Fred,

I made figure 1 in a recent publication (the journal is open access) that sounds similar to your plot request.

<http://cms.frontiersin.org/content/10.3389/neuro.23/001.2010/html/fnins-04-026_HTML/images/article/image_n/fnins-04-026-g001.gif>

<http://frontiersin.org/neuroscience/neuropharmacology/paper/10.3389/neuro.23/001.2010/>

Is that like what you are after?

Since this is still about graph frustration, I have not started a new thread.
