Acetaminophen oral (APAP) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) are powerful medicines used to reduce and relief the pain. These painkillers used for mild to moderate pain relief but studies show that these pain killers affect both physical pain and social pain. The finding of a new scientific research noted that APAP and NSAID affect cognitive and affective processes. In this survey, we represent the effect of APAP and NSAID on human emotion (happiness, sadness, neutral) and behavior by using EEG brain signals. After that, we indicate the brain over activity and brain locations with Quantitative electroencephalography. At least we have statistical analysis with SPSS. As a result, APAP have a greater effect on emotions than NSAID.

Keywords: APAP, NSAID, EEG signal, painkiller, emotion.
