520    The high time-resolution radio sky represents unexplored 
       astronomical territory. This thesis presents a study of 
       the transient radio sky, focussing on millisecond scales. 
       As such, the work is concerned primarily with neutron 
       stars. In particular this research concentrates on a 
       recently identified group of neutron stars, known as RRATs,
       which exhibit radio bursts every few minutes to every few 
       hours. After analysing neutron star birthrates, a re-
       analysis of the Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey is 
       described which has resulted in the discovery of 19 new 
       transient radio sources. Of these, 12 have been seen to 
       repeat and a followup campaign of observations has been 
       undertaken. These studies have greatly increased our 
       knowledge of the rotational properties of RRATs and enable
       us to conclude that they are pulsars with extreme nulling 
       and/or pulse-to-pulse modulation. Although the evolution 
       of neutron stars post-supernova is not yet understood, it 
       seems that RRATs fit into the emerging picture in which 
       pulsar magnetospheres switch between stable 
       configurations.
