Pedophilia, Hebephilia, and the DSM-V
It is indicated that hebephilia exists as a discriminable erotic age-preference by examining the agreement between self-reported sexual interests and objectively recorded penile responses in the laboratory.
Intelligence, memory, and handedness in pedophilia.
Pedophilia showed significant negative correlations with IQ and immediate and delayed recall memory and was related to non-right-handedness even after covarying age and IQ.

Results for offenders against women showed that those who had had sexual contact with the greatest number of women (consenting or nonconsenting) had the lowest probability of being diagnosed as pedophilic.
IQ, Handedness, and Pedophilia in Adult Male Patients Stratified by Referral Source
The results showed that the relations between pedophilia and lower IQ, lesser education, and increased rates of non-right-handedness were the same in homogeneous groups referred by lawyers or parole and probation officers as they were in a heterogeneous group referred by a miscellany of other sources, supporting the conclusion that the relation between Pedophilia and cognitive function is genuine and not artifactual.

Pedophiles: Mental Retardation, Maternal Age, and Sexual Orientation
Among pedophiles ingeneral, erotic preference moves away from adult women along two dimensions: age and sex, so that a pedophile with both factors is more likely to be sexually interested in boys than a Pedophile with only one.
Handedness in Pedophilia and Hebephilia
The results indicate that the rates of non-right-handedness in pedophilia are much larger than previously suggested and are comparable to the rates observed in pervasive developmental disorders, such as autism, suggesting a neurological component to the development of pedophilia and hebephilia.
Cerebral damage and dysfunction in sexually aggressive men
This study was a replication and refinement of an earlier report published by the authors and provides additional support for the hypothesis that some types of sexual anomalies are associated with subtle forms of brain damage.
