Bill (and Christian),

Without knowing very much about your recording setup, here are two tips that may help:
1. Always use a separate ground for your stimulus (don't share the headstage ground)
2. The recording electrode and the stimulator ground electrode should be, as much as possible, symmetrically arranged relative to the stimulation electrode (e.g. on opposite sides of it).
