Empirical Aesthetics profits from the research in Cognitive Neurosciences and the target article collects multiple evidence on the neurobiological basis of art and aesthetic experience in order to submit that psychological models give a new definition of the field of Psychology of Arts, if they integrate this empirical evidence with the perceptual, emotional and cognitive capacities, which are assumed to give rise to art and aesthetic experience. The opinion article raises questions about the variety of phenomena in the field, the common methodology to experimental research on cognition and aesthetics, the manifold perceptual attributes which support art and aesthetic cognition, the potential falsification of models.
