The left inferior frontal gyrus (LIFG) is crucially has been found to be involved in syntactic processing of various kinds. This study investigates the cortical effects of two types of syntactic processes: (i) Reconstruction in ellipsis (recovery of left-out material given by context, More people have been to Paris than [...] to Oslo), using pseudo-elliptical structures ('dead ends') as control (More people have been to Paris than I have).
