Okay, first, you'll need to research how sight and taste is perceived. Of course, taste buds, rods and cones in the retina, etc.

But I think the focus of your project is how much do the neurons carrying the signals for taste overlap with the neurons carrying the signals for sight. I don't know where taste and sight is perceived in the brain, so check up on that. But the signals should both go through the pons (relay center for the brain.)

However, in doing an experiment for this, it'll be hard to find any conclusive evidence... (just a warning...)

Good luck!
