Dose Response Curve

This is a figure in which the X axis plots concentration of a drug (or some other exposure variable, harmful or beneficial) and the Y axis plots responses such as secretion of a hormone, heart beat or health outcome. It is similar to the diagrammatic representation of a production function where there is a single variable input and a single output. The standard dose-response curve has four parameters: the baseline response, the maximum response, the slope and the exposure concentration that provokes a response halfway between baseline and maximum.
