Abstract: We tested the hypothesis that frontal lobe changes are associated with sexual offending in older men by administering frontal lobe tests to 50 older men incarcerated for sexual offences and to 50 older controls who were in prison for other crimes. This was part of a wider study on the psychiatric and personality characteristics of sexual offenders (Fazel et al., 2002). The control group was chosen in order to attempt to account for non-specific offender effects, and allow for comparison with demographic variables that might confound any potential association.
