    when disagreements occur

    Some researchers believe that music also conveys a practical evolutionary advantage: it aids in the organization of community life and in the forging of connections among members of one group when disagreements occur with another.

    Should I read it as follows: "...in the forging of connections among members of one group (when disagreements occur) with another."?

    Thanks.

    No. "When disagreements occur with another (group)" is an entire phrase.
