Most of the previous studies on synchrony in multiplex networks have been investigated using different types of intralayer network architectures which are either static or temporal. Effect of a temporal layer on intralayer synchrony in a multilayered network still remains elusive. In this paper, we discuss intralayer synchrony in a multiplex network consisting of static and temporal layers and how a temporal layer influences other static layers to enhance synchrony simultaneously. We analytically derive local stability conditions for intralayer synchrony based on the master stability function approach. The analytically derived results are illustrated by numerical simulations on up to five-layers multiplex networks with the paradigmatic Lorenz system as the node dynamics in each individual layer.
