I think I have the neurological disorder where two parts of my brain function as one. what is this called?

Not sure

Brain
It is difficult for me, now, to think of what you're thinking about? I have heard of people not having a certain structure in their brain, called the Corpus Collosum, which runs in the middle of the brain and connects the two sides which are called Hemispheres. Could that possibly be to what you are refering?

Dr. Kalyn Diamond answered:

What parts of the brain are most likely affected by Alzheimer's disease?

Medial temporal lobe

Alzheimers
Alzheimer's starts in the hippocampus and the medial temporal lobe. In end-stage Alzheimer’s there is widespread atrophy. Early onset Alzheimer’s (<65 years old) has a different presentation. There is usually some mild hippocampal atrophy, but the most striking finding is parietal atrophy, with atrophy of the posterior cingulum and the precuneus. The hippocampus can be normal. Hope this helps.

What parts of the brain are involved when you hear something and look at it?

Neuroanatomy

Cerebrum
Sound waves are transduced by the inner ear mechanism into a neural impulse in the auditory nerve, which then sends information to the brainstem, thalamus, and, ultimately, the auditory cortex for processing. In the eye, the retina transduces light into a neural impulse, and the optic nerve transmits this information to the thalamus and then to the visual cortex of the brain for processing.
