It's not clear what the question is here. Most psychotropic drugs mimic
the actions of endogenous neurotransmitters at certain receptor subtype
populations. For example, many "hallucinogenic" compounds act as agonists
at 5HT2 (and probably other serotonin subtype) receptors, and some also
have activity at dopamine receptor subtypes. Are you asking about the
genetics of serotonin, dopamine and other receptors?
