Consider This: the Effects of Recommended Choice Feature Consideration on Brain Activity and Behavior During Consumption and Interpersonal Decisions

Moreover, we find that neural systems implicated in intrinsically motivated self-control behavior are also recruited for externally cued consideration of long-term decision outcomes.
