“A Comparison of Common Interatomic Distances in Serotonin and Some Hallucinogenic Drugs”. 
Pharmacology (Basel). 1973;10:28-31.
There exists a common triangular arrangement of atoms composed of two nitrogen atoms and one oxygen atom of definite interatomic distances in the indole containing hallucinogenic drugs. A similar intermolecular arrangement has been observed in the neurohumoral agent serotonin. This structural feature may be important in the binding of these drugs to the receptor site(s) involved in hallucinogenesis.
