Dear Valeria,

Try adding at=c(-1, 0, 1, 5, 10) or wherever you would like axis marks.

You also might want to play around with the 'efac' argument to decrease the length of the vertical bars at the end of the CIs. This also affects the height of the summary polygon. You could use efac=c(0,1), the first to basically suppress the vertical lines on the CIs while keeping the polygon height unaffected (or change the 1 as deemed fit).
