A Pulsar is a Neutron star that sends out very regular pulses in most cases of radio waves. The pulsar in the Crab Nebula sends out light pulses as well. The emissions happen from the magnetic poles of the neutron star and reach the Earth once everytime the Neutron star rotates, that's very regular.
