We study the existence of attractors for partly dissipative systems in ℝⁿ. For these systems we prove the existence of global attractors with attraction properties and compactness in a slightly weaker topology than the topology of the phase space. We obtain abstract results extending the usual theory to encompass such two-topologies attractors. These results are applied to the FitzHugh-Nagumo equations in ℝⁿ and to Field-Noyes equations in ℝ. Some embeddings between uniformly local spaces are also proved.
