Global dynamics of the partly diffusive Hindmarsh–Rose equations as a new mathematical model in neurodynamics is presented and studied in this paper. The existence of global attractor for the solution semiflow is proved through uniform estimates showing the higher-order dissipative property and the ultimate compactness by the new approach of Kolmogorov–Riesz theorem.
