Se si mantengono Planarie (Dugesia lugubris) per otto giorni in una soluzione di LSD (0,02 mg/ml), si nota un aumento di RNA nella parte cefalica del soggetto rispetto ai corpi e anche rispetto alle teste dei controlli. Anche l'incorporazione di uridina triziata segue lo stesso andamento. Vengono proposte alcune ipotesi.
