Do the activities performed before and after a user is identified attribute to one user?

I'm integrating Google Analytics through Segment.com. A user is identified with an ID if he/she signs up with an email. In Google Analytics, do the activities performed before and after a user is identified attribute to one user? I need to attribute these activities to one user to see their behavior flow (i.e. what's the initial interaction, what's the second interaction, third, etc).

Yes it does.
Go to Audience>User Explorer. The first couple of users should have multiple sessions, right?
Cheers

Thanks for the reply. I'm wondering if Google Analytics treats it as 2
users or merge to one user. Mixpanel merges user activity if 'alias' method
is called using Segment. Google Analytics doesn't accept the alias call
from Segment, so I'm wondering does that mean it treats as 2 different
users (1. anonymous, unidentified user 2. Identified user with userId)

GA should recognise the same user again.
But maybe this entry helps?
