Is there a learning algorithm in nengo-bio?

Hello everyone. I tried to build my own model using nengo-bio, but I found that there is no learning algorithm similar to PES or BCM in bio.Connection. Is there a learning algorithm in nengo-bio? Is there such an example?

As far as I am aware, nengo-bio does not currently support learning. @astoecke is the lead developer of nengo-bio, and perhaps he can elaborate further.

@xchoo is right, learning is currently not implemented in nengo-bio. The problem is that it is not clear at all what the correct way to do learning in a split excitatory/inhibitory connection is. Figuring this out would be a research project on its own. While delving into this is definitively on my list of things to do in the future, I, unfortunately, don’t have the time to look into this at the moment.

My advice would be to use a standard nengo connection for the parts of your model that require learning.
