Looks like a well-written introductory column to me, although I know little about neuroaesthetics. Your quote above doesn't surprise me, however: as far as I'm concerned, the interesting questions in the philosophy of art don't really concern the so-called 'aesthetic experience' (which sounds like a useful fiction to me).

Art turns into philosophy. The notion of an “eternally contested concept” wakes up after fifty years to say hello. Love it!

To say "no one has noticed" is hardly to do justice to the incendiary and devastating reviews of Zeki and Ramachandran published several years ago by John Hyman. If Noë doesn't know of these then shame on him.
