This Appendix offers a recent interview with Sydney Lamb, a key figure in the development of Relational Network Theory (RNT). With a career spanning more than sixty years, Lamb is recognized as a groundbreaking scholar in the study of language and the brain. In particular, Lamb’s 1999 book, Pathways of the Brain, is a fundamental text in RNT literature. Naturally, in subsequent presentations and publications, Lamb has introduced a number of refinements to his initial exposition. Here Lamb discusses historical, technical, and practical aspects of RNT, addressing both recent innovations and recurring queries. This interview provides a valuable perspective on the development of RNT, as viewed by a main contributor and decades-long observer, alongside insights into the disciplinary rapprochement between linguistics and cognitive neuroscience.
