there are several effects that can create similar effects...

radial blur (set type to 'zoom')
cc radial blur (set type to the 'zoom' types)
cc fast radial blur
cc light burst
cc light rays (although it's not the same type of light rays)

there is also trapcode's shine, but it is not a standard part of ae.

and there are probably some others that i'm forgetting...

i would probably start with cc light burst or cc fast radial blur, then look at the others if you don't get the effect you're looking for.

there's also a book you might be interested in called 'after effects illusionist' by chad perkins. it covers every standard effect in after effects.

it's less than $30 at amazon:
