'''Otto Friedrich Karl Deiters''' (November 15, 1834 – December 5, 1863) was a German [[neuroanatomist]]. He was born in Bonn, studied at the University of Bonn, and spent most of his professional career in Bonn. He is remembered for his microscopic research of the [[brain]] and [[spinal cord]].
   
 
Around 1860, Deiters provided the most comprehensive description of a [[nerve cell]] that was known to exist at the time. He identified the cells' [[axon]], which he called an "axis cylinder", and its [[dendrite]]s, which he referred to as [[protoplasm]]ic processes. He postulated that dendrites must fuse to form a continuous network.

His name is lent to the ''nucleus of Deiters'', also called the [[lateral vestibular nucleus]], and ''Deiters' cell'', which is associated with outer [[hair cell]]s in the [[cochlea]] of the [[inner ear]]. Deiters died in 1863 from [[typhoid fever]] at the age of 29. After his death, his work concerning nerve cells of the spinal cord was edited and published by [[anatomist]] [[Max Schultze]] (1825-1874).
