I don't have any specific information, but here is an approach you
might try: look into cerebral neurochemical lateralization. Stanley
Glick (a student of mine, long, loong ago) has done a lot of work in
this area. As I recall, he has looked chiefly at hemispheric
asymmetries of dopamine and acetylcholine, but he may have looked at
5HT also, which might be more relevant (at least to LSD).
