Based on Neural Mechanism theory of short-term memory, a predigested model was established. It demonstrated learning, establishment and strengthening process concerning with the motor pattern domination of high-level nerve center system. According to the model three feedback loops and their dialectic correlation were synthetically analyzed during rowing athletes studied the technique in training. The analyzed results provided the technical requests and measuring parameters of the system, then, a visual feedback system for rowing was designed and developed. This system has been primarily used in the national rowing team.
