There are other studies that don't specifically say anything about RNA, but have shown the ability for isolated individual purkinje cells to learn temporal sequences, which means our biology is using multiple methods for learning.
Note: this is all distinct from the "normal" learning process that includes epigenetic changes to produce proteins that maintain the synapse.
