Thanks in advance,

doc yyaxis
if you are using R2016a or later.
doc plotyy
if not. With these you can define the left and right axes and use ylim on each to change where your data sits. Whether you can achieve the plot you have there I'm not sure though. I've never needed to use these myself so I'm not too familiar with how far you can manipulate them.
You could just do it with 2 axes that you manually position to be immediately above/below each other and remove all x ticks from the top one and then use
doc linkaxes
to link the x limits of the two axes so they zoom together etc.

That is what yyaxis and plotyy do. Whether they do it like the picture or not is debatable, but you can't perfectly recreate a plot from somewhere totally different.
