     You should do a search on the Pineal gland on PubMed. Just go to Yahoo and
type in PubMed to get to the Medline site.
Serotonin is the precursor of the pineal
hormone melatonin which causes seasonal
changes in reproductive behavior. Also,
LSD blocks serotonin receptors in the brain stem to cause its hallucinogenic
effects. You should be able to find a lot of stuff about that issue.

       Feel free to email me if you need more help.
