GeneRec is a generalization of the recirculation algorithm, and approximates Almeida-Pineda recurrent backpropagation.[1][2] It is used as part of the Leabra algorithm for error-driven learning.[3]

The symmetric, midpoint version of GeneRec is equivalent to the contrastive Hebbian learning algorithm (CHL).[1]
