I.) Critical stimulus: Such receptor activity which generates effector activity.

II.) Primary critical stimulus: a group of the critical stimuli that are "hardwired" into the system. Usually, the designer decides these stimuli to be critical, not the system decides them to be critical of the working process.

There is two appropriate way to specify the primary critical stimuli:

a.) Creating special receptors, which are sensitive to the selected stimulus. If this stimulus appears in the environment, then it counted as a critical stimulus.

b.) Applying the stimulus intensity limit rule. Let every stimulus critical, sensed by any sensors, if the stimulus intensity is over in a stimulus-specific, artificially given value. This intensity limit can be below, over or between in values.

III.) Secondary critical stimulus. Stimulus, which is not selected to be critical before “turning on” the system. The UAA directional unit selects it to be critical of the work process from the non-critical stimuli.

IV.) Stimulus route: structure, which connected to a sensor. Its role is to signal that activity.

V.) Reaction route: such stimulus route, which is connected to an effector or effectors.

To create a UAA directional unit, need to build the next work processes:

1.) We need to create a process, which builds stimulus routes starting from the active receptors.

2.) We need to create a process, which converts the stimulus routes to reaction routes when a primary critical stimulus is present.

3.) We need to create a process, which connects the stimulus routes or reaction routes to each other based at the same time or in close time activity. This connection means that one stimulus route or reaction route activity can generate activity through the connection for the connected others. This connection called association connection.

4.) We need to create processes for affirmation, forgetting, and inhibition.
Forgetting: Extinct the connections and routes which are seldom or long time used for making possibilities to build up new connections and pathways and erase the incorrect or unnecessary connections and paths.
Affirmation: the given connection or route become stronger by the repeated usage. It means that the given connection or path can effect stronger associations and effector activity, and the forgetting becomes slower.
Inhibition: The probability of the activation of the existing connection or routes become less and less when the usage of the given connection or paths is unsuccessful.

5.) Attention to the stimulus power: stronger stimulus effect stronger reactions, create stronger associations, and can go through more association connections (it can affect farther associations).

6.) The short time information storage capability: the stimulus and reaction routes remain active for a specific period after the stimulus ends.

These are the basic working principles, which are necessary to build an UAA-system, which can efficiently adapt itself, and capable of working independently in the environment.
