Reviewing early research (1895-1975) on changes in auditory perception.

A recent study indicates that the empathogenic effects of LSD may be independent of serotonin 2A receptor activation.
Changes in structural neuroplasticity start within 24 hours, are enduring, and may not be solely dependent on 5-HT2A.

Study finds that these altered states are quite similiar.
