optimal solutions to solve these problems. In this paper, Harmony Search (HS) and memetic approach was used to improve the performance of MOO with ESNN. Consequently, Memetic Harmony Search Multi-Objective Differential Evolution with Evolving Spiking Neural Network (MEHSMODEESNN) was applied to improve ESNN structure and accuracy rates. Standard data sets from the UCI machine learning are used for evaluating the performance of this enhanced multi objective hybrid model. The experimental results have proved that the Memetic Harmony Search Multi-Objective Differential Evolution with Evolving Spiking Neural Network (MEHSMODE-ESNN) gives better results in terms of accuracy and network structure.
