“Structural Correlation between Apomorphine and LSD: Involvement of Dopamine as Well as Serotonin in the Actions of Hallucinogens”. 
J. Theor. Biol.. 1976;59:167-177.
It is suggested that the action of LSD and other hallucinogens depends, not only on stimulation Of serotonin receptors, but also on stimulation of central dopamine receptors. Both pharmacological and structural-chemical evidence is presented to support the latter hypothesis. A structural correlation is also demonstrated between LSD and apomorphine, and the probable dopaminergic element in LSD is discussed.
