That is a very interesting and relevant statement. I wonder what the term "seed" means ... the source of what we are and what we become?
This is why I think most of us here are encouraging you to go and study the Dharma in detail before making comparisons between neurobiology and Buddhism.
Just as neurobiology, I am sure, takes many years of serious study before one is qualified to really discuss it in any depth at all, likewise too does Buddhism require many years of study.
My guess would also be that you are very able to spot someone who talks about neurobiology without really understanding it at all, for example, perhaps in the popular media. Those people may think that they know about it, because they read a book or two, but to an expert in the field, sometimes what they know is dubious at best. It's not that they lack sincerity, just that their understanding is superficial.
In the same manner, when I see someone asking "I wonder what the term 'seed' means", I can almost guarantee that they are a newbie in the field. I would strongly discourage them from making any sort of comparisons at this point, simply because they are in all likelihood going to misrepresent the Buddhist teachings.
Given 5-10 years of serious study, under expert teachers, then maybe the task of comparative study would be fruitful.
