`lama` |
Parameter in the re-scaled beta distribution for Hill slope parameter in the sigmoidal Emax model. See reference for it use and empirical basis. |

`lamb` |
Parameter in the re-scaled beta distribution for Hill slope parameter in the sigmoidal Emax model. |

`lamsca` |
The beta prior distribution for the Hill parameter is re-scaled to have support on (0,lamsca). |

`basemu` |
A vector of prior means for the covariate regression parameters. |

`basevar` |
The prior variance-covariance matrix for the covariate regression parameters. The covariate regression parameters are apriori independent of the other dose response model parameters. |

`binary` |
Set to |

The prior distributions are based two meta-analyses of dose response described
in the references. Each parameter is independent in the prior distribution. The
E0 and Emax parameters have normal prior distributions. For binary data, these
parameters are computed on the logistic scale. The predicted ED50 must be
specified as 'P50'. The prior distribution of the log(ED50) has a t-distribution
centered at log(P50), with scale, degrees of freedom, and offset to the P50,
defaulting to values given in the references (these can be changed, but they
are difficult to interpret outside the context of the meta-analyses).
If `modType=4`

, the prior distribution for the Hill parameter
is a beta distribution scaled to
(0,lamsca). The default degrees of freedom were obtained from the
meta-analyses. For
continuous data, the prior distribution for the residual SD is uniform on a
user-specifed scale.
