Re: [R] A plot similar to violin plot

Sorry for being ambiguous.

The data are some continuous variable (Y-axis) categorized into 3 groups (Controls, Depressed EF and Preserved EF, X-asis).

The band of dots on the plot is the data point. The density of dots and the "fatness" of the band present the frequency of a particular value in Y-axis. This property is similar to the violin plot: showing the probability density of the data at different values. Instead of showing a shape in violin plot, this plot shows the actual distribution of the data points.

Thank you.

Regards,

CH
