There is another working theory as to how this can happen, and that is from the holographic model of the universe. 

Karl Pribram (...professor at Georgetown University, in the United States, an emeritus professor of psychology and psychiatry at Stanford University and distinguished professor at Radford University), and, David Bohm (...an American scientist who has been described as one of the most significant theoretical physicists of the 20th century and who contributed unorthodox ideas to quantum theory, neuropsychology and the philosophy of mind) developed this model theory independently of each other from different disciplines (psychology and physics).

Karl Pribram found that it didn't matter what was done to a brain (unfortunately, mice were used in his experiments as they always seem to be), to the point that if the brain was chopped up and put back into a skull, the mouse lost none of its cognition but could not function as well. This exactly mirrors holography, in which every cut-up piece from a holographic plate, no matter how small, contains all the information of the original image, but each piece further derived from the original loses clarity or in other words the hologram gets fuzzier (like a copy of a copy of a copy…).

So the bottom line of this idea regarding the boy who lost part of his brain, is that all the information is spread across the entire brain like a holographic plate. This explanation for sight does not conflict with the fact that they found neural growth in a different part of the brain to compensate for the damaged parts, as the new growth may have derived from the holographic information which then created the physical structure to develop in a part of the brain that wasn't damaged.

That's very interesting, thank you Diana for sharing it!

Here's the link to the Wikipedia entry on the Holonomic brain theory and a video with Karl Pribram about the holographic brain, in case anyone else would be interested in this as well:

The link you posted for the interview with Karl Pribram was on the Thinking Allowed show with Jeffrey Mishlove. It was a great late-night public television show. Mishlove is very intelligent and he interviewed so many interesting people such as Krishnamurti, Stanslav Grof, Fred Alan Wolfe, Terrence McKenna, Ram Dass, and many more. My personal favorite is with Michael Talbot, author of The Holographic Universe, a brilliant book.
