In a former paper Shannon's (undirected) transinformation content of two stochastic processes could be split in two directed parts. Here it is demonstrated how the informational exchange between single events of two processes can be measured, the so called differential transinformations adding up to the information values mentioned above. The differential transinformations are used to describe sequences of spontaneously occurring and interdependent behavioural movements of a fish. Comparison is made between correlation functions and the differential transinformations, both measuring statistical dependencies.
