Evolving Images for Visual Neurons Using a Deep Generative Network Reveals Coding Principles and Neuronal Preferences: Cell
Using some specific monkey neurons that are in a cluster near the ears as a replacement for the discriminator in a GAN deep learning setup, these biology/neurology researchers effectively were able to ask the cells directly what visually interested them.

Researches find poop-throwing by chimps is a sign of intelligence
So the takeaway is roughly the smartest monkeys are the ones that not only fling poop (a lot), but fling ACCURATELY, a reflection of fine muscle control and trajectory calculation capability which nominally require a better brain.
