Reinforcement learning for spiking neurons

I have developed a reinforcement learning rule for spiking neurons, which allows them to learn from rewards and punishments. The essential components of this rule, which has been developed trough mathematical derivations and computer simulations, have been later found by neuroscientists in the brain. Components of this learning rule were implemented in hardware in Loihi, the neuromorphic chip developed by Intel.
