The Magneto-Hydrodynamic (MHD) system of equations governs the motion of viscous fluids subject to a magnetic field. Due to the difficulty of obtaining global solutions to the MHD system, it has become common to study modified versions of the system. In this paper, we prove the existence of a unique global solution to the incompressible MHD-α system with diffusion terms which are Fourier multipliers with symbols of the form m(ξ)=|ξ|γ/g(|ξ|) for γ>0 and g (essentially) a logarithm. Letting γ1 and γ2 be the regularity of the diffusion terms, we obtain global existence when γ1 and γ2 satisfy γ1,γ2>1, γ1≥n/3, and γ1+γ2≥n in Rn for n≥3.
