I would like to remove tick marks on the y-axis but not on the x-axes. And I want to remove the labels (numbers) of all ticks.

what you could do is use the set command for the axis. like
set(gca,'YTick',[]); %which will get rid of all the markings for the y axis
or
set(gca,'Yticklabel',[])
set(gca,'Xticklabel',[]) %to just get rid of the numbers but leave the ticks.

%%Remove tick labels for the X and Y axes
tickCell = {'XTickLabel',{},'YTickLabel',{}};
set(gca,tickCell{:});
