Comment 4 by Rtambree :

High-brow art and low-brow art are just subjective social constructions. If you like Michael Bay and Adam Sandler films, there might be no neurologically discernible difference from a film connoisseur's appreciation of Bergman or Fellini films.

The ability to APPRECIATE or feel JOY probably has no discernible neurological differences, but my guess is that what caused the choice between Fellini and Sandler most likely would reveal neurological differences.
