In previous work the jth automaton of a system of interactive automata was treated as a black box containing a stimulus processor that received stimuli and produced responses. Here the automaton is broken down into greater structural detail, making the receptors and effectors distinguishable from the stimulus processor. The sets of stimuli and triadic responses remain observed sets over a moment base. The sets of receptors and effectors are described by dyadic relations on the sets of principal and auxiliary receptors and effectors. Modifications to the equations and functions are made, and summaries of the graph primitives for the processor, environment, and time graphs are presented reflecting these modifications. The results of this analysis has been required in the formulation of a language information theory, and the manner of importance is illustrated by an example sentence.
